The Britannia is a friendly contemporary pub located only a few hundred yards from the seafront promenade. It is situated in a hamlet outside the picturesque town of Hythe, with its interesting shops and architecture, Royal Military Canal and Romney Hythe & Dymchurch steam railway. Shorncliffe itself is well known as a garrison and army training site, and the Britannia is often the last pub the soldiers drink in before they go off on tours of duty. The pub is light and airy, yet with a traditional feel, with a focus on great beers and excellent traditional homemade food. Their generous steak pie is very popular, as are the Sunday roasts. A peaceful atmosphere reigns with cards and dominoes available for customers' use - and on Wednesday evenings there is a quiz with cash prize. Outside is a pretty courtyard garden with seating for summer, and two big, heated canopies - great for smokers, as well as a large car park.

Father's Day treat didn't disappoint!

The Britannia Inn on Horn Street is an excellent opportunity for Sunday lunch, with cracking food, good food, and a friendly family staff. Sunday roast was beautifully cooked, and the homemade traditional puddings were to die for. We will be regular visitors from now on!

A warm welcome when you enter this pub, its family run and this shines through. We visited on quiz night and had a great hot buffet of Chicken Casserole, fresh vegetables and new potatoes, a feast fit for a king. We won the quiz....what can I say. Perfect evening

The Britannia is a lovely, quaint, small, family run pub, off the beaten track, but yet within minutes of the M20 motorway. The welcome is warm and hearty, service impeccable, and a food menu of good, home cooked, typical pub food. From chilli to pies, scampi, a vast burger range, ham egg& chips, baguettes, I need to eat here for... More

I can't believe Christina Mary T's review! The place was spotless, the food and service was excellent, the staff helpful and courteous, not noisy at all and a wonderful place to relax! Lotterywinner is much more accurate (delicious puds!) and if the car park does get full, park on the road out the front, easy!

Went for Sunday lunch today. We've always passed but never stopped. Very impressed with their Sunday roast dinner. £8.95 for one course (which was so huge was all we could manage) although the starters and pudding menu look lovely. Huge portions, lovely roast tatties and yorkshires. Lots of lean meat. Parking is a bit limited and so is the amount... More
