We went on a bitterly cold Sunday looking forward to a nice meal. The pub was cold and the fire unlit. The menu was carvery and we were offered a choice of beef or pork and then were astounded to only be given one slice of chosen meat. We live fairly locally and were hoping to use the pub again, needless to say we won't be going back. While we were there there was a total of five people in the pub ouselves included. One good point was that staff were pleasant and we did point out our criticisms to them.

We have eaten here about 5 times recently and at times it takes a while for the food but well worth the wait. They always accommodate us and are really friendly. I have a disable mother-in-law and at the carvery the owners asked what she would like and went and got her food for her, how nice. The play area is really nice outside and all fenced around. My kids are 13 and 11 and they love it their because this is a child friendly pub. We would recommend this place to everyone.

Met all the family at the Vic for a carvery last weekend. The meat was succulent and full of flavour. The veg was freshly cooked. Perfect :)

I'm not sure about the 'Worst pub ever' tag. I have eaten in this pub a number of times since it changed hands in April. All the staff are courteous and attentive. The food has always been excellent and well presented. I would recconmmend it to anyone. If you have smaller children you cold lose them forever in the Childrens playground.

Overall a great experiendce.

Called in to refresh my thirst and hunger. Alas, everything from the food, the beer, and the service was shockingly bad. I would avoid at ALL costs- lots of better alternatives...... The Fox & Hounds just round the corner is a far more superior experience. The Victoria is a typical MANAGED house.... a complete disgrace!!!!
