Review on The Vine House

Julie and Marcus Springett have been presiding over this delightfully preserved stone house since 1991 and have retained its character as a very personable country restaurant-with-rooms. Inside it still feels reassuringly homely with framed prints, china collectibles and rustic fabrics; there's also a pretty cottage garden at the back.

Menus change with the market and the seasons, and choice is sensibly restricted to just three options for each course. Start fashionably with carpaccio of organic salmon or stay in the comfort zone with smoked bacon, sausage and black pudding terrine topped with a poached egg and homemade ketchup. To follow, consider fillet of Cornish red mullet with pea risotto, korma curry and shellfish oil or sirloin of local Dexter beef with 'beef dripping' chips, garlic butter and summer leaf salad.

Finish with - say - rhubarb and orange crumble or elderflower jelly topped with local honey and lemon syllabub; alternatively check out the 'slate' of farmhouse cheeses. France is the main player on the appealing wine list.
