About us

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.

Another fabulous family meal, the food was excellent and the service first class. If I have one criticism it would be, when we left, which would have been around 6ish, this is the first time we have left in the dark, there were no lights in the car park and it was pitch black. I would have really struggled getting to my car on the uneven ground without the torch on my phone and not great as a safety aspect.

First time here for Sunday eve meal, a mile from A1, and not disappointed…. We were a party of 6 and I think last to eat as last food order Sunday was 5.30 but no slacking in quality of food or service. Jovial landlord and friendly staff added to the evening out with friends enjoyment. Food menu was varied and included Sunday roast, but I had a fish and king prawn medley with all the veg and roast potatoes…. Fab ! Following desert was Eaton Mess, to die for! See pic. We all said was great food! Complements to the Chef… We will be back, give it a try. 👍

Steak was amazing and the price for the special offer made it even better.. service was superb and if anything over attentive If that’s possible. landlord spotted my pint of ale wasn’t right and swapped it out then It was great, superb service. it’s a little retro in decor but that adds to the charm.. Not being for years and I will be back sooner.. left full, happy and very content.. well done

Amazing food! Excellent service. Picture is pork Wellington, steak pie, chicken stuff with goat cheese, and prosciutto wrapped cod. Definitely deserves a 4.8+ rating it has.
