New Victoria, Kingfisher Close

The New Victoria estate pub facing onto the A6 Stockport Road was built in the 1970s to replace the small, original Victoria Inn, seen here in 1969 as a Groves & Whitnalls public house.  Its official address is on Kingfisher Close but the main pub entrance is on the main road.

The New Victoria has recently closed, due to the declining fortunes of owners, Oakwell Brewery.  It did, naturally, offer cask ale in the form of Barnsley Bitter or Oakwell Dark Mild, but its closure now leaves Longsight with just the Gold Cup in this once well-pubbed part of town.
