The New Victoria – Manchester

38 Kingfisher Close, Longsight, M12 4PW

By the A6 in Longsight, an area awash with a lack of fully functioning pubs, sits the former New Victoria.

Its titular type, simply a pale shadow, on a neglected fascia board.

Its doors now weeping vivid pink and green painted tears.

Soon to be renamed Dribble Drabble, the final indignity in an undignified life.

Once again I leave it to a Beer in the Evening review to stamp the earth down.

“Entered this pub and was confronted by a colourful collection of locals. Your humble narrator ventured forth and enquired about the real ale in question, Barnsley Bitter at 3.8%, pisswater and indeed cheap as mentioned by the previous contributor.

I left without purchasing, the desperate interior and odd inhabitants leaving me in a state of depression, the weak beer on offer providing no sense of relief!”
