“Excellent food - another good find thanks to trip advisor”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Sightseeing trip to Sussex coast brought us to Beccles for 2 nights.
My wife always chooses restaurants from trip advisor reviews and we are rarely let down.
So we chose this one as it was top rated. Great meals , reasonably priced. Returned the following night for prefectly cooked steak.
Gets busy even mid week so make sure you book

“celebration with our family”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

When i phoned to book our table i mentioned to the lady it was for an engagement celebration and wanted to do something special for the happy couple, she suggested perhaps a balloon and some confetti on the table would be nice, and she would organise this for me. We arrived and was told we were in the cellar which was lovely as it was a hot evening and it was really cool down stairs. At the table everything was in place as promised. while we looked at the menu we were offered drinks and some more people arrived, they felt a little cold so the staff were happy to move them upstairs which i thought was excellent service. The menu was such a good variety we found it hard to choose one dish. we all enjoyed the meal and wine and cannot fault anything with the food. we were not rushed and found the staff warm and attentive. This was are second visit and i would recommend the Wine Vaults as lovely experience.

“Return visit”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This was our second visit to this restaurant which from the reviews already given is clearly very popular. Unfortunately our first visit did not live up to expectations and have to say we were both very disappointed taking into consideration the cost of the meal and the excellent reviews we had based our visit on.
Thankfully our second visit bore no resemblance to the first. After this visit the owners did contact me and did offer an explanation about the shortcomings. They were clearly not satisfied with the quality of service on that night.
Following our second visit I can now understand why this restaurant receives such good reviews. On arrival we were made to feel extremely welcome even though the bar was very busy. We were sat at our table and the service was as good as any restaurant locally and further afield that I have previously eaten in. The staff were very friendly, engaged in conversation and gave an impression that nothing would be too much trouble if requested and they were actually interested in you as a customer.
The menu had changed from our previous visit which was nice to see, so many restaurants keep serving up the same dishes year on year which makes a return visit somewhat boring.
When each dish was served it was found to be fresh and tasty. This isn't a cheap restaurant to visit (maybe that's just our personal choice of food) but having said that it is good value. There is a pleasant relaxed atmosphere which made us feel welcome.
I would certainly recommend this restaurant to others and will be visiting again in the near future.

“Friendly and welcoming”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Had a lovely lunch and later on a 'sharing platter' which is an excellent idea but comes in a bucket, not a big one, a small one, with pretend newspaper in it, I rather liked that. It's not a place to go if you are in a hurry and want fast food, it is, however, a place to go with friends for a leisurely lunch or a delicious evening meal. The staff are all welcoming and friendly, especially a rather mad lady who I think needs sectioned, she goes by the name of Raquel (I think she ha delusions of grandeur) If you're in Beccles do try this place, much friendlier than the dreadful Swan 'there's no place for you here' House or the terrible 'boil in a bag' Kings Head.

“Beautiful meal!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Had a really lovely meal at the wine vaults on Saturday evening. We were there to celebrate my birthday and the food and wine did not disappoint! Three of us had steaks and one ordered a special baked cod, all of the steaks were cooked exactly as ordered and I am assured the cod was amazing! All in all an outstanding meal, great service and a lovely atmosphere.
