What Are The Best Pubs In Victoria?

We're doing an alphabetical pub crawl of London. This month, we're up to part 'V' and have selected the nearby areas of Victoria and Vauxhall, forming a victory sandwich with a Pimlico filling. We asked you to vote for your favourite pubs in the area, and we can now reveal the results...and they're rather one-sided. Venues in Victoria got far more votes than places the other side of the river. We're not sure why. Vauxhall has some fine pubs — perhaps a higher proportion of readers are familiar with Victoria. Dunno. But we follow the readers' votes, so this is effectively going to be a Victoria pub crawl — we'll do a dedicated Vauxhall crawl at some future point.

See further down the article for how to join us on the pub crawl.

The Top 10 Pubs In Victoria, Pimlico and Vauxhall

1. Cask Bar and Kitchen (62 votes)
2. The Phoenix (19 votes)
=3. The Marquis of Westminster (15 votes)
=3. The Queen's Arms (15 votes)
5. The Speaker (12 votes)
6. The Windsor Castle (11 votes)
7. The Fentiman Arms (9 votes)
8. Cask & Glass (8 votes)
=9. The Jugged Hare (7 votes)
=9. St George's Tavern (7 votes)

So Cask bar runs away with it.

Map of Nominated Pubs

Green stars are our top places, which we'll visit on the pub crawl; red pins indicate other nominations. Note: a red pin doesn't mean it's a bad pub — in every case, at least one person nominated it as their favourite.
