Quinno _ left this review about The Victoria

A tidy-looking corner pub by Sainsburys. Three ales were on (Banks Bitter, Pedigree and something called One Eyed Jack from Concertina, a Mexborough brewery). My half of Jack was OK and came in at £1.50. There’s a fairly standard interior layout with a modern veneer (red and white painted walls and fittings), clean and tidy and there’s some traditional-style leaded cross-hatching on the modern double-glazed windows. Some local magazines and the CAMRA branch newsletter were available which helped pass the time nicely. Sky Sports News was the main source of everyone else’s entrainment on my Saturday afternoon visit. The punters in here were more welcoming of strangers than a number of other nearby venues and service at the bar was genuinely friendly. The perennially flashing fruit machine was annoyingly placed, no matter where I looked I could sense the damn thing. Overall they certainly seem to be doing the right things here and I’d be happy enough to return again. A solid local.

The Victoria is a stone built pub that is situated just off the village area at the top of the hill.
Once inside there was an L shaped room that was carpeted to the right,there were normal tables and chairs and the pub was quite busy on my late afternoon visit.
There were two real ales on the bar and i had a drink of Bradfield Farmers Blonde which was a very nice drink the other beer was Brakspear Gold.
