Had a pre booked (and paid for) Christmas team meal at this restaurant recently, the restaurant had not laid up enough places at the table and barely had room for the ones they had set-up for. No real attention to customer service, food average at best. I wrote to the manager to explain that piling them in at Christmas and... More

We went to Vanilla last night for our girls Christmas supper. We had a fabulous lively evening. Good food and Prosecco. Reasonable price. Friendly service.

I have met many young women who organise every Saturday around, returning recent purchases. They will tell you that they have to take back something that they recently bought because, "it is not suitable". Most stores will accept the item back and give a refund, however, they are not under a legal obligation to do so unless the goods are... More

We have visited Vanilla on a number of occasions over the past couple of years & have always been exceptionally pleased with both the food & the service. However our visit with family last night was probably the worst dining experience I have had in terms of the customer service. Before ordering we were informed one of the vegetarian options... More

My wife and I have eaten at Vanilla three times now and the latest time was as good if not better than the previous two. The food was excellent quality and reasonably priced. Our only criticism was the wine price which we felt was too high for the 2 bottles we had. Whilst the wine we chose was one we... More

This was an early evening visit reflecting the end of a busy week and no interest in cooking by then. We'd rung the night before and ate at 6:15. It was quiet but the staff were friendly and the food excellent. The lower mark reflects the inclusion of a service charge in the bill which was optional and we had... More

A very attractive restaurant, with exemplary service. We had the early bird special before going to the theatre. Mushroom Risotto was perfectly cooked, Chorizo, Red Pepper & Crouton Salad was very tasty. Couldn't fault either the Salmon Fishcake and Wilted Spinach & Chive Veloute, or the Chargrilled Cotswold Beef Burger, Hand Cut Chips, Leaf Salad . Vanilla Crème Brulee couldn't... More
