This place is amazing... a hidden gem in Birmingham! My husband bought a voucher on Groupon so I wasn't sure what to expect but this place is up there on my list of restaurants to visit again. It's the perfect place to meet friends for a drink but also for an intimate dinner with your partner! The food is simply... 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

I visited the restaurant a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed it. Sadly, things have changed for the worst! First of all they did not have our booking, which isn’t too much of a problem as they could accommodate us anyway. Be prepared the place is FREEZING, not sure if they are trying to cut down on energy... More

We enjoyed a three course evening meal here last Thursday which we bought on Groupon It was very well presented by Tia a lovely polite bubbly young waitress. The sea bass was cooked perfectly served with Thia cous cous, my better half had chicken stuffed with goats cheese, we were impressed.

For £29 for two 2 course meals and a glass of wine (or Pint of Lager) each it was a good value deal. The restaurant is a bit strange but the food was pretty good. The men in our party ordered soup to start and I can't recall what the ladies ordered. For mains 2 of us had chicken stuffed... More

The food here was decent but I wasn't blown away by it and am not a fan of how it is laid out. I know someone that went here recently though and was much more impressed.

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.
