Vicarage Opening in May 2021
Looking forward to opening in the Spring…….
We are delighted to confirm our re-opening date and are now taking advance bookings. The first available date is 20th May. Thereafter we shall be open for dinner every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6.00pm.
As the country wakes up and things get back to normal we may add further opening times according to demand.
Please understand that we are likely to get very busy, our experience from the last time we re-opened after the summer lockdown showed a surge in demand for the first few weeks. For the time were able to operate we were absolutely fully booked every single day, so we must take this opportunity to thank everyone most sincerely for this consistent support.
Since we shall still be working to a reduced seating capacity we do advise everyone to book early. As always we will be doing everything possible to make your visit safe and relaxing. We continue to operate to our usual high standards, within all the safety guidelines, still offering the same level of comfort and hospitality expected of our type of restaurant. We have not restricted any aspect of our service, the full prestige menu and our extensive wine list will always be available.
Please e-mail your booking requirements in the first instance:
- Time of your Arrival
- Number of people
- Telephone number
- Special dietary needs, allergies
We will respond with availability options. Everyone here is enthusiastic about getting back to work - we all look forward to welcoming you back to The Old Vicarage soon.

Extended fine wine list
We always offer excellent quality and value wines for everyday drinking from as little as £25 a bottle or a few pounds a glass.
We also have some of the finest wines in the world and we find that many of our regular customers visit The Old Vicarage as much for the extensive fine wine list as for the food so, to accommodate those guests wishing to explore the hundreds of rare wines in our cellar, we have now released some of our reserve stocks of fine wines, offering some of the best examples of classics from mature vintages over the last 50 years.
Highlights include a vertical of Vega Sicilia Unico
back to 1965; a collection of Brunello di Montalcino, Franco Biondi-Santi
, back to 1975, every major vintage of Ch. Lafite
and Ch. Latour
from the 60s and 70s, plenty of depth in reliable estates like Gruaud Larose
and Leoville Barton
, along with Red Burgundy Grands Crus
by the late René Engel, mature Meursault
, Premier and Grands Crus from Leflaive
and Comte Lafon.
For those with tastes outside the conservative classics we have old Rhone from Guigal, some intriguing oddities from traditional winemakers like Domaine de Trévallon and Domaine Tempier, as well as mature vintages of excellent New World wines such as Ridge Monte Bello and Opus One.
Good Food Guide Quote: "The wine collection offers strength in depth, stellar growers and outstanding vintages".
All of this is offered with great cooking and service to match!
