Dining Areas

When booking at Grub & Vine, you’ll have a choice of two dining areas. In the main dining area, expect gorgeous views of the city in a contemporary setting with a vibey, buzzing atmosphere. The Green Room is Grub & Vine’s separate dining room, situated away from the hustle & bustle of the main dining area. Aptly named for its greenery and garden-inspired décor, the Green Room is ideal for romantic date nights and intimate gatherings, and has a small outdoor courtyard.

To book a table in your area of choice, simply select ‘Grub & Vine’ for the main dining area or the ‘Green Room @ Grub & Vine’ as your seating preference when booking via the Dineplan widget.

Private Dining Room
Our private dining room consists of a 24 seater communal dining table, a private bar and a cosy courtyard. Contact us directly to book for your special lunch or dinner.

At Grub & Vine we offer a small, seasonal menu. If you have any dietary requests, please inform us at the time of your booking and it will be our pleasure to accommodate you.
