We arrived at 12.30 to the busy pub but managed to secure a table and menus however fifteen minutes later no one arrived to take our order-- no one informed us we should order at the bar and pay in full before being served. We realised that the reason for this --- few people would wait 3/4 of an hour to be served and then pay for the worst lunch we have had for a long ... more

Most un-welcoming pub I have ever had the mis-fortune to visit! arrived at lunch time with my partner and our very welbehaved 3yr old son. First words out of the waiters mouth "hope that pushchair folds down" (we have a small mclaren pushchair). There were only 2 or 3 tables taken so plenty of choice but no, we were shoved up the corner, when we asked if we could sit elsewhere the waiter told me again that we would have to sit out of the way due to the puschair, 3 or 4 times he asked if it would fold down to the point where I told him where I would stick said pushchair and went next door to the Amber rooms where we were welcomed and had a lovely meal.

We are two couples in our early fifties who have just returned from a short break in the Manchester/ Chester region. Chester is such a beautiful city with friendly people-so what a pity our day was spoiled when we decided to have lunch at The Victoria Pub on Watergate Row.

Appalled to find that this establishment is family hostile. We were refused entry on a Saturday lunchtime because we had children and a small, collapsible pushchair.We were all set for a relaxing lunch in the rear courtyard, only to be summarily asked to leave on various grounds, from "we're not licensed for children" (they are) to "the pushchair takes up too much room" (maybe a reverse Tardis effect here - the courtyard looked to have enough unused space for a bus).Discussions with Trading Standards officers are ongoing.Definitely one to avoid!

We arrived in Chester just before Midday and I was already hungry so we were looking for somewhere to eat. I fancied some pub grub and upon reaching The Cross in the centre of Chester, we noticed The Victoria and decided to try it out. The Victoria is situated on the Rows (for those of you unfamiliar with Chester, there are shops above the street-level shops - in other words, a street above a street!). The Victoria can be found by The Cross (a Medieval Stone Cross) and up the steps by St. Peter's Church. We walked in and found the pub to be quiet with a handful of customers having a drink and chatting with the barman. I thought the pub was small, ... Read the complete review
