Excellent ambiance at the Victoria, we have been quite a few times now with friends and various members of our family and they have all wanted to go back again. We would like to thank Megan for looking after us on our last visit, she is a very efficient member of your staff.

I thought after they had refurbished it a few weeks ago, they would have put a new menu in or at least improved and added more daily specials.

When we arrived it was clear that opentable doesnt work as the vic had no booking for us.

We had to wait until 21:00 for a table booked at 20:15 and was stood for all that time and we did not start to eat until 21:00.

The table was down stairs despite making a booking for easy disabled access.

Just one disappointment - one of the four starters was cold (not ideal for something with melted cheese!), but everything else was excellent. We had a very good table, easy to converse although restaurant was very busy. Bar service and restaurant service excellent.

Three of us ate here for a get together. I recommended it because I had eaten here once before with friends and it was very pleasant - it is also local to two of our party. Unfortunately when we arrived the place was packed (seemed almost overflowing with tables) with festive/birthday groups (Dec). This is fine and adds to the atmosphere but the staff was under a lot of pressure. It took at least 10 minutes after being seated for anyone to take a drinks order and then we waited quite a long time for them to be delivered and the food order to be taken. They offered, along with the usual (very varied) menu, a specials choice and also the festive menu which, on the face of it, seemed fantastic but in reality meant the kitchen couldn't cope with such diversity on what was an extremely busy night. We ordered starters which arrived in a reasonable time but our main course (from the standard menu) took over an hour to get to us, which is totally unacceptable. The waitress came and apologised and offered a bottle of proscecco (which we declined because of driving) and told us the meals were being plated up, but we then waited at least another 10 minutes for them to arrive. Mine was hot but one of the party had luke warm fish cakes (which also seemed to have very little fish in - they tasted more like potato cakes when I tried some) which were standing on a very dried up pea puree. I think maybe when you are offering an additional menu on top of the usual you need to greatly reduce what is on offer to be able to cope with demand. We didn't complain as the waitress was obviously embarrassed, we just paid up and left and felt disappointed that a lovely get together was a bit tarnished by the experience in the restaurant.

Food was great. I was a little disappointed that the menu is the same as the barnt green inn but there were plenty of specials on offer. I had the venison which was cooked perfectly. Staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We will be going back.

Unfortunately when I arrived the restaurant did not have any record of my booking with OpenTable. They had a booking for someone with a very similar name to me for a time later and for for 4 people rather than 2 which we thought was strange. They managed to accommodate us but told us they would need the table back within an hour (which wasn't great as this was a catch up with a friend so didn't really want to be rushed). They rushed us through our starter (telling us our mains were ready when we were still on our starter). They didn't actually end up moving us after all the rush which was a bit strange - but maybe there was a confusion with the booking and that other booking under an extremely similar name never turned up.
Other than that, the food was good.

The pub is clean and friendly and the food was well presented and very enjoyable. We were sitting right in the bar which was quite load and felt crowded, but apart from that was a very enjoyable evening. Definitely would go again.
