The Victoria Inn is a corner pub that is painted in the modern battleship grey colour,which looks pretty drab in my opinion.
Once inside i went into a largish L shaped room,there was tall bench seating to the front and side of the room with the other seating being small tables and chairs.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Adnams bitter which was decent enough,the other beer was Old Speckled Hen.
This was a decent enough pub that was fairly smart inside.

The Victoria Inn is a decent sized corner pub with two bars that make up a U shaped interior that has had a recent makeover. The pub’s name changed from the Wishing Well in 2010 so I assume that the refurbishment took place around this time. To the left of the left hand bar is an open kitchen and the chalkboard bore a gastro type menu with pricing of around £10 for a main dish. In the right hand bar there is table football and a retro Pacman table along with a book case that holds plenty of reading material. There is also a door to the toilets and a large children’s room that stores some toddler toys and a plasma screen with the facility to show DVDs.
I found the young ladies on duty to be friendly enough and the ales available during my recent Friday afternoon visit were Adnams’ Broadside, Sharps’ Spring Cask Pilsner, Greene King’s Old Golden Hen and Florence Brewery’s Bonobo which is brewed at the Florence pub down the road in Herne Hill. There were another two unused hand pumps and a standard and premium draught selection is available.
Behind a waist high wall at the front of the pub is some café style seating that was very popular during my sunny Friday afternoon visit.

I had a pleasant enough stay and would have no problem returning, although my visit was during school hours so I do not know if this place gets packed out with children during late afternoons and at the weekend.

I didn’t manage to get into this pub, as it apparently doesn’t open until 5.0 PM Mon to Wed. However, peering in the window I spotted a couple of handpumps on the bar counter bearing clips for Sharp’s Cornish Coaster, and Harvey’s Best. It looked as if it has had something of a makeover inside, but no doubt I’ll have the opportunity to take a closer look on some future occasion.
