This review is late (Christmas & life got in the way!) but it's worth reading for a balanced view: I was looking around for somewhere different to host my graduation meal with family and friends. My husband and I went along to take a look...More

Food was fine but no hot drinks?!?!... A coffee or cup of tea with a chocolate Brownie is compulsory isn't it?... Get a kettle and coffee machine please.

Since I booked my Groupon voucher about 3 weeks ago the ratio of poor reviews has shot up. I see why. The website pictures of the resteraunt area don't look like where we sat. It's a lovely setting for bar (booths in arch ways) but...More

Hello, well I am not too sure. I believe the best is to contact the place and directly ask staff member, they must know I believe.

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.
