Out for walk with friends last Sunday afternoon and wanted somewhere to eat that would still be serving food after 2pm. Came across the Victoria (which we thought had closed down) and saw an advertisement on the window that they served food until 5pm on a Sunday, great news, decided we would call in and perhaps try the Sunday lunch after our walk. We were not expecting anything particularly good but were immediately given the best table in the restaurant overlooking the fields with glorious views, then most pleasantly surprised as the food was absolutely delicious and good sized portions too. Although quite stuffed we decided to go for a dessert, again very good, my only criticism would be the lack of sticky sauce on the sticky toffee pudding, it was a little dry, but overall the food far exceeded our expectation. Service was excellent, friendly and attentive, service with a smile which is sometimes missing in some establishments these days. Will definitely visit this pub again.
