Owner description: The Vaults is a very unique experience unlike any other in Wiltshire. Set in the heart of Devizes this grade 2 listed building is full of character, ambience and atmosphere. This is the place to try if you like to experience new flavours and have your boundaries well and truly pushed by our helpful and knowledgeable staff. A bank of 5 cask ale handpumps greets you when you enter and with no fixed range, each time you visit you'll find something new. In addition there are 3 traditional ciders and over 100 different bottled beers and ciders from all over the world. You'll find a beautifully designed menu that lists all the bottles and the most delicious locally sourced pies. Tasting is the name of the game here. Most popular are the Beer Paddles where you can buy 3 x third of a pint of the ales or the ciders at the regular price of a pint. There are no rules that you have to buy one drink per person, you're encouraged to buy bottles and have tasting glasses to share. All the furniture and decor throughout has been designed and built by a local artist using recycled and scrap timber and metal and adds a touch of quirkiness to the venue.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

I've visited here 3 or 4 times now, whilst boat hunting on the K&A canal. Wonderful and ever-changing array of real ales and ciders plus the famous pies . We have now bought a narrowboat and have craftily based it for 6 months at Devizes marina (the older, top one) as The Vaults is a nice 30 minutes, dog-walking stroll from the marina. Very impressed by the local beers and the helpful hosts. The change to the new pies is great - more filling less pastry. Very impressed too by the range of bottled beers (Arbor - my favourite!) and nothing too expensive. Shall be visiting again over the next few days (and months before moving on). Cheers

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Regularly visit the vaults with friends, it is a truly unique and fabulous place wth a fantastic selection of beers and ciders.
Drinks are very reasonable and theres the option to take away bottles if you fancy a treat at home.
The staff are always welcoming and always have a recommendation to satisfy your taste or mood.
The bar snacks are another amazing surprise, tasty, no fuss, interesting and very reasonably priced.
The only minor point are that it can get very stuffy if its busy - not a huge amount they can do mind you.

Would highly recommend a visit. We will continue to regularly visit and look forward to seeing the new, interesting and variety of drinks next time :)

Great choice of beer and cider. Good to be able to try the beers on a paddle. Fabulous scotch eggs and pies, the way all pubs should be!
Definitely recommend it. Super!

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

I heard about this place from word of mouth from locals in Devizes. I took my boyfriend who is a real ale drinker and we were both really surprised by the choice. There is usually a good choice of beer on tap as well as a large range of bottled beer. The Vaults champions local as well as guest beers. The staff in there are very nice as well as knowledgeable about their stock. The Vaults also do food including pies which I am looking forward to trying in our future visits.
