Gastro Pub
Set in a leafy residential area close to Richmond Park, The Victoria is a traditional public house and restaurant with a modern edge. Leading off from the cosy but spacious bar, The Victoria’s dining room is located in a bright and airy conservatory-style extension which overlooks a beautifully tended garden. During the day sunlight floods in, even on the darkest of days, while evening guests can dine with the stars as they twinkle over the beautiful candlelit room. With a varied and eclectic menu, The Victoria really does offer something for everyone with the best of British combining with touches of summery Mediterranean flavour, just a sprinkling of experimentation and all the skill of chef Paul Merrett and his team.

The staff were great- very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere in the conservatory is a little sterile, although the outlook on the garden is nice. Two of us had vegan burgers. One was OK but the other, which was different - pinker, different texture and fatter, did not taste nice at all. But the location is wonderful with the park so nearby - so that's a plus.

The food was delish and the menus were single use which is great in terms of them being COVID safe. Good service too - the food didn’t take too long to come

We ate in The Victoria's garden as two families to celebrate a birthday. The service was great as was the setting. I particularly recommend the smoked salmon plate and the steak with Bearnaise sauce. The kids with us also seemed to enjoy it!

We had a really lovely Sunday lunch at the Victoria. We were in the garden which I’ve never been in before. We had a nice large table at the back. The tables were well spaced for social distancing. It was full but not noisy at all. Our waitress was really nice and we went with her recommendations. Food was lovely as always. Great cocktails and wine too. A great lunch out. Would defo recommend.

Loved the way the Victoria is managing COVID. Ticking the menu against the food options was very efficient to limit waiter interaction but menu and food great. Veggie curry was a winner and the prawn salad great too. Good atmosphere.

A very good meal at the Victoria - well organised to cope with Covid, staff friendly and relaxed.

The only negative was my steak - it was perfectly cooked but 8oz?? I have to say I was a bit sceptical - don't remember ever being served such a small sirloin

Other than that, a very pleasant evening at a very fair price and a place we will certainly return to

The conservatory is really nice but the middle room is dull and lifeless. Currently running a slightly odd system of social distancing with the menu and having to write on it to put forward your order.
Overall not a fantastic experience and at times like this the experience is very important

We had a fantastic dinner at The Victoria. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the menu was varied and creative, the food was delicious and well-presented, and the cocktails were fantastic.

We ate in a beautiful conservatory filled with light and with plenty of space, and there was also the option to be seated in the garden, under cover of large parasols and foliage, and with heaters in case the temperature dropped.

All in all we had a wonderful meal here and will definitely return in the near future.
