I love this place! It's a great no nonsense country pub with roaring fires, great beers, and hearty pub food. We spent an enjoyable few hours here whilst the rain lashed down. All five of us eat here and none were disappointed. My father in law and son said the steak pie was the best they'd tasted. My Cumberland sausage... More

Our second stay here, but the first was in 1968 on the occasion of our very first visit to the Lakes. It really was a pleasure to be back! Room first; small, with a tiny shower room attached, both very clean, warm and fully equipped. In a 400 hundred year old building! Excellent TV and wifi reception in the room.... More

I was initially a little cautious of booking rooms at a pub, as so many of the ones we looked at in the Lake District were really dated. I like my pubs old and chintzy, but my rooms less so! Best of both worlds at the Britannia - cosy, characterful pub and spotless, modern rooms that still feel in keeping... More

Two night stay at The Britannia was really excellent. The staff are very focused on ensuring that everything is right and that you are being attended to. The food is terrific, the beer real, just what you need after a walk on the Lakeland Fells. Accommodation although not large was clean , quiet and comfortable. We will be back ;-)

the rooms have been done up and were absolutely spotless. The real Ale choice from 10 Ales Home cooked food was top drawer- lamb henry or a big steak pie & veg. Proprieters gave us some great local walking routes.

Come to the pub every year and never fails - great fires in the winter, space outside in the summer. Staff extremely friendly and welcoming. great place to have a break on a long walk or even just for a relaxing break during the holiday. Food portions are excellent and the location is amazing. One of my favourite places...

Enjoyed our 2 night stay. Really lovely staff. Tasty breakfasts. Great beer. Warm and cosy. Good water pressure in shower (!) Bit surprised to find 10% added to the price of our evening meal because we ate in the dining room rather than the bar - But that's the only slight grumble. Would definitely recommend if you want a comfortable... More

A proper walkers destination with its real ale and roaring fire. Our room was small but well appointed and clean. The cooked breakfasts were excellent and evening meals very tasty. Most of the staff friendly but a slight arrogant attitude from on of the younger members. We'll definately visit again.

Always liked the pub but first time staying here. Room 8 at the back of the hotel is small but well appointed, comfy beds and nice shower. Breakfasts were awesome! Probably the best ive ever had and includes haggis :) staff very friendly. Great ales. What more can you say.

We stayed in room 2 overlooking the main entrance with a lovely view to the langdales. Comfy bed, powerful shower and a little window seat to watch the world go by. The pub itself was very atmospheric, great real ale and the food served in generous portions, the Lamb Henry was superb. The full english breakfast was very very substancial,... More
