The Vaults at the RSAThe Vaults restaurant is situated in the atmospheric former riverfront warehousing three floors below ground. The whole area was sympathetically renovated and restored in the late 1980's exposing fantastic original 18th century brickwork. The unusual fabric of the space gives the restaurant a unique atmosphere which complements the food and service style, providing you a relaxed and intimate environment to enjoy great food. The menu changes fortnightly and combines dishes from around the world with the Head Chef's philosophy of sourcing as many ingredients as possible from within Britain to reduce the 'food miles'. We select our meats from grazed herds only and fish from sustainable stocks which includes line caught fish and certified organic farmed stock. Those species on the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) endangered list, such as North Atlantic Cod, will not be served at the RSA.
<br>
All dishes are prepared daily on the premises from fresh rather than pre-prepared ingredients.
