On a trip into Birmingham with my son to visit the German Christmas Market, we had been there only a few minutes when it was all closed down due to high winds and rain... so we made our way just down the road to The Victoria which I think is billed as a Theatre Pub and Deep South Diner.
We entered and found a lovely relaxed atmosphere, subdued lighting and decent background music, not so loud you couldn't talk but not so quiet that you couldn't hear it. there were just a few folks seated in the lounge. We found ourselves a corner and got drinks from the Bar, two pints of 'Butty Bach' absolutely excellent ale. The staff were very friendly and the menu looked excellent but they also had a special offer on for lunch (2pm - 5pm) with a choice of three dishes for just £5 or £6 with home made chips... we both had the Southern Fried Wrap with chips. A couple more beers ordered from the Bar and our food was delivered, succulent tasty chicken in a wrap with a small salad, coleslaw and a handfull of chips. Just right for a nice lunch. We stayed on for a couple of hours and a couple more pints before making our way to New Street Station just a few hundred yards away for the train home. The Victoria is truly a nice place to be in a wet and windy city. First Class
