Steve C left this review about The Victoria

The Victoria is a tourist pub located on the first floor up some stairs from the main high street. The U-shaped interior has seating around the walls so can get a bit ‘cosy’ when busy as this isn’t the biggest place. The décor is traditional, and the left-hand wall is lined with etched mirrors. The bar supports four hand pumps that were drawing Adnams, Caledonian’s Deuchars and Victoria Ale, the fourth was unused. Standard keg is also available alongside Birra Moretti and Amstel. I went for a half and didn’t receive my 10p change. The surly barmaid looked like she was chewing a wasp, so I didn’t ask for it. Traditional pub grub is served. This is probably the worst pub I have visited in Chester so I will leave it to the unsuspecting tourists in future.

given its tourist trap location I did expect this to be a bit more trendy than it was. it's a bit dowdy and old fashioned inside really but lacking the traditional warmth of the Sam Smiths pubs. Deuchars IPA the only ale going and it was too busy to even place a drink inside.

A fairly dull, touristy, food led pub. The place is spread around a central bar and to be honest is pretty bland. Expensive beers including standard national real ales. You'd be better off walking down to Lower Bridge St.
