About the Pub

The Victoria has been a public house as far back as the 1840's. Residing by the west gate of the historic Lincoln Castle, this Batemans public house is popular with locals and tourists alike. As well as its Good Honest Ales, the pub has quality changing guest ales sourced from around the UK. There's regular music and fortnightly quizzes in the bar and a Board games group that meets on Tuesdays in the upstairs room. The outdoor seating area is a summer suntrap, perfect for watching the world go by over a lazy alfresco lunch or a pint at any time of day. Meals are served at lunchtimes, sandwiches and snacks are available all day.
