Concierge Choice: Victoria Gastro Pub
“In its simplest form, a Gastro Pub is ‘a place with a warm, inviting pub atmosphere that serves sophisticated, yet unpretentious food.’ The main objective is to serve innovative twists on classic pub fare that stress quality and freshness with every recipe.” “It’s a busy spot for happy hour and I can see why. They have an extensive beer and wine list- I have tried a few of the different craft beers, all of which were very tasty. Among the appetizers were several different types of sliders, including barbeque pulled pork and crab cake, which was unique.”
Tip: The lunch offering is only available Monday-Friday, 11am-4pm.
