“Good Effort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Good food, a bit overpriced. service, although intentions were good, the staff have not made the transition from 'bar staff, to 'waiters'. It would be great if drinks could be served at the table...for some reason the staff are instructed to direct customers to the bar if they want drinks during their meal!?! Why, when the food is good (a major plus in this area) the dining area is modern and pleasant, do they want to make the customer work to spend money on the bar!!! I dont want to get up half way through my meal to 'get a round of drinks'. Still worth a visit though.

“Very slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Had a good meal but had to wait an hour for sweet so not very impressed. They need to sort out service as lost interest as evening moved on and just wanted to leave

“Normally good food and service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We have eaten at the Britannia Coaching Inn several times and normally enjoy both the food and the service. On this occasion we were unable to reserve a table in the restaurant and accepted a table in the snug downstairs. The food was OK, tasty, hot and we didn't have to wait long, however the service by the barman,who also takes the food orders, left a lot to be desired! Would recommend the restaurant but we will not be eating in the snug again.
