Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
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.

Worms can't describe this wonderful place. Go there and find out what everyone that hasn't been there are missing. Don't be shy start with a paddle while you study the beer menu. Can't wait to go back. Fantastic.

Ok pub but a little cramped for my liking and the tour downstairs was a little disappointing but good for them for trying something new. And I hope they make it a little better. May try again on a different day

We visited this place after the Wadworth brewery tour

Unsurprisingly Wadworth has a monopoly in the towns pubs so it is essential that you see the other side of the coin

And this is a prime example of pubs doing it right

It has a fantastic range of beers which can be served in a third and half or a pint glass these an be transported via a 'paddle which has holes so the glasses sit in

All the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and even allowed us to see their cellar

We intended to have a couple of drinks here however we ended up staying here most of the day

Note it is only open until 9pm so make sure you go here first

We have been meaning to visit since they opened but never found the time until now. This place is fantastic. Friendly knowledgable staff, 5 draught beers, 1 draught cider and 2 Freedom lagers along with 132 bottles beers all at sensible prices. Can't fault it. Will be back, they just need to sort the buses out so we can stay longer!

Not before time, a welcome change from the Wadworths cartel in town. If only there were more welcoming pubs like this selling brilliant beers (British Lion excepted), then the town centre would be transformed. Buy a bigger premises - you'd make a killing as there is obviously a market for discerning drinkers who want more choice as to where to spend their hard earned pennies. Les and the lads behind the bar are doing a great job - keep supporting them!!
