March Pub of the Month
Lymestone Vaults

Access is via Pepper Street with the pub situated close to the town end near to Chatwins shop. The Lymestone Vaults opened in November 2012; a Lymestone Brewery Tap house it soon became a CAMRA award winning pub, and holds numerous Tourism Awards too.

Of course 6 of the hand pumps on the bar are dedicated to the Lymestone Brewery’s range of exceptionally kept beers, such as Cherry Stone, Ein Stein, Foundation Stone, Stone Cutter, Stone Faced and Stone the Crows on a rotational basis as well as 3 guests ales from across the Region such as Derventio, Springhead and a Lymestone seasonal too.

The bar has an extensive range of traditional still Cider - usually 8 or more, as well as bottled and kegged cider too. The bar holds an extensive range of Gins, Rums and Whiskies with the accompanying fruits, tonics and mixers. The Vaults stocks a sophisticated range of Wines from Whitebridge wines in Stone, and has a wide range of bottled and more recently canned beers too.

The kitchen runs each day providing a menu of locally sourced and hand-made meals from Oatcakes through to fishcakes or the Lymestone Burger and chips! Note: - every Tuesday evening is Oatcake night.

The front half of the building is occupied by an estate agent with the rear of the building forming the Vaults and living accommodation. Once the Wine Vaults, O’Neils and On the Square, there has been a pub on this site for hundreds of years. Lymestone Vaults is owned by Viv and Brad of Lymestone Brewery and is run effectively by a great knowledgeable team led by Harry and Isaac. The Bar area at the ‘Vaults’ as the locals refer to it, is L shaped with a range of seating and tables to suit all. Yes, you can play the piano in the corner (just ask), which is more than an ornament.

Dogs are always welcome with their owners. In the winter months the fire is a big draw, but a warm welcome is given by the staff. The Vaults are pro-active in the community, with putting up the outside bar at the Lymelight Festival, and hosting bands for the Jazz and Blues festival and other events. Occasionally you will see and hear musical acts playing to an intimate audience. Note: - every 1st Sunday of the Month is Jazz night.

Harry, Isaac and all the team welcome you all to the presentation of Potteries CAMRA Pub of the Month of March, on Monday the 2nd of March 2020 at 19:30.
