In Folkestone for 2 weeks on business, I got to see quite a few pubs and restaurants. This was easily my favourite. Reasonable food and a quiet atmosphere, but it was the friendliness of the host that made the difference. I hope to be able to visit again.

We called in for a drink at around 6-40 on Monday 5th December 2016 the pub is very pleasant in a nice location we asked if they served food and the landlord said yes after 7 pm and when my wife arrives. We think Monday is probably a quite night in this village pub, and that the landlord telephoned his... More

My wife and I had a few days in Hythe and we came across this friendly local pub. We went on Wednesday night to enjoy the quiz and a cheap £6 evening meal. We were warmly welcomed by the land lord (Nigel) and shown to our table for the quiz. I had telephoned earlier to find out the details for... More

Wednesday evenings - Good value, wholesome food. Pleasant surroundings. Brain testing quiz - not too hard not too easy. Able to get some and not others- challenging enough. Consistently good morning lace to visit

My husband and I recently visited this family owned pub. A lovely couple have the pub which is very friendly establishment. They offer food and also themed evenings. Car park facilities.. A great pub, it's shame we do not live close by for this is a typical local pun, which unfortunately you do not see many of nowadays!

Read the reviews of good food and friendly landlord and they weren't wrong! We arrived just before 7pm on Friday after a 10-hour drive across Switzerland and France, and a 2-hour wait to get on the EuroTunnel. The Britannia Inn is just down the road from the Holiday Inn Express so was perfect for us. Proper pub grub which was... More

We have been to several Wednesday night quizzes. The atmosphere is friendly and lively. The food, £6.00 for a help yourself meal, is excellent value and the quiz is testing but run in a very friendly and encouraging way. Great value all round.

We had a fabulous dinner at the Britannia Inn tonight. We phoned ahead and booked a table in the bar as we had our dog with us. My husband had the amazing pie and I had a delicious Britannia Burger. I love the 70s music and everyone was so friendly and helpful. We walked from the Holiday Inn and was... More

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.
