    Love this place!!!!
    Love this place. This is the 4th time we have been, and it has become our go-to in Swindon. Friendly, well presented staff (who even remember us), and amazing drinks. It's hard to get an 'Old Fashioned' made this well. And thr ladies loved the Daquiri's. Will be back soon. 😁

    30th birthday party
    I booked the Vault for my 30th party and invited around 40 people, which was the ideal amount. Rhiane and the team are fantastic; nothing was too much trouble and they were really on top of everything on the day, which put me at ease. The drinks were fantastic and I was able to provide my own nibbles and cakes. Highly recommended and would definitely book another event here. Thank you.

    My experience was outstanding, friends couldn’t get over the kindness off the three staff, perfect!! 🙌
    Myself & Friends visited the Vault Saturday evening, straight away we fell in love with the place! All three staff were amazing!! Lovely, kind, well mannered, all round friendly! They also had to deal with a difficult situation from a big table during our time there, despite people being rude, they handled this like professionals. The vault team… we’ll see you again soon! x
