The Victoria was a beerhouse situated next to Longfield Dyeworks.

The licencee from 1903 until closure in 1939 was Fred Dyson.

It was initially referred to the Compenssation Authority for closure on the grounds of redudnancy following the Brewster Sessions of 1938[2] but was granted a reprieve. However, it was referred again the following year and was closed.

It seems likely that the beerhouse's owners, Bentley & Shaw Ltd, then sold the property to the dyeworks who then demolised it to allow their works to be expanded.
