    I have closed the old Market Vaults thread, and created this new one, as it is an entirely new venture. :)

    Thanks to everyone who has posted information gleaned from elsewhere; I'll repost it here for convenience (click for full size):

    As with any new venture in Stafford, I wish them all the best! :)

    Top news! The new management have asked if I will continue the Thursday night open mic & I have gladly agreed. First one tonight, so come on down & bring your guitar/ukulele/accordion/sousaphone & give us a tune :)

    Will they retain the music policy of the Vaults?

    By that I mean the style of bands / performers that have played there over the years?

    I sincierly hope so as it gives what makes the Vaults its mass appeal.

    Existing bookings are being honoured, so you should see things carry on as-is for the rest of the year. After that the new management may (or may not) wish to put their own stamp on things.

    Tried the "the don't you know I'm Loco" on Saturday.

    Have to say it wasn't all that bad. a bit low on the fries portion but generally ok. The slaw I think has paprika in it and really tastey (against my better judgment) the friends I was with had the chilli cheese fries, and the Chicken with attitude.

    Chilli cheese fries, tastey, but heavy on the corriander and with a brucetta style salsa layered on top. A little lacking on the chilli too...could do with a bit more to make it a satisfying meal.

    As far as I am aware the CWA was ok.

    So far so good, they have some massive boots to fill, but generally OK so far. Looking forward to working my way through the menu.

    I don’t think it’s fair to call ‘it’ a ‘battle’.

    I thought that a particular advertisement wasn’t accurate. I made a statement that drew a line in the sand. New management replied and clarified the situation. Amicable. Job done.

    This was the chilli and cheese fries:
    [​IMG]

    As you can see very different to before. Don't get me wrong, it was tasty, but a very different meal. The chilli was much dryer and less of it, a very different recipe to before. I felt more focus was on the salsa style addition to the top, personally I preferred the old style as every chip was covered in chilli whereas I ended up with some dry chips left with this one.

    Each to there own, I'm certainly not ruling out a revisit but be aware it is not the same food.
