The Vault, a new restaurant at the Dronfield Arms, opened last week with a Michelin-trained chef at the helm. Dronfield-born Paul Widdowson cut his teeth at the Michelin starred Dukes Hotel in London’s St. James Place and The Oak Room, Piccadilly, before working all over the country in various Michelin-starred and rosette establishments.
He’s come back to his roots to have a family and make his mark locally. His goal is to provide “delicious and innovative food without pretension or formality”. The Vault is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
