This British pub is a recent entry to the Old City scene. Located at the corner of Front/Chestnut, Victoria Freehouse exemplifies what one would find in Jolly Olde England. It is a rather sleek and modern interior: a long room dominated by a shiny bar. There are tables along the opposite wall and towards the back.

But the beer selection .... excellent taps, including Speckled Hen Nitro, of many British beers. They offer two sizes: 10 ounce and imperial pint. The bottle list goes way beyond the normal though with several hard-to-find stuff. Belhaven Stout in cans, anyone? Of course, we all know the joke about "British cuisine" being an oxymoron, but the food is hearty and delish: Fish n Chips, Sausage n Chips and many favorites. They have Sunday roast beef specials and offer those lovely English puddings for a dessert. One could pretend to be in a Dickens novel with Oliver Twist approaching the bartender asking: "Please sir, could I have more .... porter?"
