Situated on the river, The Vaults at RSA House restaurant is a stunning underground setting surrounded by exposed 18th-century brickwork. The eclectic menus are packed with local, sustainable ingredients.

The Vaults restaurant takes inspiration from all around the world, but sustainability is at its core so where possible it sources everything locally. The Vaults at RSA House menu changes fortnightly, but always offers fresh, flavour-packed dishes.

Expect the likes of hickory-smoked duck breast with chicory, clementine and tarragon salad for starters followed by baked cod with caramelised kohlrabi. Puddings include passionfruit panna cotta with valhrona chocolate and coconut crisp.

Reflecting its ethos, nothing in the Marine Stewardship Council endangerment list will ever be served in the restaurant and all taxable profits are used to support RSA’s charity work. The Vaults at RSA House in London can be found a 3-minute walk from Charing Cross Tube Station.

    Brilliant apart from fish slightly undercooked - nearly sent back.

    A very enjoyable lunch. My two course lunch with a colleague was very good and very reasonably priced. The surroundings are pleasant and, crucially, are a quite haven away from the street. An excellent place to lunch just a short distance from Trafalgar Square, uncluttered and ideal for business meeting. The service was excellent and not intrusive. I had the poached egg salad (excellent) followed by the chicken (also good but not sure about the smoked gnocchi). Will go again as soon as the opportunity arises.

    A delightful restaurant in an outstanding setting. We found the service a little slow but the food was delicious and the portions about the right size. We would have welcomed a cafetiere of coffee with smaller cups rather than the very large cups which were served. Altogether a memorable experience. Thank you!

    I lunch several times a year at The Vaults and it's always good. This time was no exception. Great service, fresh and tasty food, good prices. What more can anyone ask?

    Good well-priced lunch menu. Combination of soup plus cod was light but tasty.

  • ((((( by from EAST GRINSTEAD

    The Vaults at RSA have a high class but quick lunch dining experience with a 2 or 3 course menu. The staff are friendly, professional and quick to take your order for a business lunch. The food is delicious and suited to a lunch or dinner experience. I would highly recommend Vaults for a business or tete a tete meeting.
