Went for lunch with friends on Wednesday. All ordered our food at the same time from the bar, wasn't a complicated order either we all ordered sandwiches. 2 of the sandwiches came out rather quickly and looked really nice. I was told when the waitress brought my friends food that mine would be "just a minute" , 20 minutes had... More

My wife and I decided to have a late lunch/early tea, and called in at around 3.30pm. We were greeted very politely and ordered ham hock from the special winter menu. The food was served quite quickly and it was delicious, and plenty of it. We finished the meal off with a desert, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and had... More

We were greeted but a "stern looking" manager who informed us that there would be a 45 min wait despite the fact that the place looked relatively quiet. We walked out!

We said we would return after a great experience last time, so we did and were disappointed. Service was very slow considering it was a quiet Saturday lunchtime though in fairness when food finally arrived it was pretty good. We will.perhaps return but will give Spencer Arms a try next time.

I hadn't been to 'The Brit' in a long while so I was quite looking forward to seeing what all the fuss was about. Well, don't get too excited. Although I cannot fault our waitress what so ever, she had the busiest section in the place but always served us with a smile and was well mannered. The service was... More

Lovely food and nicely decorated - went for Saturday lunch. Bar staff were incredibly slow - we stood at bar for over 10 minutes and it wasn't busy but didn't feel like any urgency in serving. Once we'd ordered food was quick in coming out but had to ask for cutlery as waitress had brought 3 of our meals and... More

We thought we would give The Britannia one last shot because it's close by, beautifully decorated and a nice atmosphere. The last 2 times we came the service was awful and on the last occasion they ran out of spoons so we were given forks to eat our icecream with. This time, the following happened: 1. We waited half an... More

Well done to the staff team at The Brit for another great evening of dining and chatting with friends. The good was especially good as was the very affordable wine. We had a well appointed table for six; a lovely time was had by all.

Extremely dissatisfied with this gastro pub. Took over an hour for my second course to arrive, clearly they had lost my order. No offer to redress that situation, and to cap it off some part of the meal were wringing wet with oil. A real shame that this venue has so many guest that are just passing through that customer...

My wife and I visited the Britannia last night for Valentines. It has been a while since we have been and it was a little quieter than I thought it would have been on Velentines night. We chose the special Valentine set 4 course menu and it was fantastic. We had a lovely evening with hood service and great food.... More
