In the late 70s and in the 80s, (IIRC), the Vic was known locally as Veggy's, the governor, John, possibly had, or used to have, an interest, family or otherwise, in a fruit and veg stall I always thought.
He had another pub in Wild's Rents that his wife Gill used to run, it was called Gilly's.
At the time, the local guys used to say, "If you can't score in in Veggy's or Gilly's. you're dead!"
