Magda who served us was a great waitress, very friendly yet professional & helpful. The food was lovely & we didn't have to wait ages. The only small gripe is the table for 4 was very small so we didn't have a lot of table space. A couple of recommendations would be to have a cocktail menu as I think this would do well & the music selection of indie/rock didnt suit the environment so something softer & more soulful/ambient would have created a perfect atmosphere!

The Victoria is my local pub and has recently been refurbished to an excellent standard, but it's the food and service that really set this place apart from others. The recent change of kitchen staff means the food is fantastic and better than ever before: sensitively handled ingredients that are really fresh with great flavour. The bar and restaurant staff are extremely helpful and friendly which make it a lovely dining experience. Only a couple of niggles: the food has gone up in price and understandably it can be quite noisy as the bar gets busy. Bear that all in mind and you'll have a wonderful evening!

Good food but small portions - don't come hungry. Excellent service - would have tipped more if it wasn't already added - a practice which is becoming more and more common but still irritates me. Let me decide how happy I am please. A bit cross to be charged in full for chips as an extra when we asked for chips instead of boiled potatoes. Overall, would visit again but not with hungry young adults.

This was our third time eating in the dining room since the refurbishment. Whilst the new layout is great, and the food is delicious, on each occasion there has been an issue with service. Most recently, it took a while to get someone's attention to show us to our table. It was then another 5 minutes before we were given menus. At the end of the evening, we had to ask twice for our bill. On previous occasions, a menu misprint caused us to ask for further details on an item, and that was given grudgingly.
I love this pub dearly, but so far I have been disappointed by the level of service in the dining area. It is unlikely that this will put me off visiting the bar, but given the ever-increasing amounts of restaurants springing up nearby, I will probably consider several other options before returning here to eat.

Starters are good quality but quite pricey. Mains were lovely but definitely over-priced for the portion size.
Staff a bit scatty and forgetful - I preferred when we ordered at the bar, the new system is a bit over-complicated.

This is my first visit since the recent refurbishment and it feels very different in terms of ambience and vibe. Myself and a chum visited on a Saturday lunchtime. It was heaving when we arrived but fortunately we had booked a table. I was impressed with the diversity of customers - from elderly to younger couples, to the yummy mummy and daddy brigade, to groups of 30-something friends, they have captured a wide market. The food was nice, but the service was even better. The downside was that by 3.45 the place was emptying out fast and nobody was coming in off the street. By 4.00pm we were almost the last to leave. It is very much a gastro-pub, more gastro than pub to be honest; a place to "have a meal" but not a snack (the Saturday lunch menu was geared to conventional starters, mains and desserts) so no sharing plates or sandwiches that I could see. As a result, it does feel ever so slightly "curated" and a tad soulless, though to be fair it did need a make-over as it had gone a bit downhill of late. It may be a bit more informal in the evenings and I would definitely go back.

Well done the Vic for being open on Monday 2nd January, and not being frazzled either! This wasn't their normal menu (because of the Christmas break) so the choice wasn't as varied as usual, but we had a surprisingly nice salad, and the not-on-a-diet people had a massive pie. Quote "it was a nice pie with a very creamy sauce" (I don't think anyone is going to win prizes for food writing here ). ANYWAY, lovely venue - the restaurant is so much nicer post-refit, and the service is super-friendly. Thanks!

Really enjoyed our Sunday lunch at The Victoria Inn. The food is a good standard and the service really excellent - efficient and friendly. The only small complaint I would have is that the kids dessert choice could be wider and that the one tiny scoop of ice cream they received was a bit measly! In fact, on the website it says all kids meals served with "a pot of Jude's ice cream" which it wasn't! But this wouldn't put me off returning - we have always enjoyed visiting the Victoria Inn and even more so since the revamp. It was a great experience and we will be back.

Thanks to the Victoria for a lovely meal! We booked on Hallowe'en evening and the bar manager kindly let us have the private dining room for free as we were 3 kids and 4 adults - meaning the kids could roam around without putting off the usual punters! Food was really lovely - fish and chips for the kids, steak and bone marrow + baked crab for grown ups - yum! Scoop of ice cream included with kids tea, which was appreciated too. Even though we were in the private room and so away from the usual thoroughfare, the service was exceptional, staff were friendly and really attentive. Thanks!

Food great. Obviously a lot of potential at a quieter time, but clearly very popular for Sunday lunch and therefore service lacking as restaurant was very busy. Could tell waiting staff were doing their best but clearly struggling with how busy it was. Dessert order was mixed up twice!

Ambience not good because we struggled to hear one another over the noise of the bar and music. Acoustics need attention.

I would recommend at a quieter time.

Generally good but disappointing limited menu choice due to a cancelled delivery. Always a nice atmosphere. Would be better to bring the condiments to the table in bottles rather than little pots. Burger was a little tasteless, cheese could have been stronger. A little overpriced for what you get.

We booked a table at 4.45pm ok a Sunday to be told that food stopped being served at 5pm. So we had to rush pick a main and didn’t get the option to choose a starter or pudding . Apart from that staff are lovely and wine good. Food a little hit and miss

Great neighbourhood gastro pub with a menu much better than you would expect from a pub. The food is of good quality (almost very good) and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. It's trying to find its feet but doing well. Service became much more attentive with time. Overall it ended up a good experience and all had a good night out.

We booked the Victoria for a Sunday evening meal with my family. However we didn't stay as the band tht were playing, while great to see, made it too noisy for the older members of the group.
Also, the vegetarian menu hasn't changed since the pub's overhaul last autumn. I've asked about this several times and been told the chef is working on it - but it never materialises... This is really disappointing for a place that used to have several veggie options :(

Staff were very friendly and helpful but we balked a bit at the prices on the menu. When it arrived we also felt the quality of food didn't justify the high prices - £13 for a decent but unspectacular burger is a tad on the steep side... All in all, a nice meal but not memorable.

This is our local and we love it, but, they need to improve their service if they are going to get repeat business. Great tasting food just took way to long to arrive and then there were a few things wrong.
It won't be hard to get it right but they must do it fast!

We went for Sunday lunch and were really disappointed. Given the roasts were priced at £17, we were expecting a lot more than was delivered. Focus was all on style rather than substance. Tiny portion, lacked seasoning, Watery gravy and more fat than meat on my beef. Left feeling hungry, not what you expect after Sunday lunch!

Staff were friendly when they appeared but inattentive.

Won't be going back.

As part of my husbands birthday celebration we went to Victoria Inn for a Sunday Roast. Been there before and it was fantastic. Oddly (being it was only 18.30) there were no roasts to be had. The menu didn't accommodate for this - so there was a really limited choice. Service (and apologies) were lovely as was the oatmeal pale ale. Live music and lovely atmosphere. Sunday just isn't Sunday without Yorkshire, gravy and roasties! This is a great venue but I think they need to make their mind up about the offer on a Sunday. !8.30 is not late for dinner!

I booked a table for brunch at 11:30am, based on the website stating that brunch is served until 12:00am.

When we arrived we were told that brunch finishes at 11 and lunch doesn't start until 12.

We were given menus then completely ignored, needing to go to the bar to order and every time we needed something (it is meant to be table service).

Even the chef was getting stressed at how long the waiting staff took to collect the food to serve, he was having to shout service 3/4 times before any of the staff made themselves available.

The food was OK but the overall service really ruined the experience.
