Bringing 1920s America to Tunbridge Wells

Say "Hi" to Lauren!

Vale Vault is a premium cocktail and wine bar, with an American theme, based underneath The Bedford Pub.

Specialising in a high-end range of spirits, supplied by Master of Malt in High Brooms & finest wines from the USA and an international selection, supplied by The Secret Cellar in Tunbridge Wells. The bar will also provide some of the best craft beers from several of the largest micro-breweries across America.

We are open to the public on Fridays & Saturdays from 5pm to midnight.  A full table service will be provided for customers. The bar will be available for private hire (Sunday-Thursday), with a maximum of 35 people.

The design is largely tailored toward an industrial theme, with a hint of speakeasy thrown in for good measure! The main entrance is down the alleyway off Vale Road, hence the name, and there will also be a ‘secret’ access door from the bar upstairs!

For information people can follow us on Twitter @ValeVault. A website will be launched in due course.


With effect from 1st April we are no longer taking table reservations. The bar will be open on Friday and Saturdays between 7pm and midnight.

Tables will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

We have taken this decision due to numerous people reserving tables and not turning up! Therefore, we have been turning away people who want to come in and drink, which we're sure you'll agree is not fair!

If you are still looking to hire out the entire venue for a special event, then you can do this by speaking to Lauren or Mark on 01892 578539.

Any bookings made up to 1st April will still be honoured
