The Vic is a beautiful building, retaining many original features. Most importantly every time I have visited there is a good choice of hand pumped real ales, eight on my last visit. Staff are friendly and prices are well below the rest of the city...More

I have visited the Victoria in all its various guises for over 50 years. The place has changed a lot during that time and has mainly maintained a good reputation as a local drinking and eating house. However (there had to be a 'but') the...More

I can honestly say i don’t think I’ve ever been served by a more rude obnoxious barman! It was obviously a massive chore to serve us and he made no attempt to hide the fact...No peroni, no Pinot Grigio he barked at me and then...More

The pub is lovely but not that big. The room to the side would be great so you have your own space. I'd book the room

Yes I would think so, i guess they have a website, you could check there, give them a call, it's Nicholsons Pub food. I'm sure they would cater, very friendly pub!

WELCOME TO THE VICTORIA HOTEL FAMOUS FOR IT'S "CONTRIBUTION TO CITY LIFE" AND THE LOCALS WHO SAVED IT FROM DEMOLITION You will find The Victoria Hotel in Great George Street within a short stroll of Leeds General Infirmary, Town Hall and Woodhouse Moor - however you won't find another like it. Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality. A FASCINATING PAST In 1989 we were given special recognition by Leeds Civic Trust for our 'splendid Victorian features and contribution to city life'. Built in 1865, the 'Vic' accommodated people attending the Assizes Court at Leeds Town Hall. It offered 28 bedrooms, dining rooms, private sitting rooms, a billiard room, and public meeting rooms. Despite all that history we are lucky to be here today as in 1973 our marvellous historic building had to be saved from demolition
