I have now visited The Victoria several times since the new year. It is a lot quieter than some other local pub/restaurants but the standard of both the food and service have been excellent. Indeed our first visit for a Sunday roast was probably the best pub meal I have enjoyed in years. The staff are friendly and accommodating and... More

Arrived to a very lovely looking pub from the outside, I certainly wasn't disappointed with the welcome and the look of the inside on entering. The pub landlord and his wife were very chatty and recommended certain dishes and specials. The selection of drinks were varied and we all sat in the converted cellar room which was very pretty. The... More

We re-visited the Victoria at Thurston on Saturday and were not disappointed. I am sure the lady in the review made on the same day as us was at a different restaurant, as the meals mentioned by her were not even on our menu. The food is good, wholesome food, well cooked and served piping hot. There is no way... More

We visited here for a birthday lunch for my mother. The women serving who was the pub managers wife said she had no clue as to what was in the dishes on the menu. She stated that they were bought in frozen & then warmed. My sister & mother ordered the spinach and ricotta cannelloni which sounded lovely when it... More

A group of 13 of us arrived half an hour late for a booked meal and the staff couldn't have been more helpful! Someone drove out to meet us as it was sheeting with rain and we'd lost our way! The food was piping hot and good quality pub grub - absolutely no complaints as to standard or amount. Many... More

It was a warm welcome and apology for a basic menu, but it was to my taste as not into fancy food. It you want simple but wholesome food this is the place to go. A beautiful meal.Friendly and very clean too.

We have been here twice since new ownership, excellent service and value for money. Please give them a try, I know it has changed hands quite a few times but these new people seem to know what they are doing and are trying very hard to please. Very friendly and accommodating well done, we need a few more country pubs... More
