RELAXED DINING AND COCKTAILS IN THE HEART OF ALBION

WELCOME

In the early 1500s the Spanish arrived in Mexico, bringing with them horses and livestock and the tradition of the “vaquero”: the horseback mounted cattle herder. Legend has it that they only ever dismounted to dance with a pretty girl. They lived simple, honest, hard working lives.

At Vaquero Dining we take influence from the Spanish origin, celebrating a menu design to be shared with friends and family. Simple, elegant plating, ultimate respect for the food we serve, direct from farm to plate. Our charcoal oven ensures that moisture, tenderness and flavour are the three key elements with every dish.

From farm to plate

Great food is possible with the best ingredients. We work closely with our suppliers and producers to ensure that we support sustainable, organic and socially conscious farming methods. This means every meal prepared by our passionate chefs uses only the best, freshly harvested or reared produce available.
