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.

    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

    One of two pubs in Upper Swindon owned by the same people that are a few doors apart (the other being The Little Hop). This is the larger of the two pubs so has a bigger range of excellent food and drink. The barman was friendly and very knowledgeable about ale. We didn’t know there was a decent real ale pub in Swindon let alone two just yards from each other. Definitely worth a visit.

    Hop Kettle brewery started off in Cricklade and are slowly building a great fan base. This outlet is a super place to try their beers which are very tasty and very reasonably priced too !

    Nice pub, friendly staff and a good selection of drinks. It has a large beer garden, also a dart board and pool table in the main bar. Live music (no cover bands) is played here. Fancy a pint then this is the place.

    Fantastic gem of a pub. Stumbled upon this place on a Sunday morning looking for a coffee whilst our son was football training. The landlady was watering the hanging baskets out the front and I asked if she knew where we could get a coffee. She said if you come in I’ll make you one! So we sat in the marquee out the back and she bought us out 2 fresh coffees - such a nice gesture! Pub looks great for Sunday lunch we are definitely coming back and bringing the family.

    Excellent young staff, Amy in particular is very hard working and deserves praise for her great customer service. Visited the Spotted Cow for the first time in many years and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and low prices on the substantial menu , bravo to all concerned ! .
