The Victoria is located in Derby city centre and has excellent visibility across the city, opposite the main train station and only a short walk to Derby College & Pride Park.  The pub benefits from it’s location generating footfall from commuters, students and rail users. Surrounding the pub is mixed housing with a population of locals and students. Derby is a city located in the East Midlands. In the 2011 census, the city had a population of 248,700.

Pub Layout

The pub has two trading areas allowing the licensee to differentiate the business hosting many activities and catering to all its customers.  To the left is the bar area providing a traditional drinking space whilst to the right is the lounge with high backed leather armchairs and an open fire. To the rear of the pub is a newly refurbished function room which has been utilized for both private events and live music. There is an excellent range of keg beers, lagers & ciders and a well established cask ale market with a thriving range of premium spirits.

The pub is mainly drinks focussed however there is a small food offer supplied from a galley kitchen.  There’s a great opportunity to further develop the food into this pub including breakfasts taking advantage of a 7.00 am license. The majority of business comes from early afternoon and evening trade, but with the permitted hours allowing the pub to open for business throughout the day proving a great opportunity to build on the overall offer utilising the extended license.
