You never seem to find what you’re looking for, no matter how hard you try. You are looking for all the characteristics of the local rustic village pub, with the addition of quality locally sourced meat and vegetables & an atmosphere that’s hard to leave behind. Ssshhh………… The Victory Inn is what everybody is looking for! The Victory Inn set in the idyllic village of Wickham St Pauls, three miles from Halstead & Sudbury. Log Fires in the Winter & Cricket on the Green in the Lazy Summer Days are just a small example of what makes this quaint village pub & its location so popular with both residents & visitors from a far. Wonderful gardens to seat over 100 guests. With locally renowned Head Chef Paul Drury back by popular demand heading the kitchen team, they are producing an exciting new evening menu
