Vaquero Dining

Chic but cosy Spanish dining and drinks.

BOOK A TABLE

You don't have to fall down a rabbit hole or stumble across a secret garden to find Vaquero Dining — but you do need to do the next best thing. Just look for The Albion Butchery on Sandgate Road, walk past an array of displayed, cured meat (and maybe think about taking some home to eat), and then prepare for a stashed-away restaurant and bar to materialise.

That's the first fun part. The second stems from everything you'll consume while you're there, obviously. If devouring Spanish-influenced dishes, and drinking wine and cocktails in cosy yet chic decor — complete a back-lit bar, intimate dining room and airy al fresco area — sounds like your kind of thing, then this is the place for you.

Food-wise, that includes sliced-to-order, meat-stacked charcuterie boards, plus hand-stretched pizzas, duck liver parfait and plenty of options cooked up in the charcoal oven — and a cute meringue snowman for dessert, too. And as for tasty, tasty beverages, expect to choose from more than 80 wines as well as pre-batch cocktails served in jugs, such as old faves like old fashioneds and negronis.
