We had never been here before but it had been recommended to us so we sought it out. You go down a set of stairs into a cosy cellar bar. Fabulous open fire. Very friendly welcome too from the bar lady. We had drinks but...More

Visited at the beginning of the month whilst visiting Newark. After struggling to find somewhere to eat we had a quick google and settled on the vaults. The venue itself is quirky and fantastic. The open fire in what serves as the tap room creates...More

This is a cosy little place with very helpful and friendly staff. Their lunch menu is not that extensive but should cover most people’s tastes. The meals are excellent and good quantities so you should leave feeling full. They have a large selection on ciders...More

Down the stairs into a great little bar in the cells s. The vaulted ceiling and fire gave it a great atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and the food was really good. Would happily go back if we visit Newark again

Me and five others came here for a few beers and food last week. The range of real ales is good and the food was awesome. I would without a doubt revisit this place.

This is one of those places that you are not sure what to expect from the exterior but once you have navigated the stairs down to the bar, its a perfect spot to sample a couple of tasty ales. Great friendly staff and always a...More

From outside it looked a bit closed and unwelcoming but push the door open and walk down the stairs and all was well. Good service. Good ales. A lovely and pleasant environment. We'll worth discovering.

The Vaults is Newark's first Cider and Ale House and is situated in old cellars on Newark's historic Northgate within walking distance of Newark Castle, the River Trent and the unique charm of Newark town centre. Newark is nationally recognised for many things including its role in the Civil War but one of the most exciting developments of recent years is that of the Real Ale Trail which has been embraced with enthusiasm by those who appreciate the quality of fine beers who are more than willing to support the huge growth in microbrewing over the last few years. The Vaults now has a fully operational restaurant, serving Great British classics, great homemade burgers and chicken wings to die for. There's something for everyone. Come in for a well kept pint of ale from local breweries, a quick lunch, or dinner with friends. We cant wait to welcome you in.
