Bucking Fastard left this review about The Victoria

A pleasingly authentic wedged shaped pub,it's tied to Greene King but still worth popping in.The interior is carpeted and open plan although two central chimney breasts hint at an original layout of seperate rooms,and they create a distinction from the bar area to the rear section.The welcome was very friendly,and I was impressed by the effort put in to stage so many different events.There is a regular quiz,accoustic nights,live music and DJ's on Saturdays after 9pm,themed food nights , a daily lunch menu 12-3pm including specials,light bites and pub grub classics.The barn is used for community events such as life drawing.
The front door at the apex of the building leads immediately to the bar,with settles and benches running along the walls,the interior is quite modest and has a cosy feel with back ground muzak and the flatscreen off during my lunchtime visit.
Besides the boring regular ales of GK IPA and Abbott,two guests are served which on my trip were the unexciting Skinners Cornish Knocker and Thwaites Wainwright (£3.70,in decent shape from this 2015 GBG entrant).
Higher marks would have been awarded if the guest ales had been more interesting,but my fish finger sandwich was spot on and it is great to see that a community spirit has been created by a lot of hard work.Worth a visit.

A tradiotional pub with real ales, homecooked food and a very friendly atmosphere. It's deceivingly small looking from the outside but hosts real pub charm and character once inside.
