Stayed there recently, clean & tidy room but absolutely tiny bathroom. The pub is generally full of pretentious knobs & expensive. Also staffed by a surly barmaid / manageress who has an attitude problem. She could benefit from attending a social skills course. Located in the better end of Peckham but only a short walk to "Slumville USA" AKA the... More

We booked a room here after not being able to find an airbnb in the area at short notice. A twin room was £100, very small and basic - more basic than a Premier Inn for example - and as others say the photos on the website do not fairly represent the rooms. The rooms could do with a bit... More

Popped in for a few drinks and ended up staying longer than expected with my partner. Decided on getting a bite to eat and that's when the experience took a turn for the worse. My shoulder of lamb consisted of bits of lamb made into a burger like patty with over seasoned mash and gravy. My partners fish and chips... More

My husband and I stayed here for a little weekend getaway in London. The food was good, the room was clean and cosy, and the manager and staff were hospitable. The location is convenient to public transport to get around other parts of London. We would stay here again.

In December 2014 we stayed at the Victoria Inn, Choumert Road, London SE154AR. The room was clean. It was £90 a night for a double room. A 25% breakfast discount was advertised but they were not doing breakfast when we were there. One reason for booking this Inn was that we could have a cooked breakfast. The stairs to the... More

This is a nice enough looking pub, unfortunately it is impossible to find a nice table to sit at (except for the tiny awkward tables in the middle of the room) any day of the week or time of day because all they are constantly occupied by prats who sit on laptops or loiter for hours without a drink as...

I went here for dinner with my husband as we live near by and we were disappointed. The menu has changed and now much more reflects Peckham gentrification, with prices increased to match. Unfortunately the price hikes haven't resulted in quality hikes - I ordered the lasagne which was literally just a square of school dinner style lasagne on a... More

This is the sort of place to stay when you are on a budget or unable to find anything else for one night. My room looked nothing like some of the photos on here. The bedding was clean. The bathroom was clean. The corridors were narrow, filthy and smelly. The room was absolutely boiling and the fan provided simply pushed... More
