I booked this at the last minute, and arrived with a friend on 24/8/13.We were doing the pennine way.The decor is rather dingy, but my single room was clean, and comfortable.The noise from the bar downstairs started at about 8.00, and went on until 2.00 a.m.The patrons swore, shouted at each other, many doing this at the top of their...

Staying at the Lovelady Country House Hotel just outside Alston my wife and I decided to try the Victoria Inn Spicy Indian Restaurant as we both enjoy an Indian. As we walked in we asked the lady behind the bar where do we dine? Anywhere we were told. I ordered a couple of drinks and as I stared in disbelief... More

Quite a jolly visit to this friendly hotel. The Indian restaurant at the back of the public bar gave good food and entertaing guests' conversation. Bedroom was 'Victorian' but modern en suite - glass and pine. Bigger room than I had for two in French hotel and the price for B&B here was below Travelodge and certainly more space. Look... More

We were staying in a cottage near by and decided to take a "punt" on the curry as I know the pub from years past and its pretty run down. We made a good decision. I had the vindaloo and the wife had chicken Tikkas plus starters, keema nan etc. It was one of the best currys ive ever had... More

We didn't stay here but went in for the Curry. It was a little dowdy and rundown and choice of beers wasn't the best. We did nearly leave, it looks/feels like a locals pub (pool table, young uns etc). However, the Indian attached was one of THE best we've ever experienced: good portions of really tasty food. It was slightly... More

Well located in Alston town centre with a friendly landlady and staff. Slightly tired decor, but quite comfortable and clean with a good shower. Breakfast was as it comes, however OK. The Indian restaurant in the pub was all a little unusual. For a relatively inexpensive overnight stay was all fine with secure space for the bike. However I will... More

Needed an inexpensive stop over that was convenient, close to amenities, shops etc. and found The VIC, a real and utter treasure beyond my expectations!!!! The landlady (TIAN-I hope that is correct spelling) was a delightful Angel, nothing too much bother and her staff were first class. A great PROPER pub (no CHROME & WALNUT pretentious crap here) with an... More

We booked in for one night in a busy week in August where we'd already been turned away from four fully booked B&Bs. So we jumped in. First thoughts were, what a great, amusing and friendly landlady, followed by a large and spacious en-suite room (see pic above). The room was great, clean and tidy, with a large bed and... More
