The Vine Tree, near Malmesbury

Once an old mill serving drinks to travellers through the front windows, The Vine Tree is a magical place to sit back and relax, whether you are in your walking attire from a stroll in the surrounding countryside or city finery. Pop in for a little aperitif and say “hello”, or stay longer to indulge in some tongue-teasingly good food, the choice is yours.

Run by Tiggi Wood and Charles Walker, the Vine Tree serves up an extra warm welcome, fabulous range of drinks and ever-changing menu packed with delicious flavours. On entering the pub, the first port of call is definitely the bar. Home to a wide range of international wines and fizz from Charles’ cellar, local beers and ales and an impressive selection of gins (34 and counting!) you are sure to find your favourite tipple.

But the fun doesn’t stop here. Proffering an extensive menu of foodie favourites, a meal here is not to be rushed but to be savoured with every bite. An award-winning establishment, much produce is locally sourced, including fish and fresh fruits de mer from Cornwall and Brixham and game from local estates. Start off your meal with the Port Isaac squid or seasonal tempura vegetables with chilli jam. For seconds, the rump of English lamb is sure to have you salivating in anticipation, as is the fishermen’s favourite Catalan paella.

With room for loved up couples, groups of friends, little kids, big kids and four-legged friends, the Vine Tree welcomes all. If you have special dietary requirements, just let the staff know and they’ll be happy to accommodate your needs. Keep an eye out for the array of events held at the pub too – a great way to meet locals and other visitors.
