Real Ales, Great Ciders and the Best of Gins

We are proud to offer a constantly changing range of real ales, many of which are sourced from within a 20 mile radius of the Victoria Inn. Add to this the best selection of gins outside of London and a choice of draught West Country ciders and popular bottled varities too.

For lager drinkers we have an equally good selection with Pravha, Kronenbourg & Fosters on draught and Peroni in bottles. We serve a wide range of wines including South African and Australian, 4 to 5 red and white wines by the glass and we offer Crabbie's, a comprehensive range of spirits, mixers and soft drinks.

The Victoria Inn West Marden is proud that "We're in it!" - the 2017 CAMRA Good Beer Guide

We're in it again!

We are very excited to be featured in the Good Beer Guide 2018. Only pubs which serve the best quality real ale are selected by CAMRA members to be featured in the Good Beer Guide so we are very proud to have been recognised in this way once again.

Gorgeous Gins

We want to ensure your G&T or cocktail is just right so here at the Victoria Inn we serve only the best tonics and mixers. Choose from East Imperial, Fever-Tree or Schweppes. Each comes with its own recommended pairings like East Imperial Old World Tonic is ideal with the more bold herbaceous new western style gins, Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic works well with juniper-rich navy strength gins and Schweppes Original Indian Tonic is great with London dry gins.
