From the outside you expect this pub to be quaint and full of history but somewhat disappointingly when you go through the door you could be in any one of hundreds of pubs like it. It's decorated and laid out in that 'chain pub' style although I don't think it is part of a chain. There were three cask beers on when we visited, my Cumberland Ale was smashing and my husband's Coniston Bluebird got the thumbs up - Beacon was the other beer. There's a pool table and their sign says they have a 'Clatterbang Alley' though what or where that was I didn't find out :-) They're certainly working hard to woo trade with quiz nights, games nights, live music etc. and we got a warm welcome. All in all a pleasant enough pub that I'll happily return to.

Established in 1870.
The Victoria Inn is at the heart of the tiny coastal shipping village Glasson Dock.
Glasson is an incredibly picturesque location and with an active Dock it entices many tourists and site seers all year round. This has been the case going back over 100 years and the Victoria Inn has supplied the weary traveler and sailor with fine ales and hearty food to boost them on their way. The tradition has continued and everyone is welcome to sit by the open coal fire on a chilly day or bask in the sun courtyard when we are lucky enough to get a few rays.
22 years ago my Mum and Dad (John and Berny Braithwaite) ran what was originally called the Victoria Hotel. This was a bustling, friendly and fun place to be and the heart of a lovely village. After 6 very enjoyable years in the village and going to the local school my parents decided to move to Spain so we had to say good bye to all our great friends and it was always a dream to come back. After many years in Spain I decided to return to the UK and began a career in retail Management then Recruitment but the dream was always at the back of my mind. I still knew many people in the Dock so would often get updates on how the pub was and then one day by a pure twist of fate I met someone from Mitchells and I told them all about my great times at the Vic and in Glasson Dock. A few months later I was approached with the opportunity to return and after lots of soul searching and talks with friends and family I decided to take on the challenge.
