ABOUT THIS PUB

The Victoria Public House was purpose built to serve it's community in 1865. Back then it was previously known as The Cricketers, but there was another pub situated on the Bedford Rd with the same name, naturally this lead to confusion, so the two Landlords decided to settle the matter by meeting on neutral ground between the two premises, this was Butts Close. Some say the matter was settled by simply tossing a coin, show more...although others suggest a duel. Either way The Cricketers on the Bedford Rd won, sadly a pub no more, and in Victorian times it was very popular to choose Royal titles so this pub was re-named and The Victoria was born. Originally it was a “Spit and Sawdust” pub and earlier in the twentieth century the barns at the back of the buildings were used for selling feed for animals such as pigs, hens and rabbits. Victoria Kevans took over as Landlady in 2006, daughter to her predecessor Cilla Kevans, The Vic has featured heavily throughout her life, as a social hub and workplace. During her 13 year reign Victoria has gradually extended and modernised things to create the comfortable surroundings you are welcomed to today. The pub has undergone a recent refurbishment acknowledging it's Victorian roots with sympathetic decor amongst modern amenities and touches. The spacious beer garden has an impressive sheltered area, the old barn has been transformed from a storage area into a function room available for private hire, live events and free community use. The Victoria is the true meaning of a public house, everyone is welcome and made to feel at home. In a climate where 28 pubs are closing down every week, we can proudly say that The Victoria pub is still serving it's community and will do so for many years to come.
