There is pretty much anything and everything you could want on the colourful menu at The Victoria.
Whether you want a light bite, a quick sandwich or a hearty serving of pub grub, you will probably find it on the menu.
Having recently moved close to this Beverley pub, it was only a matter of time before we ventured in for a bite to eat.
It is certainly not a venue for a spot of fine dining but you don't normally expect that from a chain pub anyway, so with open minds, my partner and I paid a visit for tea during the week.
At the time, I was gearing up for a holiday and trying to stick to a healthy option but with a rumbling stomach, willpower went out the window and I was quickly drawn to the burger section.
I opted for the sweet potato and bean burger (£4.75), which could be seen as slightly healthy, I suppose. It was a kidney bean and soya burger, coated in a crunchy oat crumb, served with a garlic mayonnaise dip. It was really tasty. This came with a helping of chips.
My partner opted for the steak and ale pie (£6.15). This was a slice of shortcrust pastry pie filled with tender pieces of steak in Marston's Pedigree Ale gravy, served with chips, peas and extra gravy.
It wasn't a massive meal, but certainly ample.
Both were tasty pub dishes, staying clear of anything fancy and just providing us with a quick and easy meal.
A round of desserts followed the mains. I opted for something of a chocoholic's dream – a melt-in-the-middle chocolate pudding (£2.95). This was a warm and rich chocolate pudding with a melting middle, made extra chocolatey with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. This was a very indulgent choice and certainly a good one. It was delicious.
My partner opted for the apple crumble, which was made with chunky Kentish Bramley apples, topped with a golden, sweet crumble, served with custard (£2.85). There's a choice for ice cream or cream with this one, too.
The meals at the pub are all really well priced and our bill was under £20 for drinks, too, so you can't really complain.
As with many chain pubs (The Victoria is part of the Marston's group) it also has different themed nights, such as its Sizzling Night on a Thursday and Fajita Friday.
These special nights mean diners can get a free drink with their meal.
For me, it is definitely a good place to head to if you want a quick meal (we were served very quickly, despite there being plenty of other people in the pub) and no fuss. It's child-friendly, too, and there is no doubt you will find something you want to eat.
Type: Pub food.
Quality of food: Good.
Atmosphere: We visited midweek and it was pretty busy with families and quite a few tables filled with groups of friends. There were also those who were just having a drink, rather than eating. There was plenty of laughter.
Service: Quick and efficient.
Value for money: Great.
Best for: A quick and easy night out with friends, family or partner. It is a fairly laid-back venue, so I think it suits everyone.
Would you go again? Since it is only round the corner from where I live, it would be rude not to.
