Booked and paid deposit for a works christmas function well in advance. Had a phone call on the day cancelling due to the kitchen flooding. The kitchen had flooded on the Monday and we weren't told until the thursday. They did refund the deposit and we managed to get a reasonable compensation payment. Very disappointing.

Xmas works party.. Where do we begin.. I suppose the starters would be a good idea!! I ordered lime and tuna ceviche, what turned up was a plate of florentine lettuce, with tinned tuna and a wedge of lime... Not the best of starts but I waited with baited breath for my sirloin of beef, goose fat potatoes, all the... More

We chose this restaurant for our team Christmas Dinner as the menu looked to offer a good choice to cover all tastes and some of our group had been in the past and it had been good. Well, I have to tell you, it isn't good now! Firstly, it was cold, both in the bar and then also when we... More

My friends and I have developed a route of happy hour, which makes us VERY happy. We don't mind paying the £2 on the door if needed, and love the fruit pastille cocktail. Some of the others on the happy hour list aren't so good but you can't like it all...

Only just noticed this place as it is very hidden down some steps right next to a shop and into this quaint little restaurant/bar you go. Waiters are very friendly...service was average, environment was lovely - well apart from a very loud load of guests on another table where one ladies laugh shook the whole restaurant but that's not the...

We had Saturday lunch at the Vaults recently. We chose it because we wanted a light meal and knew they did tapas. They don't have tapas anymore but nonetheless we could see some lighter options. I chose a caprese salad. I received a few slices of tomato which had come straight from the fridge and chewy, yellow cheese. I complained... More

My partner & I used to drop in here on occasion for a cocktail before going to dinner elsewhere & the Arts Cinema. We only ate here once & never returned. The food was poor & overpriced but the cocktails were good & the staff behind the bar friendly. It used to do a good selection of happy hour drinks... More

Went in for a friend's birthday for happy hour cocktails on a Sunday afternoon. Ordered 2 Long Island IceTeas and 2 Silver Mercedes.....well, the Long Island Ice Tea tasted of Coke plus lemon and lime....alcohol, what alcohol?! Asked the bartender how it was made as it was unlike other Long Island Teas we've tried. She was rude, disinterested and told... More

The food here, while at a large group gathering, was good; I would prefer my steak a bit more tender though. The menu selection was very good and the starters delicious. The desserts were ok, and the prices as expected for a normal restaurant. I did not visit the bar/drinks area, so I cannot comment on that, only the dining... More
