This bar is situated inside the victoria hotel which we stayed at but is a bar and food outlet in its iwn right.The staff are very friendly but can be very busy so allow some time for a visit.Very good range of cocktails and afternoon tea although check times as I think it finishes at 3 but when we asked Martin the barman said no problem and rustled up cake and coffee.That is the thing that sets the pub and hotel apart is the willingness of staff to accomodate.

Looked good in the photos, but typical hotel bar, clean but lacked any atmosphere. Drinks expensive.

Lovely and relaxing pub in The Victoria. Really enjoyed the cocktails, and we watched the football here too. Fab staff!

As part of the hotel, we ended most of our evenings here. The elder bar staff were all friendly and funny with recommendations on what to drink
