I was a regular customer but then stopped going a couple of months ago. Although I did not write a review then many did and I concur with all the reviews then. The food and service was abysmal. I made my sentiments known to the manager and in writing to the company. They requested I give the Britannia another chance,... More

We dropped in here for a quick and easy dinner and ended up spending the majority of the evening there. Always liked the Britannia as good pub food and friendly service. I had a chicken tikka curry which was created with a top chef, was probably one of the best dishes I have ever tasted, thoroughly recommend it. The other... More

Seems every time I go I am disappointed which with the lunchtime menu and the food offered. This time I ordered a jacket potato with prawns and salad. Cold jacket potato with... More

We visited for a family birthday meal on St George's Day having booked our table for 4 for 6.30pm. We visit fairly regularly and have always been impressed with the service and the food. This time the service let it down badly as others have been commenting recently. We had a wait to be seated, then a wait for menus.... More

I agree with other poor reviews sadly. This could potentially be a really enjoyable place to visit. Kitchen appears understaffed and nobody seems to care about customer service and satisfaction. Empty tables but people are still turned away. What a shame...

Due to complex allergies we were hesitant to eat here but received care & consideration from the waiter. However after a very long wait my meal arrived with the sea bass ruined by over cooking & burned scallops. Unfortunately the salad came smothered a dressing I hadn't asked for & had to be sent back. The price of the meal... More
