The Vine is a traditional pub dating from the 16th Century, once used by the brewing trade for selecting and pricing hops before they were sent off for processing. Now, it boasts heartwarming food in a cosy, comforting interior. A large area to the front of the building caters for alfresco diners, while a small courtyard to the rear seats a further 12 diners looking to soak up a little British sunshine.

The menu of traditional pub food is supplemented by game from a large local estate; vegetables and fruit are supplied by local retailers in the village. Meals can be enjoyed in the small dining room and bar area, while the pool room is, as I write this, being converted into a restaurant area - complete with a crackling log fire.

My choice of starter - breaded Brie wedges with cranberry sauce - arrived on a bed of salad. My wife chose breaded lemon sole goujons with tartare sauce on a bed of rocket, which she was very happy with indeed. For the main course we both decided upon the game casserole - a hearty mix of venison, partridge and hare in thick gamey gravy with a creamy mash topping. I had no room for dessert, but my wife's sweet tooth got the better of her - after much deliberation she opted for the lovely light lemon cheesecake - a zesty little slice of heaven.
