The Victoria Inn in Peckham has set its reopening date for October 10, following a major refurbishment to bring the property into the 21st century.
The historic 19th century pub with rooms, which first opened in 1878, has been given a ‘contemporary refresh’, mixing its old heritage – such as its horse shoe bar – with new modern touches like its new Scandi-chic interiors.
The property, situated in the heart of South London’s Peckham, was previously home to 19 bedrooms, but following the refurbishment this number has been reduced to 15, making each room slightly larger in size.
The rooms have been created by ADS Design, who used clean lines and tones of off-white and slate, with pops of yellow to give off the Scandinavian feel.
Each bedroom is home to a Nespresso machine, while check-in will aim to be informal with no fixed reception.
The restaurant at The Victoria Inn will reopen with a new food and drink menu, including an all-day menu curated by head chef Dan Smith, who is aiming to put a twist on traditionally comforting dishes.
There will also be a new private dining space that can seat up to 15 and will be targeted towards the party crowd and demand for supper clubs.
Speaking about the re-opening, general manager Joe Sheasgreen commented “We are delighted to bring The Victoria Inn back to its former glory as a relaxed and friendly pub in which to enjoy a beer or a comforting meal in our beautifully refurbished restaurant. With fifteen stylish guestrooms we want to celebrate the vibrancy of Peckham and show case the area to our resident guests as well as remaining a firm favourite with locals. We are extremely excited to open our doors to the Peckham community and beyond.”
