We have a holiday home nearby and as much as we try to prepare food there we are very often tempted to visit the Victory. The food is always well presented and expertly cooked and portions are just right. We regard the Victory as our preferred place to eat having tried a number of other pubs and tolerating dreadful samples... More

I came here with a friend after a walk on the cliffs at St Agnes. What a treat. The chicken and leek pie was outstanding. the pastry was fantastic. The rest of the menu was interesting and good value too. Must go back and try the mussels, steak etc. A good selection of local beers all at very reasonable prices.... More

It's a very nice pub, beer is great, however during the visit I was hoping to try some food, but they stopped serving at 14:30, great atmosphere, friendly staff and customers. Also it would of been nice for the fire to be in use, it's been a very cold and stormy weekend an open fire would of been a cheery... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your visit, we are sorry that you didn't get the chance to sample our wonderful food. Most pubs finish food service at 2.30 apart from those who offer accommodation. We do have two fires in the bar and resturant area and are soon... More

I have to admit that, after taking a look at the menu, I was expecting microwaved pub food. But oh how wonderfully wrong I was! The meals are absolutely DIVINE. I was one of a party of 16 and everyone LOVED their meal! The setting was cosy and warm and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. What a wonderful,... More

What a pub this is! Oozing with character and located in one of the loveliest parts of Cornwall. There is always a warm friendly welcome, a great choice of beer and a superb menu. I always try to visit The Victory whenever I'm in Cornwall. If you are looking for an unspoilt, traditional, historic Cornish pub/inn that's easy to get... More
