Not worth the rating it has. Food was good but nothing mind blowing. Staff did not make us tourists feel particularly welcome.

,. We visited on a rainy Friday evening in January, having read and heard so many gushing reviews. Not an Ideal time. It was already crowded with locals and visitors, But what first struck me was how comparatively small it is, somewhat different from the impression given on it's website. Clearly it is very popular for meals, even at 6.30... More

Standard pub serving good food and drink, there is a restaurant upstairs but we did not try this, The pub does close early at 11pm and 10:30 Sundays which is a bit of a throwback these days

I had a quick dinner and drinks my first nite in London. I ordered my meal and by the time I returned from the ladies room, I was served! The price was a bit more than I cared for, but including tip and great service, no complaints from me

We enjoyed a nice dinner here for two families visiting London. All eleven people in our party were bey happy with their meals. I had the braised lamb shoulder and it was fall apart perfect. Beef and Ale pie was also a hit around the table. Service was prompt and friendly.

Meals are very reasonable, with ample seating on two levels. A good pint aswell. Whenever I arrive at Paddington after a 3hr journey, this is my first stopping point for a lunch break and a pint.

Had read reviews on this place and decided to track it down, as we weren't staying far. Was not disappointed, the food not your usual pub food - more upmarket. The atmosphere and ambience was perfect just as you would expect from a popular local English pub with the locals. This place has maintained a unique quality and is well... More

Been using the Vic for 3 years now on my trips to London. It's a great example of a Victorian Pub. Great atmosphere with a cosmopolitan clientele. Good beer, lovely food and a really nice Landlord and staff. Highly recommended!

Pub looked great so we dropped in for a drink and meal. Unfortunately it is one of the smaller pubs and we could not get a table. We had a drink instead, which we had on the footpath due to the overcrowding. We ended up eating in the chinese restaurant next door. If you are in the area drop in... More

Great atmosphere, always busy but friendly. Nice place to just sit and chit-chat with the locals. Great selection of beers and excellent pub-grub!
