Visited this pub again after a walk with my 2 boys (6&9) for a welcome late lunch. Food excellent, staff watching outdoor seating to cater for any need, beer selection fantastic (and I work for a brewery!). Visited here for the first time 6 years ago and standards remain very high. Can't wait to come back.

We have just returned from a lovely three day break here. It is an excellent base for walking with numerous hikes from the door. Turn up, leave your car in the residents' car park and forget about it until you leave. We were fortunate enough to have very good weather and on the one occasion when it rained late afternoon...

It was recommended locally to us and we found the food tasty pub fayre. The lamb and the steak pie were lovely and tasty as was the sticky toffee pudding for dessert. The dining area was very basic and a little crammed in. We left feeling full, enjoyed the beers and service was very fast if you want a quick... More

We took two dogs with us, they weren't the best behaved and had never been away before but no-one made it a problem. The room was lovely and clean and towels were changed daily. Breakfast was lovely. The Inn was very lively and obviously very popular in the evening time, ensuring a good atmosphere.

The Britannia Pub is the centre of life in this tiny village. A favourite pub of ours for very many years when we did a lot of fell walking and now also good for less demanding walks along the beautiful Langdale Valley with its lovey river and the truly beautiful Elterwater Lake. The food is always good with delicious bar... More

For food, drink, pub ambiance and location, the Britannia cannot be beaten. It is a great pub, every time I've visited, both food and beer have been very good. On this visit, we stayed here for the first time and won't be going back. The service was dis-interested (staff too busy perhaps?), the breakfast very average and the room way... More

We had a very nice lunch sitting in the sun watching the sheep. My husband loved the 'noggy' and we both enjoyed a sandwich and cheesy chips. We are considering staying here in the Autumn as it is very well situated for walking and looks very cosy.

Birthday treat night away from/with my wife. Beautifully situated in the Langdale Valley in the picture perfect village of Elterwater. This visit was our first there for a few years as we now live in the area and it was a birthday treat. The inn has a great range of ales and the room was comfortable with a new shower-room.... More

Stayed for 1 night while in the lakes, were lucky that was beautiful evening so could sit outside as inside rather small. Food was British pub food at its best with the best sticky toffee pudding ever! Rooms were small (as to be expected in an old building) but modernised tastefully. Good breakfast but shame no Haggis! Would definitely stay... More

Nice evening meal outside. Food of good standard and stayed for deserts. All nicely prepared and presented. Seemed a bit crowded in the bar area which allowed dogs. The restaurant area seemed quieter.
