Having enjoyed a very good pint of beer during the summer we decided to visit for dinner. We were not disappointed, good choice of very interesting starters. We had a platter of tapas to share, with a portion of scotch eggs which had duck sausage meat and a runny egg format, delicious. For main course my wife and I had... More

We arrived at this pretty looking pub with full car park 2 days ago on a beautiful sunny day (19c) at 1245 to be told the garden was closed as the grass was wet! We took a look outside to find several tables on gravel in the garden, but that was not allowed either! Quite extraordinary as the garden furniture... More

Visited the Victory Inn today with my boyfriend, we had past this pub a few times but never ventured in! We were not disappointed, Staplefield is a rural location very ideal for those seeking a more chilled out atmosphere, the pub is idyllic, relatively small and has a real country feel to it. Staff were friendly, will definitely be going... More

excellent lunch yesterday, very friendly staff with jovial banter. Food as always freshly cooked to order and served with a smile. Fish & chips for myself and rib eye steak for my husband, quality of both could not be faulted. Have been coming to this pub for several years and will be coming back yet again.

You can't come to England and not try fish & chips! The Victory Inn always has fresh fish....never frozen, and their fish & chips are some of the best I have had! Their staff always welcomes you and the pub is very warm and inviting. You can sit outside or inside. A great selection of beers and a menu with... More

I go to the Victory regularly and we always enjoy good food - the reviewer who says they do small portions must have a huge appetite as I don't think I have ever eaten all the new potatoes and vegetables they provide - the fish is always fresh and I generally chose something off the board as it is a...

Many moons ago my parents used to live locally and eat here quite regularly, the place was always heaving and they used to rave about it. Twice we tried to eat there but just couldn't get in, im going back to 1998-2001 and since then I have always had this "really must try that place" whenever I have driven past.... More

This was one of the worst lunches I have ever eaten. The lettuce in my salad was either limp or going brown and should of been thrown away - it was inedible. My husbands sandwich consisted of two chunks of bread with a crust resembling something that had been warmed up to give it some life. Between them was one... More

Thank you for your review. I can now see you were not happy with your food. It's a shame you did not bring this to the attention of my Assistant Manager Jaime before you finished the meal as we would of either offered an alternative or given you a refund. At no point did you attempt to do this. I... More

As a local who lives in Staplefield village, I have seen a dramatic improvement to the quality of food and service at The Victory since Janet and Jane took over the pub. Janet and Jane have turned a failing business into a "must go to" pub. The food is of the highest quality, freshly delivered each day and chef Jane... More

Popped in this pub for a few drinks, the beer is good and well kept, I can't say much about the food as I only had a bowl of chips. My friend however had fish and chips, he said that it was very nice.. The pub itself is quaint, but has a underlying odd smell to it. The toilets should... More
