Queen Victoria Pub
Queen Victoria Pub dishes up traditional British sandwiches, pies, and entrees 24 hours a day. Secret-recipe beer batter envelops crispy fried fish paired with British chips, and bangers join mashed potatoes and baked beans for teatime and soft-spoken discussions in which the word “balderdash” is politely thrown around. Savory pies are baked in-house with combos such as meat and mushrooms, steak and kidney, and cheese and onion beneath tender puff-pastry crusts. Whether sidled up to the bar or nestled in their seats, guests quench thirsts with 20-ounce brews such as London Pride, Harp, and Smithwick's while surveying British sports on the televisions and absorbing sound waves emitted by the resident Beatles cover-band, Revolver, who plays every Wednesday through Saturday from 9 p.m. to midnight.
