Had a great home cooked Sunday lunch here recently. I particularly liked the red cabbage and generally it was cooked well. Possible improvements would be proper roast potatoes (they were roasted new potatoes), homemade apple sauce and personally I like carrots sliced rather than mashed with swede. I loved the option of a smaller portion, which was still plenty! All... More

Thank you for your review, we have always offered a smaller portion of our roast and carried it over to our main menu and specials board last summer and it has proved to be a great success. I can assure you that the roast potatoes were not new potatoes ( I peeled them myself) but the whole sack that we... More

Sorry but we don't like your change round, prefer not to see the pool table when we walk into a pub. Both the food and friendly service was excellent as usual though.

Thank you for your review, we must say your the first to say they don't like the new layout. It has worked much better for diners as there is much more room in the resturant and it is also quieter as your not sat right next to the bar. But thank you for your opinion, maybe we will see you... More

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
