Historic Interest

Built by Ind, Coope & Co Ltd in 1899, the Victoria Hotel is a fine late Victorian pub built opposite the old Beeston Brewery, which later became the Shipstone's Maltings. The Victoria Hotel was registered as an Asset of Community Value on the 14th January 2016 and was nominated by the Nottingham Branch of CAMRA. The Victoria Hotel has an heritage interior rated by CAMRA as being of Regional Importance:- "A large brick-built former hotel, adjacent to Beeston railway station. It has prominent brewery lettering on the frontage, and a foundation stone dated June 1899. Neglected by Allied Breweries until June 1994, it was purchased by Tynemill (now Castle Rock Brewery), and restored. The multi-room interior comprises Victorian and 1930s features. The entrance is into a lobby with a former tiny snug or off-sales straight ahead - this now used for storage. On the right is a good plain bar, self-contained with its own toilets. The main bar is on the left, and the back corner of this has been opened out into two further rooms, used mainly for dining for most of the day. Doors, windows and benches look original Victorian, but clearly there was a makeover during the 1930s, when the bar serveries were added to both main rooms - these appear to be mostly intact with some Art Deco features. Dado panelling, floors and fireplaces were also installed at the same time, and much of these survive, with minor alterations. In the rear lobby is a staircase with stained glass window. At the back is a garden alongside the railway. Entirely non-smoking, and no mobile phones - even in the garden. Note that the adjacent railway station and its platform shelters are grade 2 listed" ( As at November 2017, the Freehold for the Victoria (NT294614) was held by the Hands On Pub Co Limited [Reg. No. 4182974]. [Broxtowe Borough Council; Beeston Rylands Ward / Broxtowe Parliamentary Constituency]
