Grilled cheese, pickle fries and other pub favourites. Growler fills. Family friendly. Didn’t see any mice. Server forgot about us but I think she just got slammed.

To be honest, I found the pub to be quite dark and dingy, not quite what I was expecting. I ordered the braised beef and gnocci. The gnocci turned out to be quite chewy, the peas and mushrooms looked and tasted like they were out...More

On prior visits to Victoria we'd enjoyed dining at Swan's. Unfortunately, it's changed, and definitely for the worse. Previously there had been a fairly extensive dinner menu of full meals. The menu now comprise mainly small bar food items. The one item which did catch...More
