Popped into this local pub whilst on holiday to compete in their local Wednesday pub quiz... Was immediately welcomed as if a regular. Great atmosphere, friendly and fun spirited. The land lord came to our table and when he saw my husbands pint looked a bit flat he insisted on changing it, even though we hadn't complained. All too often... More

Took my 3 year old Daughter and 8 year old Son for Sunday Lunch last weekend. Nigel (the Landlord) is very welcoming and the atmosphere in the pub was lovely. Both of my kids had the Roast Lamb and all the trimmings, they even had a veggie option for me. The kids absolutely loved their meals and wolfed them down.... More

Me and my husband visited here on a Friday evening whilst on a weekend away. The pub is very nice, in a beautiful setting with lots of outside seating. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner who was very friendly and attentive. We decided to stay for dinner and definately were not disappointed. The food is delicious... More

We visited The Britannia for the first time following a walk with a group of friends who know it well. It was lunchtime and we had all pre booked our meals. The food was hot and very tasty, those who had the Steak & Ale pie all said how good it was and shortcrust pastry too rather than the usual... More

A great pub and great service - Nigel is terrific, best landlord you'll ever meet. Friendly and funny. Quick tip - try the steak night (kind of monthly) - great portions, well cooked and great price.

A very congenial host, nothing is too much trouble. We turned up one Sunday lunchtime and had not booked but a meal was provided for us with no fuss at all. Food is always good an excellent pub to enjoy lunch or dinner.

We visit this pub regularly, the service from Nigel and all the team is welcoming and friendly. The steak night is excellent with plenty of food. Can't fault the pub or the service.

Called in here for a light lunch during a journey. It was a good place to choose. Don't like the new red paint, though.

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. The pub has a traditional feel, with a focus on great beers and excellent traditional homemade food. Outside is a pretty courtyard garden with seating for summer as well as a large car park.
