I have been here many times over the years as Jericho is where I socialize. It has a good décor and atmosphere is a London style pub with a great beer garden out the back a terrace out the front to people watch. However, I visited here a few months ago and was greeted by rude staff but it was... More

Gem of a place, looks small on the outside but like the tardis is full of rooms, large and small with a great big beer garden. We started our evening off with some lovely gin and tonics but ended up on the whisky as their selection is vast!!!! Staff very knowledgable and friendly will definitely return!!

I've been here three times. The first time they refused to serve us on a sleepy weekday evening because we had a 17 year old with us who only wanted to eat, not drink. The second time they asked a guy to leave the outside yard on a summer evening because he had a young puppy with him and they... More

The Victoria is a lively, popular pub with a great atmosphere (fantastic Christmas decorations when we were there!) and a really excellent, friendly bar staff, who also serve the food. The food portions were generous and delicious (home-baked pies with salad and chips), but extraordinarily cheap; the three of us shared a baked camembert with chutney and toast as a... More

As this pub/restaurant was just down the street from our lodging we decided to try it for dinner. The food is good, not expensive and it has an extensive dining area. Seems to be a rallying spot for local students, but you can eat in the upstairs dining area if you want something more intimate. I would eat there again.... More

Perfect, quiet pub for a cold winter's night. Grab a seat by the log fire if you can. Really cool decor and good service, will be back for food!

In contrast to mainly of the traditional pubs that have been (unfortunately) modernized, this place looks and feels like a traditional pub. Inside is warm with many nooks and crannies. Upstairs has very comfortable chairs in variable size seating arrangements. Outside front and back for when weather nice. Back has heaters near several of picnic tables. Menu is limited but... More

Popped in yesterday for the first time at about 6pm, gorgeous interior very traditional, dark and candlelit but spacious and good music playing. Staff were superb, I had my dog with me and they were super accommodating giving a water bowl and allowing her into all areas. We stayed on for supper, I have chicken and wild mushroom pie with...
