How disappointing that a picturesque village pub has been completely taken over by dining. Should you require a quiet drink you are forced to sit in the crowded noisy public bar. If its good weather the best option if you only want a drink would be to sit outside.

We are now very much food regulars since moving to a neighbouring village - tried a majority of the other restaurants and for us the food quality does not match the Victory Inn - great Chef. Book early as word is out on this place - especially for the Sunday Roast, but they will do what they can to accommodate... More

Having visited this pub the week before for a quick drink, we decided to book a table for a 40th birthday special occasion in May and telephoned to make the booking. Spoke to the Landlord who was very rude indeed and said he could not guarantee a nice table even though you are asked to book ahead on their website!... More

Friendly service from the bar and restaurant staff. We were a large party and the waitress was very efficient and welcoming. Food was good although, this visit , I chose the wrong thing. My husband and I chose spiced beef strips with French fries and, although it tasted ok, was rather dry to our taste. Rest of meal was good.... More
