Great Espresso Coffee

I think they have one of the best espresso coffees in Penzance. It is served very hot, as it should be.

We (a group of 5) called in unannounced early on a windy and wet Saturday evening (approx 5pm). We promptly found a seat although the place certainly wasn't empty. We ummd and ahhd for a bit before all deciding to have a burger. The tapas did also look tempting but that will have to wait. The pricing was reasonable. The... More

I have been to The Vault bar many times as it is the only place in Penzance which is open every day and night & serves a wide range of amazing food at a reasonable price! Throughout the year they also have a very spacious outside seating area which during the summer can get very busy as it is a... More

When we saw there was a cocktail bar in Penzance we were very pleased, but unfortunately we were left a little underwhelmed. The bar was almost empty (Friday night around 6pm). We were both looking for an aperol spritz to kick off our evening but our waiter didn't know of aperol. I ordered campari soda which came in a glass... More

Very quiet when I visited on a Friday evening but at least my friends and I could discuss quantum physics and share jam recipes in peace. The cocktails were very good and I had several too many. The tapas was fairly average but edible.

Popped in here for lunch last Sunday, which let's face it, is not one of a rather run down looking Penzances' best days. Great service, with water and menus immediately provided. Plain and simple selection with a few specials on a chalk board. I had a mushroom and halloumi burger in brioche bun and my partner went for fish and... More

Generic cafe car in the centre of Penzance, where we arranged to meet a friend while on holiday in West Penwith. This is a pretty average 'bog standard' place with nothing special either to recommend or to make it stand out. OK if you need somewhere dependable but unexceptional

Staff were very nice but food, chilly cheese burger was poor. Meat dry and tasteless. Upstairs 'sun deck' simply a smokers area, dirty and dull. Better paces in the town.

What a great place. We went for lunch, it had A bistro type feel to the bar and a lovely terrace garden to sit when the sun shines. We ordered some tapas dishes and weren't disappointed. The food was fresh, delicious and plentiful. Beautifully presented. The staff are helpful and friendly. It is also dog and child friendly. We Will... More
