The Vine Inn in Clent, between Bromsgrove and Stourbridge and just a thirty minute drive from central Birmingham, is a traditional English inn and restaurant set in the beautiful Clent Hills of northern Worcestershire. Serving drinks, food and merriment since its establishment in 1836, The Vine Inn is an original gastropub, much before the term became trendy in big-city bars. The Vine Inn, in close cooperation with local farmers, specialised in fresh fish and game, although vegetarians are well-catered to, too, with plenty of a la carte choices and daily changing specials.
A licensed inn since the 19th century, The Vine Inn in Clent is a family-friendly, traditional English pub and restaurant. Catering for families, couples, groups, and the odd team of ravenous hikers in muddy boots, The Vine Inn serves hearty pub grub to locals and Birmingham city-dwellers eager to find food sourced locally. The Vine Inn takes its food seriously. The restaurant operates in close cooperation with local farmers, to ensure that diners are offered meat and fish that is both sourced locally and farmed freely, so diners can find boar, venison and cod, alongside traditional pub favourites like Sunday Roast.
As a traditional inn, of course The Vine Inn has a fine range of real ales, scrumpies, English wines and a smattering of foreign lagers and other tipples. On clement days, drinkers and diners can sit out in the large terraced garden at the pub’s rear and soak up the quiet Clent Hills, hidden close to Birmingham city centre. The Vine Inn is open daily for lunch and dinner and is available to cater events for larger groups too.
The food was delicious, the services was very friendly, the place was beautifully, there are lovely fireplaces, all in all an experience will go to again. We loved it.
Had lunch at the Vine with sister and brother-in-law. Excellent food and service, couldn't be faulted. Nice atmosphere to venue also; building is cosy and open fires add to ambience.
Lovely evening. We had the chilli prawns and stuffed mushrooms, pork belly, venison and bread and butter pud, date and toffee pud with salted caramel ice cream. Food and service excellent. Booked for Christmas week already.
