We met up with family for Sunday lunch at this pub on the edge of the village. Bright and happy atmosphere, we were strangers amongst the regulars but were made most welcome. This is not a 'foodie' pub, the emphasis is on quality but value for money. Sunday roast lunch was enjoyed by all, servings were generous. Our menfolk enjoyed... More

What a lovely family friendly pub. Has all the amenities to keep everyone entertained. Food was fresh, home-cooked and tasty, no long waits and portion size was towards the larger size - very filling. Extremely friendly service, large garden with lots to do for children. I would recommend this to everyone without hesitation. We will definitely be visiting again. Good... More

I have now visited The Victoria several times since the new year. It is a lot quieter than some other local pub/restaurants but the standard of both the food and service have been excellent. Indeed our first visit for a Sunday roast was probably the best pub meal I have enjoyed in years. The staff are friendly and accommodating and... More

Arrived to a very lovely looking pub from the outside, I certainly wasn't disappointed with the welcome and the look of the inside on entering. The pub landlord and his wife were very chatty and recommended certain dishes and specials. The selection of drinks were varied and we all sat in the converted cellar room which was very pretty. The... More

We re-visited the Victoria at Thurston on Saturday and were not disappointed. I am sure the lady in the review made on the same day as us was at a different restaurant, as the meals mentioned by her were not even on our menu. The food is good, wholesome food, well cooked and served piping hot. There is no way... More
