We are proud to offer a constantly changing range of real ales, many of which are sourced from within a 20 mile radius of the Victoria Inn. Add to this the best selection of gins outside of London and a choice of draught West Country ciders and popular bottled varities too.
For lager drinkers we have an equally good selection with Pravha, Kronenbourg & Fosters on draught and Peroni in bottles. We serve a wide range of wines including South African and Australian, 4 to 5 red and white wines by the glass and we offer Crabbie's, a comprehensive range of spirits, mixers and soft drinks.
We are very excited to be featured in the Good Beer Guide 2018. Only pubs which serve the best quality real ale are selected by CAMRA members to be featured in the Good Beer Guide so we are very proud to have been recognised in this way once again.
Toby, the Vic inn's landlord, takes a great interest in checking the temperature, appearance, aroma and taste of all the beers we serve, all requirements for CAMRA. See our beer history for an idea of the beers we like to serve.

We have 3 or 4 real ales on tap, usually including a light beer, a good session beer and a stronger ale. Beers can change at short notice but currently we have:
Light and refreshing. Delicate, grassy and earthy hop aroma. Bitter and balanced malt flavours.
Brewed at the Harvey's Brewery East Sussex.
Initially malty giving way to a lingering bitterness and a long hoppy finish. An excellent session beer that grew out of Oakleaf Brewery's Quercus Folium.
Brewed at the Fallen Acorn Brewery Gosport, Hants.
A classic blonde beer, clean and crisp. Loaded with floral hop aroma, a pale malt flavour and a pleasing dry and bitter finish.
Brewed at the Langham Brewery Sussex.
A classic pale ale with a golden amber colour and a complex citrus and hoppy aroma.
From the Yorkshire brewery Timothy Taylor that has won Champion Beer of Britain four times. Enough said!

With so many to choose, our gins are constantly changing but as well as old favourites like Gordons we like to offer more local products like Chilgrove handcrafted using the finest botanicals together with a neutral spirit distilled from grapes, relative newcomers like Pinkster a wonderful combination of botanicals and fresh raspberries and international flavours like Gin Mare uniting various Mediterranean cultures by utilising their botanical stars such as Arbequina olives, Italian basil, Greek thyme, Turkish rosemary and Spanish citrus fruits.
We want to ensure your G&T or cocktail is just right so here at the Victoria Inn we serve only the best tonics and mixers. Choose from East Imperial, Fever-Tree or Schweppes. Each comes with its own recommended pairings like East Imperial Old World Tonic is ideal with the more bold herbaceous new western style gins, Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic works well with juniper-rich navy strength gins and Schweppes Original Indian Tonic is great with London dry gins. Try your own favourite pairing or one of our extra special Vic Inn cocktails.
