The Victory is a very old building, and in many ways a traditional pub - with traditional old pub toilets, for example. But the food is very good! I had an excellent ploughman's lunch, with soft cheeses well kept and nicely presented.

Not my first visit to the Victory Inn but a welcome return for a Friday lunch. Visited to meet friends who were already eating at their reserved long table. Car park was full, so I parked in the not-busy small road which passes the pub along the village green. I would have come by bus if there had been a... More

I hadn't been to this pub for nearly 6 years, it previously having been of excellent reputation. We decided to have a family roast out and came back to see how it was. Exactly as I remembered it, a lovely pub, warm friendly and welcoming. The roasts were excellent, we had a beef and lamb between us, lovely selection of... More

I am giving the Victory more stars than this visit would warrant because I have had a good eating experience here before. On this occasion"no". The Inn organised soup and sandwiches, a good idea to serve a big group efficiently. Home made soup self served from a cauldron into enamel mugs. This was OK. Well the sandwiches were another matter.... More

If, like me, you are tired of pretentious pubs that think that they are Michelin starred restaurants, charging excessively for very ordinary food, then The Victory will come as a breath of fresh air. A very nice atmosphere and surroundings, pleasant and attentive staff, and really good "pub" food at realistic prices. Sunday lunch is excellent - the roasts are... More

We regularly eat at the Victory and would highly recommend a visit. There's a great atmosphere in the pub - Janet and Jane are friendly landladies and their team provides good service. They're also dog-friendly which is great! The menu changes seasonally and seems to have something on it for everyone. The food itself is fresh and tasty, the portion... More

Good varied food, with choice of "pub grub" or various fish / meat specials. Attentive but not over bearing service and always a good choice of beers on tap....
