I used to go here when it was a buzzing bar that served great tapas style food. However when I returned recently, even though it was a Saturday night, there was only 1 rowdy hen party eating in the restaurant area. The bar was reasonably empty and I stood waiting to get a drink. One of the bar men was... More

$ of us meet up in Cambridge a few times a year to reminisce about University days. Have been going for 28 years now. This weekend we visited on Saturday 12 July 2014. Decided to have lunch at Vaults as we had been before. This lunch was a disaster - £7.95 one course, ok not a great deal but the... More

We stopped by for lunch as they advertised 'pulled pork' burgers outside and that sounded great. Once we were seated and ready to order we were told that they were out of pulled pork. Disappointed we ordered standard beef burgers. The Waitress was really miserable and in a rush but I guess I would be if I had five tables... More

By far my favourite bar in Cambridge!! The food is always spot on and the cocktails are so, so good. It's a real hidden gem and the staff are always really friendly and fun. Every trip to Cambridge should be rounded off with some food and bevvies in The Vaults.

The food is fantastic and of a very high standard and the staff are very welcoming and helpful with the cocktail selection. It's a place that's suitable for all ages - I took my dad here for his 50th and... More

I would highly recommend the Vaults in Cambridge as a place to go for all - couples, groups of friends, or large parties celebrating a special occasion.Great tapas style food and range of cocktails, especially recommend the fruit pastel. Have enjoyed some excellent live jazz/bands there on Friday/Saturday nights, as well as as had some good boogeys on the dance... More

I would highly recommend the vaults. I went there last week and had a lovely time, the manager, Inge, was very accommodating and made me a lovely cocktail before my dinner which was delicious. We ended up staying there all night and I will definitely be returning. The atmosphere was welcoming and all the staff were friendly and chatty. The... More

I've been here twice, the first time was in December and again this weekend. The happy hour cocktails are lovely, particularly the fruit pastel (tastes as advertised!) and the long island iced tea, yum! I had another one called thai for tea or something, wouldn't recommend that unless you like things to taste purely of coriander. But the venue is... More
