We have a couple of Victoria Wine shops in Newcastle, and I think they are reasonably good. At Christmas they had an offer of Lanson Black Label Champagne buy two get one free that worked out at under £15 a bottle. Their price for a single bottle was £21.99 whicj about two pounds dearer than Tescos and much dearer that Mr Aktar next to Chichester Metro Sounth Shields who used to sell it for £14.99 a bottle, but I no longer live there.
They have a wide range of wines, but you usually benefit from the offers they have one. One recent one was a hungarian wine called "The Unpronounceable Grape" , a dry white wine at £3.49 a bottle or £6 for two. It's excellent and stands well with the more expensive wines, such as Koonunga Hill or Lindemanns.
Their beers selection is limited , but the currently do Murphy's at 8 cans for a fiver that suits me down to the ground. They have similar offers on Carling and Boddingtons as well as a number of bottled beers.
There is a reasonable range of spirits including flavoured vodka.
They also stock corkscrews, which you never think about until you need one and they do an adequate one for about £2.99.
If you feel the munchies coming on they stock crisps and sweets, though I don't go in for these much.
Evemn though they're a chain , they're pleasant , the staff are helpful, and you can usually pick up you drinks and a reasonable price.
