“Excellent riverside garden.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Visited the Victoria many times over the years. Called in a couple of times while on holiday in nearby Dyffryn for a quick drink but did not get around to having a meal there. Staff were friendly and the garden on the banks of the Artro is very pleasant.

We visited the Victoria Inn twice, once for lunch, and once for breakfast. On both occasions the staff were very friendly and the service was good.

We had a decent lunch, good pub food in a nice atmosphere. The Victoria Inn also serves a good breakfast between 8.30 to 11.30 - so not too early!

One of the attractions was the advertisement that the pub used its own produce from its gardens - didn't see evidence of this on the menu, so perhaps more could be made of this. But overall nothing negative to say about the Victoria Inn, recommended.

We tried the Victoria Inn whilst staying at a cottage in the village for a week, the pub was not too busy the first night that we tried it in the early evening, a bit disappointed with a limited menu but found enough on it to satisfy us. The food was ok but not as good as the price charged. Decided to give it another try the next night but felt the same and so we didn't return, shame really as it was so handy and had good atmosphere.

Been her many times. Much better out of season, as in holidays very busy. Latest meal, lunch, as expected. Good pub food, prompt and friendly service. Good value. Nice mix of bars and good gardens on bank of river. Tend to come her for lunch whenever in area.

Stayed 4 nights over 2013 August Bank Holiday weekend - rooms, breakfast and food as nice as ever but WiFi connection needs urgent attention. It was EXTREMELY busy for meals and staff coped well with some awkward customers (and their undisciplined brats of chidren) who seemed to expect a 5-star experience in a place that by its very nature can never provide that - all I can say in response to some of the negative reviews (and this after staying there many times) is that I have always had very good food and drink served by nice friendly staff. There is a delightful outside garden area. I thoroughly look forward to my next stay there.

I have huge fond childhood memories from this place. It was great to see my children enjoy the garden like I did all those years ago too.
We actually ate here twice during our holiday. It was very busy and the staff, rightly so, seemed a little stressed each time. Basically it felt like there were too many washing glasses rather than serving.
Steaks, beef pie; great. Welsh quiche; Gorgeous! Burgers were on the dry side.
Value for money. Watch out for queue podgers at the bar though!!

Positives - the beer garden is lovely and caters for everyone - large covered terrace / play area for kids / raised waterside area alongside the river. Beer was good and seemed well kept

Negative - The food frankly was appalling. I am unsure of how any pub these days can get away with serving such dross. Do the proprietors not eat out anywhere else ? Do they not do any research about what may pass as acceptable pub food. Prices are mid range (10gbp ++) for main but the food resembles something you'd get at a chain for a fiver & a pint thrown in.

Landlord - if you read this please take some time out to go & research your business, stop offering condiments in "own brand" sachets, employ someone who can cook & not just operate a microwave and a deep fat fryer.

Room Tip: Good for a pint sat by the river & somewhere for the kids to play - give the food a miss

Gemma B, Owner at The Victoria Inn, responded to this review, 30 August 2013
Thank you for your review and I can only apologise for your bad experience with us, had you come to me in person I would of resolved your problem on the day.
Answer to your question YES we do eat out when we're not working 70 hours a week and I am fully aware of what the city restaurants are offering but we are not a gourmet restaurant but a village pub that serves bar meals. We can serve up to 400 meals a day in the summer so yes we serve fast food and homemade food that is easy to dish out. Our menu is very clear it states which dishes are homemade and our prices are reasonable. We use the best butchers in the area and unlike other pubs we grow our own vegetables and salad.
The Victoria has been our family business for over 20 years and we are still very busy, my guess is that we are doing something right!
Hopefully if you decide to return we'll have a new menu that will satisfy your needs
Kind regards
Gemma
