Valentines day, Friday 14th February 2020
We are open on 14th February, as usual we have a special menu to celebrate Valentines day - please book well in advance, there is very limited availability.
We are taking reservations throughout the evening from 6.30pm onwards until 10.00pm
We have an exciting menu with champagne reception and unlimited all-inclusive flight of wines especially chosen by our sommelier. Alternatively, if you are looking for something extra special and we will need to prepare and decant in advance, you may choose from our extensive list of fine and rare wines (in which case instead of the flight of wines there is an allowance of £30 per person towards the cost of whatever you choose).
We can only take advance bookings. Please see the menu and booking details:
Depending on your local PC and web browser setup the menu will either open in the browser or will be downloaded and can be viewed with any PDF reader such as that provided by Adobe. Most PCs have a PDF reader installed by default.

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!
