1655hrs and thirsty after my trek from The Flying Horse. Fairly quiet with a few locals chatting around the bar area. My last visit here 10+ years ago Hopdaemon beers ruled the roost.

Canterbury Ales (sometimes badged as Canterbrew) - Burnaps Beard3.80PoorThis shouldn't have touched the sides but I found myself nursing this down. Not in good condition at all for this nutty ruby ale.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not TriedIt would've been rude to plump for this over the local beer.

Thought we would try Sunday lunch here as my recent liquid visits have been very pleasant. Quite busy but not crowded - but poorly staffed. Food was good and good value - but service was dismal unfortunately. Only 2 ales on today.

Early afternoon - a good few eaters plus a chap at the bar who doesn’t like micro pubs (he was drinking lager).

Late afternoon - a few drinkers in. Bar person wasn't put off by my derogatory comment about the ubiquitous Doom Bar and told me the story of the Burnap's Beard brew - named after a local philanthropist who has donated a 4 figure sum for a beer named after him with 10p a pint also going to the bone marrow transplant charity.

For a midweek lunchtime visit it there were a few in the bar and restaurant area. We had a tasty meal and I particularly enjoyed the home-made steak and ale pie.

There were a few people inside, like myself and my wife, but many more outside enjoying the sunny warm day when we visited at lunchtime. We had a very good meal and usual attentive service. It was interesting to see 4 real ales on.

I still refer to this place as the Victoria although it has not officially been called that for about forty years or more. This was towards the end of a very sunny day and the garden area by the river was producing a lot of trade although the inside was busy as well. I checked the railway timetable and found that I had time to savour one pint comfortably without a rush.
