At The Vale Bar & Eatery we are purveyors of all things scrumptious and as such are home to a large selection of food and drink. Picture mouth watering cocktails and wine stacked wall to wall that has been sourced from near and far. Beer and cider so good that you will dream of becoming a brewer and a selection of pizza, cheese and charcuterie so moorish you wont be able to stop at just one!

I love this place! I recommend it to anyone. However it can get noisy if there is a lot of people around. However this adds to the vibe :-)

Great local with fab food and wine choice. The interior is a little noisy and the service could have been better. It took 25 minutes from the minute we sat down to be asked for a drink order. They also cleared glasses without asking if we wanted to order more. Food was a little slow as well. In fairness, it was a busy night. Would go back and give the service another go.

Otherwise ambience was good

Have been keen to eat here and the food didn't disappoint. Great taste and good portion sizes. The Arancini balls were very special, as was the calamari and sweet potato chips! Love the variety of drinks on offer as well. Fabulous service and very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere in which to eat and socialise. Looking forward to going back again !

I love the Vale and its a welcome addition to Union Road. Saturday night was extremely busy so there was a little bit of a wait on service and drinks. Other than that , it was great as usual

Love this place but it’s consistently understaffed and noise level too high. Add some sound deadening materials please.

If you’re looking for a new neighbourhood bar, The Vale is unequivocally it. Uncomplicated delicious food.
A relaxed, yet energetic vibe.
The service is sharp; the cocktails sexy.
You should go.
