Foodie Fridays: Victoria Pub & Grill

I have been coming to Victoria Pub & Grill for almost as many years as I’ve been able to purchase alcohol for myself. The location is great, in that it is not in a heavily trafficked area and thus avoids getting overrun on a daily basis. Parking is a bit tough sometimes, but not bad. The owner, Mike, is/was in a yacht club, so as part of the decor, you will see trophies and flags on the walls that do little to give the impression you are in an actual pub. Everything else- from the woodwork, to the little alcoves downstairs in which you can sit down to eat- takes care of that.

They have a great beer selection and almost any type of liquor you could want. Prices, while they have increased a bit over the years, are quite reasonable. Both the Union Jack and Pub Burgers are fantastic. The Fish ‘n’ Chips can get a little soggy, but are still an absolute must. The Cottage Pie and Chicken Wellington are also must-tries. The staff is also pretty knowledgeable about the menu and super helpful, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Victoria is a great place just to relax on a Monday evening with a great meal and a cold beer. Everyone there is only too happy to greet you (many times by name) and make you feel right at home. It’s just great to have a place, to borrow a phrase, “where everybody knows your name.”
