Loved the food...lots of choice, hearty, nothing flash but very well cooked, we were a party of 6 and ate there 2 nights, everything we had good. Breakfast also good. Lovely setting, quiet and lovely views and walking right from the door. Rooms ok, comfortable bed but double not larger so not so much room if you are used to... More

Just been staying at langdale for two nights and ate at the Britannia both nights. The pub is so cozy and the staff so friendly it cannot be faulted. The food is very good too - the fish and chips are the best ever. We have visited the pub on many occasions and it is always the same - only... More

Needed to get away for a recharge. The Britannia did not disappoint. Superb food, great, friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Even made a fuss of our dog Flynn. Rooms are comfortable and clean and we enjoyed a good nights sleep. Good selection of beers and wine. A rely great base to walk out from and a lovely warm welcome back... More

Stayed one night in January. Smashing place. Go through the front door, turn right...cosy bar, roaring fire, loads of good booze to choose from. Turn left...small restaurant and guest area. We chose to eat in the bar. I had a burger...spot on...the missus had Sea Bass. She loved it. Loads of it and good value too....service quick. Local beer was... More

Stayed there on a Saturday night in January 2014 and had a wonderful time. The room was small but fine for our needs and immaculately clean. It looked like it had been recently refurbished. The bar was typical of an inn of this age, quite a few different rooms with the main bar having a wonderful open log fire. Great... More

We visited early December for long weekend. Rooms were not large(this is a very old building) but were very comfortable and well appointed. Public bar cosy with roaring fire and good range of local beer. Dining room comfortable, good menu and generous portions, especially breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful. Great area for walking. We would highly recommend this pub.

It is several years since we last stopped at the Britannia. What's changed? Nothing much I am pleased to say. The rooms have been upgraded and so have the prices but this aside it is still a great country pub in a beautiful location. Elterwater is perfect - even in the rain!

Superb food , service and although small, certainly adequate rooms which were spotlessly clean. Will not hesitate to go back; highly recommended. Good choice of beers and extensive menu for such a small resraurant

The Britannia Inn is the most welcoming, popular walking pub I have ever been to in the Lakes. Each and every member of staff was welcoming, polite and knowledgeable on the area. The pub is ideally located in a quaint village. You are spoilt for walks from the doorstep. The rooms are cosy and comfortable. The food was delicious, hearty... More

Hits the right note as a walkers inn - good beer - substantial well cooked plates of food - well located in the south of the Lakes - comfortable rooms - what more can one want (oh! By the way access to the facilities in the neighbouring hotel - swimming pool etc.)
