“Best summer beer garden in Lincoln”
Review of The Victoria

The Victoria
Ranked #141 of 526 Restaurants in Lincoln
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Reliably the same as it's been for years. The beer is always well-kept, with traditional bitters - Batemans's XB and Taylor's Landlord, and guest beers of the modern "golden" variety. Good lagers. Outside of lunch hours (12-2:30ish), good filled rolls and pork pies very reasonably priced. One long bar, sometimes hard to squeeze through and another snug bar. Outside in good weather, the view of the Castle is superb. Popular with families on sunny weekend afternoons. The only bad aspect is the threadbare and stained seating. Bar staff are young and friendly.

We did not eat at this old pub, as they only did lunches. We visited late afternoon, I was really impressed with the selection of cask ales. The barmen were very attentive and helpfull

The Victoria was a pub we used to frequent in the mid90s - it was good then and remains so. It is quite traditional with a long public bar and a snug. Lots of outdoor seating. The range of cask ale is good and the staff friendly and knowledgeable.

It's a nice place but really could do with a paint and updating. Good selection of beers. And friendly staff.

Cracking beers that are changed regularly, friendly staff, nice big beer garden, and next door to a castle! There's a discount for Camra members, the Lincoln Steampunk Society meet here every Wednesday, there's a regular quiz night, and live music at weekends. It's also got a small function room you can hire as well.
