Rather disappointing visit. My fish and chips had obviously been sitting around and I had to send it back as it was lukewarm. Friends dishes were given an OK. My wife said her vegetarian dishes was boring. Starters were fine if somewhat miniscule.

Three of us went here for lunch. The food was ok, reasonably priced and didn't seem too much like chain pub food. Chicken and sage &onion stuffing pie was tasty. For lunchtime, not too busy, but the service was very slow. Waitress was running around doing everything, but clearly they needed more staff to help her! I would go again,... More

What a beautiful evening, a clean venue, friendly staff and delicious food which was served beautifully and tasted delicious. The food was hot and came within good time.

The setting for this pub is lovely especially in the summer, with the canal at the back. Food is good but service can sometimes be a bit slow.

Our experience was poor from the time of booking to finish. They did not seem to know that we had booked the festive menu even though we had specifically booked and paid a deposit for this festive menu in advance. The food was poor quality, this includes chips that were served cold and swimming in fat, parsnips that were raw... More

As a birthday treat we went to The Britannia for sunday lunch with our two daughters, the roast was excellent, the best sunday roast we had had for a while. The surroundings were very welcoming as were the staff. Would go again soon.

As a longstanding customer of the Brittania, having spent the last 7 Chritmas Days there, I had heard some bad reviews lately. Visited for lunch to find a total change of staff, except for Suki as always friendly and efficient. I was served a white sub roll for my gourmet seafood sandwich, not what I would expect. I do hope... More

As per the previous review, a group of 9 of us visited on 1st December 2016. We had pre-ordered the food from the Festive Menu. When the starters came out, they'd clearly been sat on the side for so long, they were luke warm at best. The 2 soups were sent back but we were told we couldn't have replacements... More

Went here for a birthday meal two adults and two children. The meal was booked for 6.30pm which we thought would be enough time for the kids to eat before it was their bedtime. Well we should have thought again. We had to wait nearly an hour between courses. The desert which should only take 10-15 mins to come out... More
