Couldn't make out if a wine bar, club or Restaurant when walking past , but the food was ok, Prawn Starters little tasteless, but steak was good. Meal for two £30 so very good value. Informal dining and very good service . Great courtyard for the summer.We will be back.

Went with friends last Sunday and ate down in the vaults, which is atmospheric and very different from most Sunday lunch venues. We had three courses and found the food very reasonable, served hot, with adequate portions. The tiger prawn starter in particular was noteworthy, with very juicy prawns. The main course beef wasn't underdone like in some places that... More

I used to walk past this restaurant but don't make the same mistake. Food and great staff, extremely relaxing time. The roast are great although the pork has changed it's still lovely. Definitely worth a visit.

We regular visit the Georges Vault, sometimes only for a drink, but mainly for one of their special offers ( 2 Main plus bottle of wine) for £ 20.00. We never found any fault at the vault. The sundays roast especially when taken down in the Vault is highly to be reccomended, and the setting is spectacular. If you are... More

We shared lunch here after our visit to the Cathedral and the Castle. The food was excellent, I can recommend a visit there. A good wine list and good selection of good meals. It was well worth the wait.

Now don't get me wrong, because I really like this place when visited on nights out, but I had never eaten there before today. A friend and I after wandering along the High Street decided to have lunch here. I went for the Larder Board which consisted of Ham hock, grilled chicken, root vegetable slaw, grilled vegetables, chutneys and homemade... More

Me and my girl friends have had some great meals at this place, and really enjoyed the food in the past. But have to say really think the food is not as good as last few years and other customers were complaining when we were there. The puddings were very poor and really not worth the money, also the starter... More

I like the George Vaults, another splendid eating establishment in High Street, Rochester, Kent. A friend and his wife invited ne there and as I have passed the building many times this was a good opportunity to find out what it was like inside. It really is a very nice, luxurious venue throughout and I was more than impressed with... More

As with other reviewers, we had walked past this place many times as we weren't sure what sort of a place it was. Decided to risk it after looking at the menu. The service was excellent, very friendly and prompt. Food really very good. I had the halloumi and butternut squash flat bread, which came with salad and salsa. The... More
