Alan Winfield left this review about Horse Vaults

The Horse Vaults is situated in the main shopping area.
The outside sign states "fine wines & cask ales" they dont do cask ales.
Once inside there is a decent sized L shaped room to the front,the room is carpeted and has comfy bench seating and small stools,there is a decent sized stage to the front left which has a DJ rig on it.
The bar is to the mid left and there are tall tables and chairs opposite it,the rear area is bare boarded and has bench seating and small tables and stools,there is a separate pool room to the rear right.
No real ales here,the keg option was Mansfield Smooth which was ok.
There were TVs on mute,background music was playing.
Live bands are advertised along with Karaoke.
A lively pub,shame no real ales on.

Lively pub with Sky Sports and snacks on the bar. The fine cask ales proclaimed outside the pub did not exist. Live entertainment some nights.
