Great Food, Service not that great

We visited The Victoria Inn last Saturday around 5pm for some 'tea'. Unfortunately, the previous diners at our table hadn't finished so we had to wait in the bar area, this wasn't a problem so we ordered a drink in the nice surroundings. After about 30 mins, a young lady came and told us our table... read more

On May 29th we got married at Mere Hall, Bolton's Registry Office and chose the Victoria Inn, or Fannys as it is colloquially known, to have our reception. Now we are in our 50s and both married before so didn't want a big, formal hotel do, and didn't want to spend too much of the kids' inheritance. We had eaten... More

By swingers I mean the skewered meat variety ! Tasty, succulent pieces of chicken or steak seasoned and hung on a skewer with various roasted vegetables. Hand cut chips and a side salad is my favourite. I've tried lots of the food on the menu and have loved all of it. Good value for money and a great atmosphere

After hearing good things about The Victoria Inn in Bolton, we decided to go for a bite to eat to try it out, I have to say I was very disappointed. The plus points about it, lovely décor, very modern and very tastefully decorated, potentially could have a very good atmosphere. Also some of the food other people were eating... More

It wasn't bad, but could of been much better. 2 of us ordered chicken burgers, and they came absolutely dripping wet through! Been for drinks a... More
