We have visited The Victoria several times and the food has always been spectacular. The menu often retains a few favourites and changes some dishes every now and again keeping the menu fresh. It's has a lovely atmosphere and a great outdoors area. It offers a fantastic selection of wines, ales and ciders. You're bound to find a perfect match... More

Went to the Vic on the spur of the moment and every seat was taken except two in the corridor. The Vic is known for good food and a wide selection of real ales, ciders and perry. We had a Cornish Blush Cider and a Perry, well we had two pints each, too good to settle for less. Stuck with... More

Quality proper boozer. No frills but well informed very helpful staff with good choice of drinks. Loved the 3 beer sampler and nice touch on the gins ordered by the ladies. Friendly atmosphere too, older clientele when we were there, which suits us fine being middle aged now! My new local...happy days

Book in advance as they get really busy. Friendly service, really good food and very reasonably priced. We went as a large party of 14 and sat upstairs. Food came out quickly, very hot and great Yorkshire puddings. The choice of ales and ciders is epic and flexible chefs to accommodate vegans. Would definitely go again.

The Victoria has a great atmosphere, old fashioned feel, roaring log fire - lots to like. The problem was the food. The range was OK but both our meals were pretty ordinary and appeared alarmingly quickly after we'd ordered them. The vegetables were overcooked and the mains (bangers and mash; vegetarian option) were both disappointing.

We just popped in for an early dinner and the Vic didn't disappoint. The menu never changes much but this doesn't matter. It is quite broad with classic pub meals but also excellent veggie choices. Choices such as a platter of charcuterie and cheese, risotto and a curry add to the range. Basically you can keep coming back and can... More

The food here is so good! I live 5 minutes away and it's a hidden gem. They do a good beer selection too.

One of the many benefits of the youngest son moving out is that he now finds this superb pub on his new doorstep. It's rapidly becoming the place we meet in his neighbourhood. Excellent service , remarkable range of beers previously unknown to me and his Mum was impressed at the range quality and value of the wines on offer.... More
