Come eat, drink and be merry at the centre of ” God’s own county”, The Victoria at Cattal, one of the few remaining family run freehold country inns.

We are sure that our friendly service, well kept Yorkshire hand pulled ales and fresh, local produce befits our newly found responsibility.

The Victoria is a proud Free House with our very own Bitter, ‘Balky’s Best’ as our best selling session ale.

Your host Steve Balcombe, is no stranger to real ale and has a passion to match his skill in the world of beer. Steve learnt the Yorkshire way of pampering ale in 1985/87 under the watchful eye of Mr. Rob Ilsley at the Three Cups in Stamford Bridge. York.

After years of admirable dedication to the art of sampling and keeping real ale, Steve decided that the ultimate beer wasn’t yet available so after yet more sampling and adjusting his recipe ‘Balky’s Best’ was finally perfected!

Stephen spends a lot of time in Ireland, sampling the delights of the nationally renowned beer, Guinness. It has been said that the Guinness in The Victoria is one of the best you'll find this side of the Liffey.
