The Britannia on a summers afternoon, what can I say? Lovely and sunny, plenty of seats, great for a pint and a spot of people watching. A real Lakeland watering hole.. Lunch is reliable, a bit pricey but worth it for the location. Watch for serving times and the afternoon bar menu, not as much variety as lunch.

four and half stars from us following our 3 night stay. as the photos on their website suggest, this is a nice traditional pub in an idyllic Lakeland setting. there are wonderful views and walks straight out of the front door. sitting on the front patio is a wonderful place to be for a drink and meal in the sunshine....

We stopped here in the middle of our walk for a quick drink. The choice of local real ales was excellent. It was just a shame that I was driving as our walk would've been postponed to stay here and sample more of the offerings. Great pub in a great location.

Stopped off here for lunch while walking because it was highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. The steak burger was possibly the best I've ever had and was cooked to perfection. I'd definitely like to go back for an evening meal in the future. Booking recommended at busy times as it's not very big!

This was our second visit to the Britannia Inn for a two night, three day walking trip. We stayed in the same room (8) which was bijou but clean with a modern en suite. The pub is rustic and original with an excellent location on the edge of the Langdale Valley. It is only minutes away from some of the... More

Had a wonderful stay here, very welcoming walker's pub which has bags of character and charm. Retaining all of it's character downstairs was a breath of fresh air from the many Country Living catalogue furnished pubs there are about. Our bedroom was more modern which worked really well, so you had a hotel style guest room with an excellent shower... More

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend in Elterwater and every day we visited this idyllic little pub. We ate here twice and the food was reasonably priced and tasted amazing. All the staff were friendly, the service was fantastic and the atmosphere was cozy. We will certainly be revisiting - it's the perfect place to eat, drink and be... More

Had a great evening meal, the lamb dish, a lamb shank , is delicious. Disappointed with the profiteroles though, which came with squirty cream, why not proper cream? We had to book a time slot, so no good if you want to linger.

Spent three nights here. Bedroom and bathroom spotless. Breakfasts as plentiful as you could want with a huge choice of goodies. Evening meals excellent and a great choice of real ales. Always busy and if you want to eat here you do need to book or be prepared to be disappointed. We'll be back!
