With a succulent roast served daily, and a breakfast, lunchtime and evening menu provided, we truly are the place to dine when you're looking for great home cooked food. The best restaurant in the Vale of Glamorgan is right here!We serve real ales and often have local ale on sale.

“Good food, good service.”

We liked that it was a small walk from our cottage. The staff was very friendly and the food was authentic and a great value.

“Were we invisible? Appalling welcome and service (or lack of it)!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

My wife and I visited the Victoria Inn on 21/04/14 intending to have a drink and a nice lunch. We had dined at the pub on several occasions previously and had always had excellent food and friendly service. What a poor welcome awaited us this time! The only person who actually acknowledged us when we approached the bar was a young waitress who wasn't able to serve us. The other person behind the bar, who we assume was the landlady, was more concerned with having a chat with a local in the bar. The landlord, when he appeared, also ignored us. It was as though we weren't there. It wasn't busy and we were the only couple waiting to be served. When the landlady finished what she was doing, she walked straight past us and proceeded to serve a local who had wandered in after our arrival. At this point, we left the establishment as we felt we weren't welcome. We are absolutely appalled at their rudeness and will not be returning!!

“evening meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

we went to the vic to celebrate our friends wedding anniversary, three of us had prawn cocktails and the other garlic mushroom which were all very tasty, then we all had steaks for main two ribeye & two sirloin, they were tender but not much taste,we could not work out how they were cooked? all were grey in colour and did not look if they had been fried or grilled! the restaurant was warm and the service ok but were disappointed with the steaks. we will probably go again sometime and try a different meal.
