Hydes Original & Mild, Spin Doctor, Jekyll's Gold (£2.20), + one unclipped. Large pub presumably amended to a mostly open-plan look, roughly in a four-quartered square. To the left of the entrance is a pool & dart room with black & white floor tiles, to the right a room open to the bar with upholstered wall settles & a couple of the tables here had a lower shelf, too rare these days, enabling safe drinks storage during a game of cards (usually crib, don or nap up here), or dominoes. There is a wooden bar canopy with some coloured lead lights and opposite (far left corner) the largest ‘quarter', itself semi-divided by a wooden ceiling arch. Carpetted here, with some pristine studded-leather wall banquette seating in the shape of two large facing crescents. Bar-side of the arch had corner plasma showing 5-a-side (with sound!) which no-one was watching, an upright piano is unfortunately flanked by a quiz machine. Victorian prints adorn the walls, other furniture is traditional wood tables/chairs/stools. Some nice original exterior signage, in stone above door and at roof level. Rather quiet on my afternoon visit, but pretty good pub if you like Hydes, the Jekyll's was on form.

The Victoria is a decent looking pub that is at the northern end of withington.
Once inside this pub was quite smart and looked like it had been done up,i had a drink in a smart room that was carpeted and had comfortable seating.
This pub is an Hydes tied house and there were two real ales on the bar i had a drink of Hydes bitter and this was a decent drink the other beer was Hydes mild.
I thought this was a pleasant enough pub to have a few drinks in.
For some strange reason i forgot to take a photo of this pub.
