Frequenty Asked Questions

We have been receiving so many messages asking the same questions that we thought this might help.


Can I book a table?

It is now possible to book via our Green Light Admission which reduces waiting times.


How will I know when to come?

We are fitting a webcam inside the restaurant which will also show the current wait time on tables. This is a tool to help our guests see the time of day that we get the busiest.You can find the webcam on this website during our opening hours.



Do you have a menu we can look at?

We are going to be offering a Southern Style BBQ Menu with highlights such as Beef Brisket and Pulled Pork.  Please see our menu page for details.


Do you cater for Gluten Free Guests?

Yes we do have some items marked on our menu for our Gluten Free Guests to enjoy although please be aware that we do not have a designated Gluten Free Fryer. 


Do you have access for wheelchair users?

Yes we do. Not every table is accessible but we have at least 3 tables that wheelchair users will feel comfortable sitting at and we have excellent disability access to our entrance, fire exits and toilets. The tables with access will obviously be prioritised for those who require them.


I run a car / bike club can we organise a visit?

We would love to have as many petrol heads visit as possible, we built this place for you after all. Please send us a message and try to give us an idea of how many people you think you might be expecting and when and we will make some suggestions. Initially we think that a lot of our car and bike meetings will be held on Saturday and Sunday mornings but we assume that individual clubs will naturally find their own day of the week and time of day once we get over the initial madness of the Grand Opening.  See our Green Light Admission also.


Can I get some High Resolution pictures of V-ATE for my Feature / Blog / Magazine / Newspaper?

Of course, just drop us a message with your email and we will happily send you high resolution pictures via WETRANSFER. All we ask is that you please send us a link once you are published.


Do you have any jobs going?

Yes we do! You can visit our Careers page here...


I am interested in Franchising, is this something you are considering?

At some point in the very near future... YES! Right now we are concentrating on getting open and making the first V-ATE a huge success but we have big plans for our family run business!!


We hope this has answered some of your questions and we really are so overwhelmed by the interest and response to our new venture. We truly believe that this area has so much potential for fledgling businesses and a wealth of talent prepared to work hard and make them a success. We look forward to welcoming you all to V-ATE soon!
