The Victoria 1

Squaremeal Review of The Victoria ?

With a popular primary school behind and some of Richmond’s largest houses around the corner, The Victoria has its market on its doorstep. From breakfast to supper time, the place hums with activity, though is seldom overstretched. Celeb chef Paul Merrett’s menu ticks all the right boxes – properly poached eggs and decent coffee to start the day, moving on to appealing bar nibbles and snacks (almonds, king prawns a la plancha, chorizo) or a full-on menu. Merrett’s cooking has always been a draw, and with the likes of pan-fried sea trout on mussel and celeriac chowder, high-quality steaks with proper béarnaise sauce, and a Sunday slow-roast pork with apple sauce, he’s keeping everyone happy. The large enclosed playground allows children to let off steam at the weekend while their frazzled parents pore gratefully over the wine list or sample one of the cask ales from a choice line-up.

Editor's pick I went there for a quiet business lunch in a pub and I was surprised by the quality of the food. We had two starters each and they were delicious. They make some delicious soft drinks too. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Definitely somewhere to go back to when I have more time to enjoy a leisurely afternoon.

Somehow we managed to wangle a booking here on Mothers' Day 2012, only a few weeks before the event. The staff couldn't have been more helpful at getting us a table and we were happy to get there for 12noon. It was a cold day, and we were chilly, so asked for the heating to be turned up. The staff were so helpful, and the owner arrived a few minutes later with a portable blow heater which warmed us up a treat. The food was outstanding. Although my four year old wasn't keen on the pitta bread, I...

We had lunch at the victoria on Sunday and we thought it was excellent. It was obviously a local favourite as lots of young families with their kids, and everyone having a happy time. We will return one evening as it looks like it has lots of atmosphere. The staff were delightful and we got excellent service – keep up the good work!!

Following a visit with my Son and a subsequent visit with my wife, I can wholeheartedly recomend the ‘Victoria’ as an ideal place to eat. Mike, the resturant manager found the time to talk to us, a rareity nowadays, following our meal, and gave us an insight into how the resturant has been run since they re-opened under new management and a refit. The Steak I had was excellent, the bernaise was to die for and the ‘thrice fried chips’ were the best chips I've eaten, well done Paul! I would highly...

Having been here to celebrate NYE 2008 (which was a complete success) I can say with extreme confidence that you will not find a better pub around, certainly not in South West London. I have been here a number of times now with my girlfriend for dinner, and slowley started to bring friends and family along. The place is warm, very inviting and the staff friendly, but not overly so and welcome you with open arms. Food first then – the menu is not too big and serves classics such as Collar of Bacon...
