I ate & drank here (when it was an O'Neills's) a couple of years ago & so decided to revisit it in its new guise as the Victoria Comet. First attempt on a late Saturday afternoon was a flop. More than rammed, it was impossible to get in the door let alone reach the bar. Tried again Sunday, much less crowded & I quite enjoyed the place. A nice pint of Black Sheep (3.00) and friendly service, next door to my hotel & across the road from the train station.

Now re-opened as the Victoria Comet a Nicholsons Pub. Ususally has around 6 real ales on. Some unusual beers have been on when I've visited.

Went it on a Wednesday night when it was completely dead, so maybe not the best time to give a full appraisal. Usually these O’Neills incarnations all attempt uniformity in what they attempt to offer, except it seems the times of when they serve food.

Got in just after 2100 and when I asked if they were still serving food, the polite guy behind the bar regrettably said no. I’m not entirely sure but I think this particular O’Neills advertise they stop serving at 2200, so that was slightly annoying. He did tell me of another pub round the corner where I could get food, so I guess that’s something, but any place that is happy to shave off an hour of service is most likely going to be happy taking short cuts elsewhere too.

So, all in all, just another O’Neills, albeit one that doesn’t do what they say they will.

(Although having just read the last review – praise The Lord)

Note that the previous comments refer to this place being 'dirty' and going to 'rack and ruin' - I'm not a local, and can only comment on one visit, but for the brief time I was there, the pub appeared clean and pleasant enough - Yes its a chain pub, and the choice at the bar is very limited, but the Smethwicks bitter was its usual bland but reasonable standard (Not the pub's fault).
Decent place for a 'safe bet', but nothing amazing.
