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

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

Don't pass this little gem by. We decided to drop in on a Sunday evening and were welcomed as soon as we walked through the door. This is a great pub and they serve lovely food. The specials board is worth checking out. We visited again only a few days later and it had changed already. Each time we cleared... More

We had been on porthtowan beach for the day and went to eat in the local pub down there which was very busy. The wait for food was so long that we decided it would b quicker to look elsewhere and that's how we came across the victory. Thankfully they had room for us but what struck was how friendly...

We have been visiting this Pub/Restaurant for some years on our visits to Porthtowan and the consistent quality of food and drink is superb. There has been a recent change of bar management but the superb standards are still being kept. This is a must for anyone in the area.

13 of us went for a family meal on a friday night, including 5 children. Beer was the best i had in the area with good local beers on offer rather than just the usual generic DoomBar and Tribute. Meals were all spot on especially the kids meals which are just slightly smaller portions of the adult menu, which is... More
