Victory Arms Pub
Housed in the venerable Lord Nelson Hotel, this homey pub sticks with old-style in food and atmosphere. The menu remains true to England's "meat-and-two-veg" fare, with a Sunday roast served daily, complete with Yorkshire pudding. Other hearty pub fare includes Chicken Pot Pie, Shepherd's Pie or Steak & Mushroom Pie. Of course there's bangers & mash and plougman's lunch. For the fainter of heart, there are dinner salads. For dessert, you will find bread & butter pudding and real English sticky pudding.
I was hoping for a relaxing meal at the Victory Arms Pub. Unfortunately, it was TERRIBLE. I ordered a lobster roll - it was dripping with grease, disgusting, I don't expect this from a lobster roll. The service was HORRIBLE. The patron next to me was allergic to lemon and the server did not pay attention to this important detail. Then he stopped paying attention to me altogether. There were 4 patrons in the place with 2 servers. One patron came in, was served, ate his whole dinner, got served his bill while I sat in the booth beside him with my coat and hat on waiting to be served. The servers although paying attention to him briefly spent most of this time texting and talking. I complained and they were aggressive back to me, going on and on about how they weren't talking and texting. NEVER GO TO THIS PUB. It is not worth the high price and terrible service. Definitely leaves you with a BAD TASTE IN YOUR MOUTH!
It was cozy and relaxing yet lively and interesting. The food was delicious and affordable, especially dessert. My recommendations would be the spinach or crispy chicken salad, or french onion soup to start, followed by the salmon (YUM!), chicken pot pie, or any one of the pastas. For dessert we split the chocolate cheesecake,the apple crisp, and the warm gingerbread (there were five of us). They were all amazing. Overall great experience.
