Vinyl Restaurant And Cafe

Vinyl restaurant and cafe has been open just over one month now and is located in Washington Village. Vinyl used to be known as Cellini's and has been taking over by a family (mother and son) and what a transformation they have made. The owners have revamped the building into a retro themed restaurant with crockery made of re-purpose records aswell as LP's used for flooring and decor (even in the toilets). My favourite part of the restaurant is the room upstairs where you can see the original features of the building e.g the wooden beams. Of course the LP's really do give the place that very unique look and there is nothing like Vinyl in Washington Village.

Since Vinyl has opened, I have been a number of times for breakfast, lunch and EVEN a takeout. YES takeout, my boyfriend was very surprised when I suggested getting a takeout from Vinyl as not many people are aware this is available. We ended up ordering a Carnivore and Bolognese pizza with a side of chips. We went to collect the takeout and it was ready within 10 minutes. It was DELICIOUS and a much better opinion than ordering from a local takeaway or even Dominos for SUREEEEEE!! Actually it was definitely the warmest takeaway pizza I've had in a long time and didn't make me feel all greasy (you know the feeling).

Now back to the restaurant, the downstairs part is a very relaxed set up where I enjoy sitting having breakfast. The breakfast menu is very reasonable and everything is under £6.25. My personal favourites are the Fried Hash with Sausage or the Eggs Benedict. The eggs are always cooked to perfection, I'm such an egg lover so I'm very hard to please when it comes to eggs. 

I have sat in the upstairs part of the restaurant for lunch and as mentioned before I adore how the owners have kept the original features of the building, it really given the room some character. Myself and my friends browsed the menu and decided to share the 'Antipasto Board' and 'Garlic Flatbread'. The antipasto board entailed of Italian meats, mozzarella, goats cheese, pickles and toasted breads. We shared this between 5 of us and it was a perfect amount for something light and YUM to get our taste buds going for our mains. 

For main I went for the Margerita pizza with some extra goat cheese...can we take moment for the pizza cutter....HOW COOL! One of my friends went for the Carbonara pasta (see the picture) and if I'm honest, I can't remember and didn't take photos of my other friends food but I do remember that there wasn't even a crumb left on everyone's plate. One of my friends even said "I could eat that all over again!". Can't get any better than that can you? 

The serves at Vinyl has always been very friendly, attentive and helpful. The food is always delicious, the portions size is generous and it is very good value for money. I am yet to try the restaurant on an evening but if the serve during the day is anything to go by, I'm sure it will be just as enjoyable. I think the next time I visit, I will try and order something other than pizza. The PIZZAS are just so dam GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!

As I am writing this blog post, Vinyl have just uploaded a picture onto their Facebook of a very famous picture of the Beatles walking on the zebra crossing. The picture has been hand painted on one of their walls in the restaurant and I've got to looks FAB! If these pizza/breakfast pictures don't excite you, maybe the art work or homemade cakes will? 

Vinyl is very close to 'The Green' which I have also reviewed on my blog. Click HERE to read. 

Hope you've enjoyed reading all about Vinyl.

lots of love
