The Vaults, Southsea reopens

Fuller, Smith & Turner, the premium pubs and hotels business, is delighted to announce The Vaults in Southsea – formerly The Wine Vaults – has reopened after an extensive refurbishment.

The Vaults’ warren-like layout has plenty of bookable spaces, making it perfect for any occasion – from dinner with friends, to private parties or drinks tucked away in one of its many nooks. The pub hosts four bars across its three floors – comprising three main bars plus one in its upstairs function room. Across the four bars, there’s a wide selection of premium wines and spirits – with an impressive list of cocktails available too. The pub’s Beer Vaults has 15 craft beer lines – pouring an interesting range of specialist craft beers from local and international brewers. Plus The Vaults has eight hand pulls – serving fresh pints of real ale.

Pub classics and bar snacks are complemented by The Vaults’ pizza menu. The pub’s pizza oven is in centre stage on the first floor – where diners can enjoy table service while they watch their pizzas being prepared and cooked in the open kitchen. There are plenty of vegetarian and plant-based options available across both menus.

General Manager, James Wilson, said: “I am really excited about reopening The Vaults. Where we’re located – Southsea’s Albert Road – attracts an eclectic mix of people and I’m confident that we’re able to suit all needs. We will be serving a wide range of cocktails – from your more traditional mixes to increasingly adventurous tipples. Plus our Beer Vaults has a great mix of brews – to appeal to all beer drinkers. We’re looking forward to welcoming customers old and new, including theatre attendees – before or after they’ve enjoyed a show at the King’s Theatre across the road. And live music will take place every Thursday night.

“We have plenty of bookable spaces – so we can cater for any function. I’m excited to also be launching our pizza party buffet – perfect for larger groups looking for something a bit different.”
