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.

    Good - much more pleasant than squashing into a West End restaurant.

    I made this booking for my boss - he said the venue was interesting, the food was very nice and just the right portion size for lunch. Perfect for a business lunch.

    This has become the favourite location for our reunion lunches! The food and the service are excellent. The menus are delicious and beautifully presented We like the "private" dining experience in the little alcoves.We are already talking about the next occasion!

    Excellent food. attractive location. Spacious, quite private. A place in a alcove is almost a private dining room.

  • ((((* 21 April 2017 by Stefanie Fischer from London

    The food was tasty and the portion sizes suited to having a meal at lunch time. My guest had become a vegan unbeknown to me and that was accommodated without prior warning and not withstanding there were no vegan options on the menu.

    Excellent quality and beautifully presented food from friendly and efficient staff. Atmospheric dining as good as anywhere in London at extremely good value.

    Food exceptional; service always attentive but not intrusive. As a Fellow, always pleased to showcase the RSA to clients and lunch at The Vaults is the 'icing on the cake' !

    Thank you. See you soon.
