I've never been to The Vic, but I was surprised but how spacious it was, the open-plan does wonders for the pub. The menu was very extensive, making it rather hard to choose.
The girls decided to start with a plate of squid as their entree, followed by mains. Unfortunately I can't eat squid due to allergies but I was told it was very delicious, perfectly spiced and cooked; not rubbery at all.
They are definitely generous with their servings. I ordered the beef and pumpkin salad - the beef was well cooked, the salad was fresh, and the dressing went perfectly with it.
R ordered the smoked salmon with chirozo - again delicious and fresh
a couple of the girls had the pasta - which smelt absolutely delicious (and according to the girls the pasta was well made, wasn't too salty or oily, but apprently wasn't exactly 5 stars, but pretty good for pub food!)
A ordered the steak sandwich, which was rather hearty and although was suppose to be smaller servings, was definitely more than enough for dinner
and then there was the chilli mussels - which wasn't too spicy but were fresh and plentiful (as seen above by the grinning L with the plate full of chilli mussels).
Overall, the Vic is a nice pit stop before heading off somewhere. It wasn't too busy, but the service wasn't brilliant, the food was a little delayed, but for pub food it wasn't too bad, it's filling and the serves are generous, and not too badly priced for Subiaco.
