Will Larter left this review about Victoria Hotel

What a beautiful pub building, and so unexpected when walking along Main Street with its very ordinary suburban houses. The pub is on a corner, with a gradually changing angle to the facade, which looks good from every aspect. Inside it's more than presentable, too, with the substantial bar counter with its brass rails for elbows and feet, and behind it a superb staircase (see photos). The main downside was the background music, which was too loud and delivered through poor quality speakers, giving a tinny aspect to the sound. Both unnecessary and unpleasant.

There are three hand pumps, but only one had any real ale, and this was Hobgoblin Gold. To be fair, this was in pretty good condition, but not to my taste. I would rather see a local beer than this rather boring one from the Marstons stable; are there any independent breweries in West Yorkshire? I think there might be one or two.

Spent the evening of St Patricks Day in The Victoria. Wonderful atmosphere with a lovely welcoming landlady from the Emerald Isle. A great place to drink and enjoy.
