Every time we visit London we go to The Victoria. The food, the atmosphere and drinks are just lovely. We visited after the refurbishment 2018 and the feeling still remains.

Beautifully preserved Victorian London pub. Decent food at a reasonable price too. Good selection of beers as you would expect. Pleasant service, so no reason at all not to return. Definitely recommended.
