Good food in a quirky setting

Loved the setting in the vaults. The food was fantastic-portions were on the large side which suits me well as I would rather have too much than too little. Well priced

This is a lovely restaurant. It has consistently been very good over the times we have been there. The food is very nice, especially the Fillet Steak at (£21.99 for 8Oz) and I would highly recommend this with Black pepper Sauce (£2.99). There is a good selection of other meals as well, including fish which is cooked well too and... More

Varied menu and most of us had steak and chips all cooked to different tastes and none of us could fault any of the meal. The onion rings and peppercorn sauce that accompanied it were beautiful and the wine selection was great. When one of... More

We never actually had the opportunity to eat there on the night in question. The downstairs area, where we had specifically booked a table for a birthday celebration (two weeks beforehand), actually had a private party in full swing when we arrived. What I am able to comment on however is the customer service and manner in which the staff... More

What a dramatic title to your response. It hardly fits your experience overall from what you have written. Firstly you were not forgotten. You entered the Wine Vaults and were served drinks in the bar and sat waiting to be seated at your table. A lot of our customers have drinks before they sit down and then let us know... More

Very nice venue, spread over three floors. Obviously very popular. Steaks were cooked to perfection but also melt in the mouth quality. Great service. All lovely. Felt like acspecial occasion.

We always enjoy our meals at the Wine Vaults whether with our little ones (staff are very accommodating) or if just the two of us, its also a very nice place to have a few drinks - nice atmosphere.
