The Vine Pub & Dining Rooms on Ware High Street has set a new standard in combining pub with grub.
Lovely plush leather sofas, neutral colours and blonde wood flooring sets the scene for great food using ingredients sourced, where possible, from local suppliers nearby. The beers come courtesy of small independent breweries, but the wise diner would do better to engage with the wine list, which is long, varied and interesting with a welcome emphasis on the collective mix. The result is a lively, intimate atmosphere sustained by a helpful and accomodating staff.
In the very centre of Ware The Vine sits serving an appreciative local population for whom there are just enough of the little extras to make this a home from home, where you can eat without having to do a calculation first. British food with an international flavour are chalked up on blackboards and there is always a vibrant programme of events.
