I actually read some visitor reviews before visiting this pub for lunch on a nice sunny day. It surprised me to find it in a lovely residential street. The outside is striking, with all the beautiful flowers, and hanging baskets. The beer garden, and outside seating area are perfect for a fine day. There is a car park too. I... More

Back to the Victoria twice in a week! On both occasions, excellent food and ale; very well cooked/served, large portions so no need to eat for the rest of the day. Prices highish but very good value. Well patronised on Thursday lunchtimes, eclectic clientele with a touch of Towie-Hollywood wives as well as more othodox locals. What, I wonder, would... More

Took a family member for lunch. Very busy for a week day. My partners choice was sold out so she went for the dearer steak. They charged the price of the original dish to compensate. Nice touch. Lovely wine and cosy surroundings.

The Victoria Tavern is tucked away at the back of Loughton. It has a large car park and attractive gardens in which to enjoy the sunshine when it turns up! It is listed by CAMRA so people who enjoy a good Ale should not be disappointed. The interior is just how a pub restaurant should be, no fruit machines or... More

I visited this pub with my family after a long Easter Sunday walk. We were lucky to find one table which was just being vacated. The pub and restaurant was full and buzzing with happy familys of all ages. It wasn't a nice day to sit outside in their lovely garden, so everyone stayed inside. They do a nice choice... More

I previously rang the restaurant to book a table for Mothers Day. I was told by a member of staff who took my name that I had a booking and would be telephoned back with a seating time and would be required to pay a deposit. Following no return call, I again phoned the pub only to be told that... More

We spent a nice sunday afternoon in this pub. The Guinness is good and the wine is nice, not too expensive either. We had one order of lamb and one of beef. The lamb was very good but I was disappointed with the beef, it came swimming in gravy. The price wasn't too bad for what we had. The service... More

Have been here on numerous occasions and always had a fab meal. Family friendly, especially in the warmer months when you can sit outside and it suits us that you can just turn up without booking ahead. A great selection on the menu though being a creature of habit I always go for the roast beef which is amazing! Portions... More
