Happy Hour on a Friday December Afternoon - Brittania Arms, Capitola

We were there for happy hour on a Friday afternoon. We enjoyed some beers on the outdoor patio. Its great to live in California as its December. There were holiday decorations including a Snow Man on the Roof of Brittania Arms in Capitola. This was a repeat visit for us.

Our party enjoyed our visit here, with a decent selection of beer and tasty snacks. BUT when I brought it to our waitresses attention that there was a VERY LARGE shard of glass in my pint she said "oh" and walked away to do nothing. I understand that things happen but this is not how you should react when a... More

The bartender's shirt was a little tacky! He usually wears an Italian table cloth to cover his belly! Carl

If you're a beer drinker and football fan you'll enjoy Sunday at the pub. Food is pub style and priced a little high because it's right on the ocean. It's a friendly, charming beer/sport bar.

We stopped in a couple of times and ended up leaving both times before we were able to get seated or get a cocktail. We asked for patio seating to have a cocktail and we're told that we had to sit inside because patio seating was only if you purchased a meal. Then one waitress would say yes get a... More

Located close to Capitola Village beach a nice place to hop in and have some beers and "tapa" style food. Also good to sit outside to enjoy sundown with a great cocktail or listening to live music playing on the beach

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch after spending the morning checking out the surfers at the Capitola Beach. We had the Irish BLT and Corned beef sandwiches which were very good. Service was good and the price was reasonable.

The Britannia is right on the beach front with inside and outside seating, although English themed it’s not tacky. Food, service and beers all very good. I had fish chips and mushy peas and my wife had steak & kidney pie. A friend had the Cornish pasty it was huge and looked full of meat. The mushy peas were the... More

Since this is close to where we are staying, we have gone about three times recently. The servers are always friendly, and all of our food choices have been great so far. Love the grilled artichokes and crab melt. Food prices are reasonable, wines by the glass are high as everywhere else. The interior is a little dark and dingy,... More

Fun British-style pub, with all the right ales and beers on tap! Food is a step above bar food (and yes, you can get the traditional English things).
