As we often visit Southampton for the Mayflower theatre, we like to combine this with an early evening meal. The Vestry is immediately opposite the theatre, so first it is very convenient, just a short walk across the road.
Next point. We had booked the theatre for the evening show starting at 7.30pm. The Vestry advertised evening meals starting at 6.30. This would have been cutting the meal time a bit short.
One call to the Vestry and they said OK, come when you want, and we will make sure you are not late for the evening show.
We arrived at 5.00pm, had a pleasant drink, and were shown to our table. All very customer focused. The menu, although not extensive, was excellent. I chose the Tuna salad, and was amazed at just how much was on the plate. It could not be bettered.
This was the third meal we have had there, and each time we are amazed at the superb quality for what is a very reasonable price. For the two drinks, a two course meal, and coffee, £46 for two. Really good.
The actual restaurant has been converted from the old church, and has been done very tastefully. It all adds to the meal experience, the meet and greet through to the fact that the waiter was observant enough to know when to bring the bill without us having to ask. Excellent evening made better for the Vestry experience. Our thanks to the management and staff.
