Although this isn't on the official Mofest venues it is a must visit pub for the best beer, best food and best music. I recommend the curry. I also recommend dancing all night to the house band. They were amazing. If you visit one pub in Montrose, make it this one. And not just cause the manager said to say... More

My father-in-law likes to eat at the Northern Vaults so we usually take him there when we visit and can honestly say we have only ever had good meals in all the years we’ve done so. Sad to see an old favourite (chicken fajita) is no longer on the menu, but there are plenty of other good things to choose... More

First time having food in the Northern Vaults. Food was delicious and will definitely be back. Good choice of vegetarian food also and prices were good value for money.

We went along to see KJB play and had a meal while there. The atmosphere was great and the band was top class. The steak pie was really very good and we had a great night. Only downside was when we reserved our table in advance we were not told that under 18's we not allowed in there after 9pm... More

The vaults (as us locals call it) is a fantastic bar that does brilliant food too! Would always advise going once because you'll definitely go again for the food, best pub food I've ever had and they aren't stingy with the portion size either! Bar staff are happy and friendly too! They also have a pool table if you fancy... More

2 main meals with soft drinks = £16. I still can't get over the quality of service, food and portion size for that price. Staff very attentive & welcoming. Good honest food, full of flavour and a wide range with a specials board. A little unknown gem of a place. Glad we found it 😊

We had food here and prosecco. We also had a wee dog with us as we were visiting Montrose for the day. Nowhere else would let us in with the dog (get up with the times Montrose! ) but this wee place did. Very friendly. Lady with the darker shoulder length hair was lovely. Nothing was too much trouble.

Popped in for lunch with my daughter, service was excellent as usual, I like to come in at the weekend to try the specials on offer.....wasn't disappointed, the strawberry crepes we had for dessert were heaven on a plate, I would definitely recommend it 🤗
