Very busy but staff very helpful and took my mobile no. And phoned as soon as a table was available. Good food reasonably priced and good service from friendly staff.

Nothing too pretentious; just a nice ambience in clean, traditional surroundings - without music, slot machines or smell of fried food. As I said, perfect place to meet someone for a beer after work.

This is why I love London. The Victoria is so pleasant with a relaxed atmosphere, excellent food and good beers – at a reasonable price. Book in advance and ask for a table in the room with the fireplace on the first floor.
