From the Vine Tree there are panoramic views over Stroud towards Rodborough and Selsley.

Cecil Sharp called into the Vine Tree Inn on April 9th 1908. He might have had one or two pints of Stroud Brewery Ales with Henry Bassett, the landlord, and persuaded him to sing. Cecil Sharp recorded Henrys rendition of the song ‘’the Rigs of London Town.” Cecil Sharp must have thoroughly enjoyed his job – cycling to superb unspoilt English pubs in Edwardian England, sampling the local ales and collecting folk music.

The Vine Tree is now a popular village pub that serves good food.
