About the Pub

Built in the late 1800’s before being bought by Hydes in 1904 and extended into the adjoining off licence in the 1980’s. The period exterior with its etched glass windows hides a large open-plan compartmentalised interior. This area mixes local residents with one of the largest student populations in Europe, who bolster the trade in the evenings. This mix of clientele ensures that the pub is busy at lunchtimes and can be packed in the evenings. The pub also benefits from big screen sports and is an increasingly popular venue for watching the game. It boasts enthusiastic darts teams, alternating live music (first Saturday of month is Motown) and a disco / DJ (Fri) and weekly quiz nights (Thu) when competition between students and locals can be boisterous but is always good-natured. At the rear of the pub there is an attractive outdoor beer patio where you can enjoy a cold drink in the sunshine. Recently sensitively refurbished by Hydes, the Victoria now increasingly also sells guest beers and traditional ciders. Typically the pub will sell Hydes core range together with four or more guest beers, often from micro breweries. Ciders are Westons Old Rosie plus two changing ciders.
