Queen Victoria Pub - Located in Walford E20 (in the East end of London), the the Queen Victoria Pub (a.k.a. "The Vic") was the local pub where all the neighbors of the square mingled and shared their successes and problems on the popular British soap opera THE EASTENDERS/BBC/1985+.

The initial focus of the series was the Fowler family and their day-to-day struggles with unemployment, overcrowded living conditions, teenage pregnancy, mental breakdown, etc. The Queen Victoria was their refuge from the world's troubles.

This British import first aired nationally on the PBS networks in 1988 and later on the BBC Cable channel. The Vic was later run by  by Peggy Mitchell and her son, Grant. Pauline Fowler's niece Mary Flaherty lives at the Vic and also tends bar.
