We previously came here mid week and really enjoyed it so returned on Saturday night. Made a booking for 20.30 and on arrival advised that they were just sorting our table so we had a drink in the bar. After 30 minutes I had to question a waitress as to when our table would be ready, she advised they were... More

Despite a few friends saying this place was not the best we Booked a a meal here to celebrate a friends birthday. After paying for poor over priced drinks we pushed to get our table as it was half an hour later than booked and nobody had bothered with us. After speaking with various staff it took about another 45... More

We hadn't heard of this hidden gem but bought a groupon voucher to give it a try and were certainly not disappointed ! We received a very warm welcome and the service was excellent throughout our visit. There was a good choice of starter and we chose the soup and the chicken terrine - both very tasty and good portion... More

With the rich surroundings of Birmingham���s Jewellery Quarter as its backdrop, The Vaults is among the city���s most celebrated restaurants. Set below a Victorian building one might expect gloom, but this restaurant is utterly contemporary, comfortable and light. Panton S chairs and seriously arty photography show an eye for design and style while brick arches furnished with sofas provide cosy spaces for romantic cocktails or swapping gossip. Headed up by Keith Brown, who comes via Bank and The Jam House, the kitchen provides a stunning British and European menu reliant on local, fresh and quality produce and simple, sympathetic and unfussy techniques. An impressive selection of wines and champagnes are the icing on The Vaults��� extremely tempting cake.
