This is a deeply impressive micropub,and I endorse completely the two very positive reviews below.This is a must visit in Devizes,the best real ale venue in town and perfectly run by two engaging people.Visit and enjoy,my two pints of Arbor Summit IPA were outstanding,I will most certainly return.

The Vaults is in the middle of town and feels more traditionally pub like than many micros.
The welcome here was especially friendly as was the atmosphere with plenty of chat between customers. The staff are also very knowledgeable about their ale and are very happy to chat about styles, brewers and their locations and anything else beer related as well as offering samples willingly. This alone makes it a great place for a beer.
Added to that is a very well chosen and largely local beer selection which on our visit included Kennet & Avon Bruce and Deep Lock, a mega IPA at 10.5%, Arbor Summit IPA at 6.5%, Artisan Mosaic, Lytham Berry Blonde, which as advised did actually taste of Jammy Dodgers and a cider. Everything that we tried was excellent and in good condition and it's nice to see that they're not afraid of the odd stronger beer.
It is worth checking the opening times as they closed at 9 pm on our midweek visit but drinking up time was fairly relaxed.
A top end micropub and not to be missed.

This is now one of the older micropubs having opened in 2013. Inside it's a narrow room with the bar in the middle on the right and extending back a long way. Overall it's on the larger size for a micropub. The floor is smooth red bricks and the walls consist of painted bricks. This is a bottle shop as well but not overwhelmingly so as most of this trade is in the cellar. There is tall furniture at the front and some lower seating further back.
Four beers were available from the six hand pumps on my visit Plain Ales Innocence, Kennet & Avon Crofton IPA, Keystone Dark Porter and Purple Moose Snowdonia. I went for the local Crofton IPA (£3.30) which was an excellent pint. They also do cider and a couple of non-mainstream keg beers.
I thought this was another excellent micropub.

A beer drinkers delight. Also I love the lovett pies.
