E TA left this review about The Victoria Hotel

A grand red-brick Victorian hotel, described by Aqualung and Alex, below, originally an Inde Coope inn as evinced by two foundation stones by the front door. There is a small car park in the former yard behind, and limited parking at the front. The large bar room at one end is reserved for restaurant diners, while the other 3 bars are mainly laid to table. The high ceilings, wooden floors and brick fireplaces give it a very distinctive feel, homely yet grand. It is architecturally pleasing. The clientele were a cross-section, mainly locals and ale drinkers, while the staff were pleasant and knowledgeable. Live music is advertised, but none was on when we visited. Five ales on draft, I had Castle Rock's Harvest Pale Ale, which was in excellent condition. I wish I could have tried all the beers, but I'll certainly be back to do that before too long.

The Victoria is a grand old red brick building that must surely have been built as a station hotel even though direct access between the Northbound platform and the pub garden is via a gate mentioned below or a footbridge for the other platform.
I went in the room on the right which is a square room with a tiled floor, benches, tables & stools and had a roaring fire.
The five hand pumps here had Everard's Tiger, Burton Bridge Bitter, Blue Monkey Ape Ale, Hop Studio Barolo and Adnam's Ghost Ship. I went for the Ape Ale (£3.70) which was excellent.
This is a fine old pub that has been well restored and is highly recommended. I didn't have as much time as I would have liked here so it's a strong 9.

The Victoria is a large pub located directly next to Beeston train station and is house in a very impressive old building that had been derelict for a long time. Thankfully it has been wonderfully altered into one of the premier real ale destinations in Nottingham. As you enter there are rooms to the left and right that are divided by a wall and served at the back from a long bar that runs the entire with of both rooms. Further on from the left room is a dining are for the home cooked food that is served daily, there is no menu because the food is made on a daily basis and is taken out once it has ran out giving a great variety every time and is of really good quality. There is a fantastic selection of real ales available and beer quality is always spot on and unlike some pubs have a vigorous checks and balances system to monitor every beer to make sure it is never kept in too ling. On my last visit there was : Castle Rocks Harvest Pale (£3.10) Fullers London Pride (£3.30) Everards Tiger (£3.30) Holdens Black Country Bitter (£3.20) Caythorpe One Swallow (£3.10) Burton Bridge Golden Delicious (£3.20) Lancaster Southern hemisphere Hopped Ale (£3.20) Full Mash Séance (£3.20) Hop Back Citra (£3.20) Scribblers One Brew Over The Cookoos Nest (£3.60) Welbeck Abbey Nightingale (£3.70) Caythorpe Dark Gem (£3.10) and daleside Stout (£3.30). a fantastic range and the few we tried were all great, open fires and a terrific beer garden that hosts live music, a proper destination pub that I urge anyone to seek out.
