Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Spent an afternoon here happily drinking several well kept pints of Landlord. Friendly place with a pool table in a side room. My dog rated the visit particularly highly due to the warm welcome, comfy carpet and the provision of dog biscuits :-)

Excellent local pub mostly populated by a clientele of locals, rather than tourists like me! An unpretentious good “boozer” good beer!

Previously a 5 star review, but they have a big problem with a very vocal racist regular. People are avoiding this potentially great bar because of one very unpleasant and offensive man..they know who he is. Ban him and see the business increase.

During lockdown I’ve had so many fond memories when walking past the pub. The decor. The windows. The seagulls I meet outside trying to have a bite of my Greggs pasty I picked up today. The Vaults looks like a truly glorious boozer and I can’t wait to see inside!!

Some friends and I stumbled upon this gem of a pub whilst visiting Bath. The staff are warm and welcoming as were the locals. We also got to see some great live music in their cellar bar. We had such a great evening. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a pub with character.

I'll tell you one thing for true, I've been in bars from Croyden to Paris to Vegas and everything in-between, and this is by far, and I say it neatly, the best pub in the world. Our bar lady Yasmin was and is an absolute delight, and the young man Nine held pleasant entertainment throughout our short but spectacular stop at 'The Vaults', which I can only presume are the best vaults there ever has been, and the truth of the matter, ever will be.

There is no place that makes me feel more welcome than here. As you walk in on the darkest of days you begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. With the help of some truly amazing people running the gift that is the vaults (especially yas) you truly understand how to let go and just enjoy what will be.i hope this wonderful house shall stay open to welcome generation after generation yet to come as the is well and truly.......
