Best Pub 2014 - DesignMyNight Awards

The Victoria may come fully equipped with its own ghost but you'd be hard pushed to be scared away by this 19th Century theatre pub in Birmingham city centre. 

Characteristic and quirky murals cover the walls in this pub, making it a charismatic place to nip for after work drinks, but there's more to discover. With oodles of vintage lampshades made of bowler hats and birdcages hanging from the ceiling to bunting and a deep rich purple twang smothering the walls; The Victoria is an indulgent venue on the eyes, prepped for Birmingham's young and creative crowd after a modern bohemian hang-out.

Whilst you're scoffing on their Vicky's Kitchen Sourdough pizza menu and slurping a cold craft beer, there's entertainment and events to be found upstairs in their raucous gig venue. Film and music buffs could have a tempting offer on their hands too as The Victoria also offers an exciting taste of quiz nights in Birmingham. Their 'Sound and Vision' quiz on a Tuesday evening is perfect for those looking to put what they've seen and heard to the test. At only £1 per team member, it's way cheaper than a trip to the cinema and twice as fun.

Good range of beers and Whiskies. Not bad on wine either. Cocktails are fun and not expensive. Food is solid pub stuff, burger and pizza, but not amazing. Has good quiz night and a great Book Group. Friday and Saturday DJ are good fun.

A regular favourite for a Friday and Saturday night with fantastic DJs. Have eaten here twice and was impressed - really decent burgers served in lovely brioche bun and well cooked fries.

Quirky great little pub, with interesting fit out. great cocktails range of beers and bar snacks (flavored scratchings). Bar is small so service can be a bit slow but its worth the wait.

This place had a hearty crowd and banging tunes. If you're a girly girl and love applying make up it's probs not for you (it can get VERY sweaty). Didn't have to pay to get in which was a plus!

I love this place, It's so quirky with it's great range of drinks from real ale, to a "Jimi Hendrick's" it's absolutely top notch!! I love the room round the back with comfy sofa's and really unique artworks coating the place

Nipped in for a quick drink after work and found myself here 'til close. A bit hard to find in Brum, but definitely an amazing place once you do find it!

Went to a whisky night here which was really cool. Tucked away and looks a bit like an old mans pub but worth going in. Very cool and pretty trendy! Good drinks and good party pub
