The Sunday Roast Platter

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... read more

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...

Hi Gordon, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this lovely review! We are very proud of the platters and everyone does seem to love them.

Hello Ed, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am a little concerned that you got the impression we are not child friendly. We have a children's menu and also offer a child's roast for £1 on a Sunday lunch. There are books and toys and also the garden which we make sure the gate to the... More

We were in Faversham for a brewery tour but wanted to explore the town and have lunch first. The day was cold but we ended up spending a lovely long time in this wonderful pub restaurant. The landlady served us drinks at the bar along with loads of advice about the town and a dash of history. Then we found... More

It would be easy to miss this gem, but do not be fooled by the quiet frontage!! The building is very unique and interesting. Lots of captivating nooks and crannies and compelling objects that captivated my curiosity. The staff were friendly and made us feel completely at home as did the apparent locals and regulars. The menu had daily specials... More

This was the only pub in Faversham on a Sunday lunch time that had space and wasn't packed with reservations... I think that says something! A very average roast dinner will always make a reservation else where in the future! Pork was fatty, Yorkshire puddings felt like aunt Bessie's and I had an upset stomach the next day... Although can't... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am assuming that you visited us on Sunday 5th of April, if so the roast meats that day was a choice of roast topside or roast turkey both from our local butcher and both Kent reared. If however it was another Sunday then the pork (also locally reared) would have... More
