When a country pub situated in a rural village keeps a loyal following of locals and visitors flowing through its doors, you know it’s special. Food and drink impress in equal measure at the Vine Tree, as do the characterful interior and the caring team. As you’d expect from a superb local, there’s plenty going on all-year round. On the food front, the head chef has an eye for seasonal produce, meaning fish and seafood hail from Cornwall, game is sourced locally and vegetables are picked at nearby allotments. Menus are kept interesting and feature a stunning line-up of dishes, while the carefully crafted and extensive wine list, gin selection, and beer and lager will quench your thirst. Let the kids (and dog) loose on the suntrap terrace in the fine weather. Sunday lunches will get the thumbs up, as will everything else you’ll find at the Vine Tree.
