The Victoria Hotel
'Conveniently sited next to Beeston Railway Station near Nottingham, the Victoria provides a range of high-quality food including many vegetarian dishes all day,' says Iain. 'Fourteen real ales and two real ciders are on sale in this fine Victorian architectural gem. Why can't all station pubs be like this? Worth missing a train or two for.'
