E TA left this review about The Victoria Tavern

A fairly scabby backstreet local mainly used by East Cowes's less cerebral yoofs. The Victorian building has had a flat-roofed extension added at one side into which the single long bar has oozed. The décor is the worst of 1960s dullness, capped by dreadful crazy-stone fronted fireplaces. The carpeted floor has laminate walkways to guide the less geographically able between the various facilities – pool table, two dartboards, gaming machine and the bar counter. There is a jukebox of the very worst kind and several TV screens showing nothing in particular – one suspects the clientele are waiting for the opportunity to see their soulmates on Jeremy Kyle. The staff were surly and unwelcoming, the regulars were hostile. The one saving grace – nearly – was the presence of a handpump dispensing Doombar, but sadly it tasted like syrup and wasn't at all enjoyable. We are not amused.
