user reviews of Victoria Inn, Derby

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Apparently, "Derby is the best place in the world to drink real ale" - not if you go into this pub it isn't ! All the three hand pumps were off when I visited (which was a pity, because glimpsing the turned round clips they did look interesting).

In fact, the whole pub just seems to be an afterthought to the music venue. For instance, you have to go past the stage to get to the toilets. The whole place is a bit run down, particularly the toilets. [ Posters advertising last years gigs, etc ]

However, did have a very reasonable bowl of chilli for my pains.

With a train to catch imminent didn't have time to find the Railway. Anyway, not closed, very much open, bright, music a bit loud but the Mr Grundy's beer was in good form. Another one I'd be happy to return to.

Pub now closed, with any prospective lessees invited to apply to Admiral Taverns - I would therefore expect one or two further tenants to attempt to make a go of it before Admiral cash in by selling the building/land to developers, as is their standard operating procedure. Much like the nearby George, in fact.

I'm not sure if the Vic remains in the Enterprise Stable or whether they've sold it on, as the pub has recently had a bit of a re-fit and a change of signage, which no longer mentions the Pubco. Not much else has changed and the Vic remains a pub of two halves - quiet, dim, faintly grubby pub for people waiting to change train or bus by day and rock pub by night. The latter must be where the money is, as for anyone wanting a quick pint or two between trains the prospect of paying �2.85 for an average pint of Bass or GK IPA cannot appeal, particularly when the Station/Alex and Brunswick are all within a spit of the station, have a better range and charge less.
So, a definite plus for Derby that the council failed to flatten the Vic, as was planned recently, and a pub that a music buff would appreciate, as the photos on the walls testify to the many bands that played here on their way to stardom, but one that is otherwise fairly unremarkable.
