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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our friend had his 50th Birthday Party in the vaults last night and what an amazing night it was. Anne and Claire that own the vaults now gave us all a fantastic evening. Buffet was excellent and Anne made a Birthday Cake especially for him...which is just the how they go the extra mile to make your evening special. Well done girlsMore

Just back from from the vaults after having lunch. I had the steak pie and my mother had the pork that was on the specials board, both were lovely. I don’t often have steak pie when out as can be a bit of hit or...a miss but this was lovely. The pork also looked fantastic. Will be back for sure 😊More

Stayed in Montrose for 2 days and wandered the length and breadth of the town and tried all the pubs. There seems to be a local law against clear windows in pubs so most bars are small, dark and faceless (what American's would call "dive...bars"). Northern Vaults was by far the best pub in town on all counts. It was larger than most, with a more airy feel and light from the back garden. The staff were incredibly friendly, and there was good music playing and plenty of space to sit or stand at the bar. The fact they do home cooked food just seals the deal - the food was all freshly cooked and tasted fantastic, with a good selection of dishes. I'm only sorry I ate at the Picture House (Wetherspoons clone) for variety, as a second meal here would be great!More
