Old Boots left this review about The Victoria Hotel

A grand if slightly industrial looking Victorian building, possibly built to cash in on railway trade by Ind Coope in 1899 as it’s next to the pretty railway station (Midland Railway 1847) and sadly with a locked unusable access gate to platform 1 (Nottingham bound). Due to the plague I was exiled to a permanent marquee in the backyard, busy with their preferred clientele of diners it was a while to get a beer ordered. Doubly upsetting as the interior could have been well worth seeing (see the WhatPub description as well as those below). Seven casks on offer from localish breweries, Salopian and Kirkstall among the guests with Ilkley, Shipstones and Stanscil bringing up the rear ; Full Mash and Castle Rock appear to be the regulars. Fortunately the beer list was prominent and in several places, the beer quality good and the marquee was heated so not too unpleasant on a chilly late September afternoon. Benefits from an outside Gents.

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.

Aqualung . left this review about The Victoria Hotel

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.
