The Vine, December 2001

Kinver's pretty much on the doorstep of Birmingham and the Black Country and during my years in the Midlands I made several trips to Kinver, mainly to walk along Kinver Edge and poke my nose into the old cave houses now looked after by the National Trust. A trot down the hill from the sandstone caves into the centre of Kinver, and then over the canal to the Dunsley side you'll find the Vine Inn on the left. A friendly mix of locals and visitors are attracted to this pub both for its excellent real ale and food. Decent friendly staff were quick to serve us a fine pint of Enville brewed just a handful of miles up the road. The pub's a true freehouse and it certainly takes advantage of this with a diverse range of ever changing real ales on offer. It was a bit chilly outside during our visit so we stayed inside, but there's a pleasant pub garden outside overlooking the canal.

The pub's developed quite a reputation for its good food. I had a great balti and the Shrewsbury lamb looked very good too. They offer a very wide range of restaurant quality dishes and some lighter bar snack options if you fancy something simpler. Food's available lunchtime and evenings weekdays and all day at weekends. The pub also welcomes children.
