Will Larter left this review about The Vine Inn

A small brick-built village pub with what is claimed to be a large beer garden, though it being the middle of winter I didn't check it out. There are two rooms, at right angles to the road, with bar shared between them and two hand pumps on each bar counter. (See photo for other beers on at the time of my visit.) 

The barman was very friendly, and apologised that the Camra discount had been disabled on the till so that it couldn't be applied to half pints. He went on to mention that wine by the glass was £3.90 but when, following customer feedback, the pub company introduced chardonnay, it was priced at £4.60. We agreed that the stuffed shirts and accountants who run pubcos were what machine guns were invented for.
