Buckingham Arms, Victoria
This handsome pub which dates from the early 19th century and is situated on the back streets of Victoria is one of only ten pubs to have appeared continuously in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide since it's first publication. This wasn't enough, however, to exclude it from the relentless rota of owner Wells & Young's refurbishments. Having seen many other Young's refits which have erred significantly on the trendier 'wine and food' side of the pub trade, we had a certain amount of trepidation for the Buckingham. Thankfully, it is still a pub - after all, local civil servants still like a good pint (which you'll certainly get here) - and the original features are still more or less intact, with many now gleaming after a good polish. The blue velvet bench seating is absent however, replaced by additional chairs and tables, while the revamped menu still offers reasonable prices rather liked the old Buckingham, but the newest version is perfectly acceptable too.
