With effect from 16th October Vats will have new owners

After over 30 years of running Vats. we have decided to relocate to the country which is very exciting but tinged with a certain amount of sadness. There have been great times, late nights ... early mornings but always huge fun !

The Bar will be closed for refurbishment from the end of this week and will re-open at the beginning of November, exact date to be announced.

The new owners are Mark Andrew & Dan Keeling who have decided to rename Vats :

                                                             ‘Noble Rot’

The Restaurant and Wine Bar will serve English & French dishes, overseen by the Michelin starred Stephen Harris of ‘The Sportsman’ in Kent, who will be bringing with him his Head Chef Paul Weaver.

Mark & Dan tell us that Noble Rot’s wines will range from the good, ordinary easy drinking wines, to some of the World’s most sought after Domaines.

The intention is to preserve a lot of the old ‘Vats’ traditional approach and atmosphere so we hope that when you enter ‘Noble Rot’ you will feel something of us is still here.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our 30 years at Vats and we will sorely miss the banter with our many loyal customers.

We leave you with our very best wishes and gratitude for the many years of loyal custom and friendship.

David & Carry Allcorn
