The Arms

About Us (for future)


Your British “Local”

Located in the historic Lord Nelson Hotel and Suites, The Arms (formerly known as Victory Arms Pub), features traditional British fare and international dishes. Very much a “Public House”, The Arms is always open to passersby. It offers a warm, comfortable atmosphere steeped in British heritage. Stop in for lunch, dinner, an English-style weekend breakfast or a nightcap any day of the week.

The Arms seats 85 and can accommodate a significantly greater number of guests for standing cocktails and receptions. it’s the ideal place for office parties, birthday celebrations, anniversaries, reunions and holiday gatherings. We will gladly reserve tables for small to medium-sized groups with 24 hours’ notice.
