Looking for something to do this bank holiday weekend then why not try an evening out in Wrexham?

As the weather has been not too bad by British standards we decided to go for early doors with pre- dinner drinks and some fabulous food.

For pre-dinner drinks we thought we would try the recently opened Vault 33 .

Even though it was early evening there was a nice buzz in the bar and we received a warm welcome.

We managed to grab a table in the window so we could watch the world go by.

My partner enjoyed a pint of Wrexham lager while I had a glass of sauvignon blanc.

‘Vault 33’ located at 33 High Street, Wrexham, opened last month.

Swapping the pitch for the pints, the bar is owned by sportsman and former Wrexham captain Neil Roberts who is taking on the hospitality business for the very first time.

Speaking to the Leader previously about the opening Neil said: “We at Vault 33 have dreamt about this moment for a long time now and it’s fair to say that it’s not been plain sailing but thankfully we each have been blessed with the most amazing families and friends around us to support without whom we couldn’t be at this point today.

“Our focus has always been to offer a unique, safe and welcoming environment by ensuring that our service, presentation and quality levels are of the highest standard possible.”

I have to say I was impressed with the bar and could see it as I place I could happily go to with friends for a catch up and a great night out. The music was not deafening and the staff were super friendly. We even got a 'lovely to meet you' from one of the door staff as we were leaving!

For food we had managed to book a table at The Bank for tapas, so we did not have to walk too far!

It was a good job we had booked as there was not an empty table in the place which is great to see.

That led to a fantastic atmosphere and did not phase the staff who exchanged good banter and were attentive with food and drink orders.

We decided to choose six small plates to share.

Wow! The food was amazing. We opted for baked brie with pretzel, lamb lollipops, brisket tacos, Teryaki salmon, masala beans and of course chips!

The baked brie was everything it should be, gooey and unctuous with the pretzel being a good way of mopping up all the tasty cheese.

The lamb lollipops were more than lollipops they were full on cutlets, so juicy with a pea, mint and honey dip.

Then the brisket tacos, I have to say were my favourite with pineapple pico salsa and Tequila onion.

The masala beans were a meal in themselves as they were mixed with Feta and coriander and served on top of sourdough bread. The salmon had all the oriental flavours you would expect from Teryaki, ginger and sesame with seaweed and carrot.

Wrexham has plenty more pubs and bars to choose from and the food offering in the city has greatly improved. I don't think it will be long before we head back.
