The business was started in 2012 by brothers, Darren and Adrian Shield. From relatively humble beginnings as a wine shop, the bar was added as a sampling and serving area and Vesuvio evolved into a wine bar as well as wine shop.
We have served food in various styles over the years, and in its present incarnation, Food@Vesuvio, Chef brothers Nathan and Jacob Pattison prepare and serve really fabulous dishes.
We hold wine tastings and events at least once a month, usually on Sundays afternoons. You'll find information on the Events page and on the 'Vesuvio News' notice board in the shop.
We offer live music from our resident duo, Somethin' Blue, in the bar each Sunday from 5-7pm. These guys are great, and have a well earned reputation and following!
On Thursday nights 630-830 we offer live music from
'Les DeVilles', featuring the amazing vocal range of Emily Whitfield, and hugely talented guitar accompaniment from Stefan Coates.
Our business is about making quality wines, gins and beers accessible to everyone, and providing our customers with a relaxed and friendly environment in which to enjoy and indulge.
