If you like Mussels you need to try the cider, chilli and bacon Mussels here, I've eaten Mussels all over Europe and these are the best ever. Totally awesome.

I tried the Cashew, Halloumi and Broccoli curry last night from the new menu, it was delicious. Genuinely one of the most enjoyable vegetarian meals I've had at a restaurant ever! Definitely recommend.

Looking for somewhere for lunch and stumbled across this place. Not many tables but nicely spaced out so doesn't feel overcrowded like some places can. Food was amazing. Good choice of vegetarian food and something for everyone. Excellent service, well worth a visit

Looked online for a cocktail bar in Penzance. The vault looked good on paper. Two girls working behind bar looked busy with diners.. Ordered two cocktails one peach and one coconut type. Took a while to arrive. Both very poor measures, no ice, no trappings....More

Popped in for a light bite lunch. Friendly staff and lovely food. I had the club sandwich! It was lovely. My husband had the crab cakes, they looked beautiful. Our son had the flatbread also lovely. ( maybe a gin or two)

Mainstream, chain establishment stylings. Average cocktail list and uninspired food menu. Waited more than half an hour for an order of two cold starters, which I asked to cancel and was told that they were very busy, but the place was half full. Went elsewhere.

Just went into vault for a couple of drinks and a quick bite to eat. I ordered two cocktails which tasted as good as they looked, amazing! Nachos to go along with the drinks, which are easily the best nachos I've had! I can't believe...More
