Planned a hen night here months in advance but on the day itself the chef did not turn up so our meal was cancelled two hours before. Very very disappointing. The guys at the bar were good but the management not very professional.

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.
