This award recognises a gastropub with excellent service, atmosphere, exceptional food and a stand out drinks offering.
Last year’s One To Watch gastropub was the Victoria in Oxshott, Surrey where upon entering the pub, guests can expect a quintessential British experience throughout.
The dining areas have a traditional feel but with modern and comfortable décor that all points towards the investment that has taken place.
Got what it takes?
A classic British menu gives comfort with dishes such as wild halibut, clams, mussels and foraged sea vegetable broth; braised ox cheek, beef fillet, crispy potato, turnip and mushrooms, crispy pig’s head, piccalilli, carrot and cucumber.

Owned by brothers Aaron and Callum of Zymurgorium Group, the venue’s opulent interior oozes personality with the theme of birds throughout. The bar also boasts its own Absinthe parlour.
