Excellent value for money

Last minute visit on a friday evening. Busy but very pleasant pub, small outside huge inside. 2 drinks each, combo curry for 2 and a very nice sweet each £26. Very nice food with good service. Hard to beat on a Friday night.

Faversham has a lot of good restaurants and we have gradually worked our way around all of them. We hadn't been to The Vaults as we hadn't heard many glowing recommendations - though we hadn't heard anything that would put us off. We were rather later and got their just as the kitchen was about to close at 9pm. We... More

I can't really rate this place as a pub although it looks nice enough although it isn't cheap and check youor change. I'm commenting on a group event and I appreciate you can't please everyone. Had a group get-together at the Old Wine Vaults last week. A buffet was laid on for about 30 - 40 people and the food... More

Hello Fred, Thank you for taking the time to sign up to trip advisor to write your first review. I will try to address your points. Firstly we are a highly rated pub, we are passed as Cask Marque standard, this involves at least two unannounced visits a year to test the quality of the cask conditioned beers (real ales)... More

Thank you John for taking the time to write this review. Deceiving from the outside isn't it? We also are lucky to have a large garden.

We have just had our fifth Sunday Lunch platter here. Just superb value and great atmosphere! We are now going through the options for the second time and all agree the roast pork is fabulous! The joint is brought to the table with a carving set - very sharp knife- so it's like home from home. Yet again, we couldn't... More

This must be the best Sunday lunch in town. No messing about with a few slices of meat on a plate, rather a whole joint brought to the table. Our choice was the Pork, it was beautifully cooked with stunning crackling. The veg was plentiful and well cooked, the roasties crisp and the Yorkshire pudding clearly homemade, so much better...

My husband and I (not the Royal We) and our 'usual suspects' love going to The Vaults for the Sunday Roast platter! We have tried all three options and are returning this Sunday to begin the rotation again! Great value, good food, cheerful staff and no washing up! Can't see us giving up our Sunday treat any time soon!
