The Victoria Freehouse in Old City

2013-03-22 12.09.45

We decided to try the newest reasonably priced spot in Old City for lunch this week.

You can find the entrance easily on Front Street by the Union Jack hanging at the entrance. When you step inside the freehouse or the victoria which ever it ends up getting nicknamed, is all Old City. Exposed brick walls and wooden pew bankettes and thankfully only one flatscreen tv behind the bar. (I still don’t understand the need.) The music — british invasion.

The theme isn’t over the top thank goodness. A little loveseat for waiting at the door and a modern take on vintage lighting. It is a bit dark unless you sit by the door.

We shared the Welsh Rarebit which was especially tasty with the hot mustard, a burger and chips and a pot of tea.

Lovely service and good food. The chips were perfect. No room for lunch we’ll have to do that another time.

Happy to have another eatery in Old City that isn’t just about beer and getting drunk.
