We stayed 2 nights and ate at the pub both nights. Room was a bit cramped but clean. Food was very good and a great atmosphere both in and outside in the seating area. We took our 2 small dogs who were more than welcomed by the staff. Service and the staff were excellent!! Would we go again? Probably although... More

This pub features in the Good Pub Guide 2013 for all the right reasons. Great beer, great service, great food in a relaxed but busy, traditional pub. We booked for two nights stay with our dog and baby. We were made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff. Our dog received plenty of strokes and treats from the staff.... More

Once again a great weekend in a lovely Lakes pub - with particularly welcome log fires to warm us up after battling through the snow - spring seemed a long way away! The food was, as ever, excellent - venison and sea bass being particularly fantastic - and we particularly enjoyed the Sunday night quiz - making new friends as... More

The Britannia Inn is a traditional pub in a beautiful location. The highlight is the service - all staff unfailingly helpful, cheerful and attentive - and the food - a decent menu very well cooked. We arrived mid evening without booking on a wet Saturday evening in April and got a special price for three nights which made it very... More

This well known hostelry is perfectly located for the Langdale valley, with a handy bus-stop outside the door. But at £125 per night b&b over the weekend, we found this very pricey for the standard of accommodation.....if it were £75 my rating would be higher. But then with limited pub options in this area, the Brit can charge what it... More

No piped music, no fruit machines, just a roaring fire, great real ales and some pretty good food. The Britannia Inn is the consummate pub with friendly staff and a real welcoming atmosphere and they won’t turn their nose up if you ask for a coffee or hot chocolate. In an area of great pubs this one stands out, give... More

We recently stayed here for two nights with our little dog Alfie and loved every minute of it. The staff were the best ever and made us feel very welcome. We've stayed in quite a few Olde Worlde Inns and this is by far one of, if not the best . The room was perfect, location perfect, beer perfect and... More

We were a group of 4 friends who stayed at the Brit for 3 nights to enjoy the walking. This old inn is in the perfect location to make the most of the Langdales whilst being handy for Grasmere and Ambleside. Excellent staff - nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts to die for and great food in the evenings. The... More
