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.
