We stayed here this past weekend with friends who regularly stay there. The room was lovely and the food was great we ate there both nights of the trip and the fish and chips are great. Great homely atmosphere and so ideally located for walks. I would recommend a drink, a meal of the full package with accommodation.

We visited in May of 2014 finding a last minute booking. the Price paid was discounted by around 10% so we were quite pleased. This was our first stay at the Britannia Inn although we have visited it many times in the past for meals and drinks. The location is magnificent and our room overlooked the village green and bowling... More

We'd previously been to the Brit for drinks and decided to treat ourselves to a stay with our young son. We had an amazing time - the staff we're really welcoming and helpful and it was such a nice break. The room (number 6) looked out onto the village bowling green and was very comfy. We made use of the... More

I had the Lamb Henry at weekend and it was yummy,yummy yummy!! I would recommend this as a place to eat, or just have a drink and a natter as most people are very chatty :0-) The real ales were a hit with my friend too.

We loved our stay at the Brittania Inn -- it's quaint location surrounded by the hills of the Lake District where sheep outnumber people 22 to 1. The rooms are comfortable with simple and extremely clean ensuite baths. Although our room was on top of the restaurant and pub, we barely knew they wee there. The breakfast was fantastic! If...

Having been double booked at a B and B, we'd panicked before trying the Britannia who came to the rescue. We have eaten and drunk here lots of times so were thrilled to be able to stay. Room was cosy and delightful, and the bathroom was fine with a great shower. Food tasty and my husband sampled all but one... More

The Britannia Inn is a legend in South Lakeland. It is a traditional, tiny, building in an idyllic setting on the village green in Elterwater. You need to leave your modern pre-conceptions and expectations at home before staying here as the building is a complete compromise. Guest rooms are clean and well presented and no two are the same. Downstairs... More

Excellent Pub with good accommodation. Really good pub food. Very convenient for many walks in the area. Great place to stay. Highly recommended. It does get vey busy so don't expect instant service for meals. Be patient, it's worth it..

Had a very enjoyable stay in the Britannia Inn last week. The sunshine definately helped and we spent the evening sitting comfortably outside. The bar meal was very tasty and our room had the most comfortable bed. Excellent value for money, right in the heart of the Lakes, for brilliant walks and views...would definately recommend.

If you know the Lakes, you know the Britannia. Just returned from a four night stay, and it was excellent in every regard. Really great food, which was always extremely quickly brought out despite the number of people eating, and the breakfasts as ever were fantastic. Unfailingly helpful and genuine courteous staff, even when faced with lots of customers. Looking... More
