Square Meal Review of The Old Vine ?

An attractive, understated Georgian pub set on a tiny cobbled square overlooking the cathedral green. It’s an enviable position on a sought-after street & offers a characterful modern take on the traditional hostelry-with-lodgings theme. The bar & restaurant blend period charm (oak beams, timbers & floorboards) with modern country styling, while the cooking suits both passing tourists & regulars. Local produce & eclectic influences sit happily on the menu, which might take in pub classics such as Hampshire pork sausages, creamy mash & rich onion gravy as well as confit duck with dauphinois potatoes & green beans or roasted salmon fillet with miso marinade & a sesame crust, wasabi mash, soya beans & bonito jus. To conclude, desserts stay in familiar, comforting territory for the likes of butterscotch & treacle sponge pudding. The small, part-covered terrace is popular in the summer.
