We visited on Wednesday 18t March and waited half an hour for a drink and an hour and twenty minutes for our meal. This is the second time we have experienced such poor service at the Britannia, we shall not be visiting again.

I thought the fish was slightly overcooked as Was on the dry side but not too bad. Risotto was a bit mushy & didn't taste of much. But disappointed really. My... More

The waitress was rude - the food was cold when it eventually arrived and all four of our party were horrified at the way we were spoken to... More

We were eating on Saturday night and clearly there was a problem in the kitchen, the floor staff were great especially Suki and did all they possibly could. The food and service is normally excellent and feel reviews are harsh. We will be back as love the food and welcoming atmosphere.

Thought I would try out the new menu last night (Monday 10th) some great new dishes and decided on the cod which was very good. Great atmosphere and superb service from Suki as always. Would recommend.
