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

Stayed here two nights whilst walking the Cumbria Way. Twin room 8, was fine with a strange shower enclosure resembling a hip bath. But perfectly adequate. Room well appointed though it is also the fire escape route so could be an interesting experience in the event of a fire!! Decent selection of real ales though we stuck with the Coniston... More

Had dinner in their restaurant last night. Very large portions (ideal after a day on the fells) but the food was bland and rather tasteless which was a shame as the restaurant staff were very friendly and efficient and it could have been a great occasion. The beer was excellent. Also - it was strange to have to pay 10%... More

Easy going relaxed atmosphere. A 500 year old pub with accommodation- so the rooms are small but spotlessly clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food excellent quality. Location is perfect especially if your a walker, its right by the Langdales. We just had a great time - our 3rd visit- and will be back again soon.

Another night spent here, and once again not a single let down. Booked it late afternoon and drove straight up. Arrived to happy friendly staff, great beer and some the best food money can buy. The room was clean, comfortable and more than enough room for my partner, me and Cooper my husky. Highly recommend to everyone. Don't hesitate, just... More

I have visited the Britannia inn many times and stated in the reviews below the views are magical. The service is friendly and the food is stunning. Whether it's a cold winters night sat by the fire or a summers evening sat outside watching the sunset, it's beautiful. Andrew and the team take real pride in giving excellent customer service!!...

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
