The Vic Inn is passionate about being part of its community arranging pub events, providing a venue for community events, supporting any local events and organising trips to Goodwood and Stansted events.
It was great being able to enjoy the Goodwood Revival in the knowledge that we could repair to the Victoria to be able to relax and be treated to good food and wine. The food that you served us was delicious and we felt that we had special treatment. Thank you again and we are already looking forward to next year.
The Victoria Inn West Marden is very close to the world renowned Goodwood sporting estate so our busy events calendar regularly includes Horse Racing, Glorious Goodwood, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival.
Our close proximity to the Stansted estate enhances our events calendar with their stately home, garden shows, Christmas fairs and outdoor theatre which start in early spring and continue through to December.
We offer an excellent pre or après social for all the local events and cater for these with well organised food and drink. We often enhance these events with barbecues and outside bars either within our beautiful garden overlooking the South Downs or at the event location.
We now host several festivals a year but it all started with a real ale festival with the support of CAMRA and Langham's Brewery.
With ample space and friendly attentive waiting staff, our beer garden is the ideal location for festivals throughout the year. The Victoria Inn has hosted various beer, cider, gin and rum festivals. Plus of course there is the Annual West Marden Fest which usually includes live music, a dog show, a quiz and is run in aid of a variety of charities.
There is a great sense of community in West Marden so there is always something being planned or a new challenge to meet throughout the year.
The result is a very active seasonal calendar providing a lot of fun whilst also suppoting a number of worthwhile causes and local charities.
We are always open to new ideas. Everyone is involved and everyone is welcome.
