The Vine Tree, Norton, near Malmesbury
Welcome to The Vine Tree at Norton – privately owned and run by Tiggi Wood and Charles Walker; this award-winning free house offers scrumptious, innovative food with frequently changing menus.

Formerly an old mill, serving beverages through the front windows to travellers in passing carriages, The Vine Tree is nestled in the tiny picturesque traditional English hamlet of Norton on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border on the edge of the Cotswolds.

Today the Inn offers a warm inviting atmosphere with lashings of character, flagstone floors, a wealth of old beams and a large welcoming open fire in the central bar.

Situated close close to the historic towns of Tetbury, Cirencester and Malmesbury, The Vine Tree is perfectly placed for you to enjoy lunch and a walk. 

Join us for a delectable dining experience, for a special occasion, or at one of our exciting event nights or simply just for a cosy drink – choose from our extensive, hand-picked selection of International wines and bubbles from Charles’s cellar, local and speciality beers and lagers or one of our 32 gins.

We can readily cater for any intimate private occasion, an antique fair or a ball for 500 (possibly more) in a marquee in our three-acre grounds. We host family get-togethers, birthday parties, anniversaries, christenings, weddings and wakes.

Our terrace makes an ideal attractive venue for a smaller celebration and was recently used for a 90th birthday lunch and a marriage blessing for 60 people.

We also enjoy being personally involved with the local community as much as we can, whether that’s playing an active part in some of the best events in the Cotswolds, or hosting our own, we like to make sure there’s always something going on!

We are open 365 days a year and both the bar and restaurant serve scrumptious food seven days a week and are licensed between 7.30am and 2am for pre-arranged functions as required.
