We stayed a couple of nights at the Victory Inn. The room was good, the bathroom wonderful, and the breakfast not too early. A look at menus and prices in St Mawes suggested that the Victory Inn menu was interesting and comparatively cheap. This turned out to be right: the food was good. Above all, it had a good feel...

The Victory was pretty busy on Friday night with lots of food orders being made. We had a bottle of wine along with battered fish, chips and peas. The service was efficient and the food was ok. A bit of a shame the batter was a tad soggy and the mushy peas like warm!

Loved the fish and chips here with my other half enjoying the catch of the day. Ate here three times in our week-long stay. Puddings yummy and the liqueur coffees a real treat. The prices were reasonable and this was way better than the usual pub grub on offer in most places. Highly recommended.

We recently had two evening meals in the Victory which is a traditional pub with good surroundings. The first meal was in the ground floor bar area, the second in the rather unexciting upstairs dining room. The food was average pub standard, reasonably priced for summer in a tourist resort. Service for the first meal was friendly and helpful (if... More

We have just got home after having 2 weeks in Cornwall. Each Sunday we all came here for a Roast dinner. All 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed it, the veg, potatoes, mash, gravy... All of it super duper. We love Cornwall and our next visit down we will definitely be coming back here for our Sunday Roasts. We sat upstairs... More

This place is a gem. The food is amazing, the view from the terrace stunning, and the staff incredibly helpful. Not many establishments can cater for someone who is gluten, dairy and soya intolerant, someone who is dangerously allergic to seafood, and someone on a low FODMAP prescribed diet. They not only managed it, they did it with kindness and... More

We had an unplanned 2 nights in the Victory Inn when the Falmouth ferry was cancelled due to high winds. We were booked in without fuss despite being wet & muddy walkers. The room was comfortable with a bath, but was a bit tatty & in need of some TLC. We ate in the bar on both evenings & breakfasts... More

The Victory Inn is just off the waterfront, just up the street from the Ship and Castle. It is an excellent place to go for a quiet pint and/or a pub meal. It is quite a small place, one end being more the bar and the other end more the restaurant. It is an old fashioned or traditional pub, and... More
