A wonderful pub/B&B venue. My only personal gripe was the lack of real ale at the bar but I can overlook that. The bottled Newcastle Brown is a good substitute and, as they say - " When in Rome ... ,etc.
A great breakfast was provided by co-proprietor Lynda who along with Chris couldn't be more pleasant and helpful. We didn't get the name of the young lady behind the bar during our 2-night stay but she was exceedingly pleasant as well.
I would also recommend trying the pub menu for evening meals, it's good standard pub grub.
It's fair to say that our room could be described as basic but nevertheless comfortable and all we required for our trip. My wife was happy with it and long experience has taught me that she can be hard to please in these sort of matters.
We are likely to be back. We have a relative who lives just a mile or so down the road and The Victoria is ideal accommodation for any visits.
