Always visited this pub while in the area, varying landlords, last year we went and had the most fantastic experience with a lady owner/chef! Sadly she's no longer there, the place is dreadful, not clean, no atmosphere and odd opening hours! Give it a miss...More

Kate has changed the pub back to what it's always been good at. Comfortable, cosy, good beer, pub food at reasonable prices, welcoming staff. A country pub with God.

"As a traditional country Inn, their menu caters for all tastes and occasions, ranging from simple snack meals like fresh sandwiches and classic home-made steak & kidney pie, to more complex flavours, such as pan fried scallops with black pudding (seasonal) and pan seared local duck breast with a morello cherry jus - enough to tempt any foodie!"We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have just been awarded a SILVER Award in the 'DINING PUB' category in the prestigious TASTE OF THE WEST AWARDS 2013!(And now also in 2014!!!)
Extract from Award letter - "Many congratulations on your achievement - the competition is fierce and the bar extremely high.
"This is excellent news and all credit must go to everyone including all our staff,(especially our amazing Supervisor, Maria), who have worked tirelessly, to ensure that every customer has an enjoyable experience when they visit the 'Britannia'.Why not come and meet them and see for yourself?
We have also recently won the South West Regional Final for the Community Hero Awards competition 2013. A truly magnificent accolade for all our customers.- Kate
