“A lovely friday lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Having never been to the Britannia as it was before I am not able to compare it like others. However I like Ashley Cross and really feel The Brit pub a welcome addition to a great area. Large pub, lovely outdoors area, nicely decorated. Menu was good and inexpensive. Food we were assured was sourced locally. Some special touches including a wholemeal bun with a burger.. Junk food but more healthy! Staff were friendly. Service good. Have heard good things about the evening do's here and I look forward to coming back as think the atmosphere would be good.

“Good as a pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

This place was good bit expensive for what it was also very rowdy if you just want a quiet meal but the food was fairly good .

“Best pub in Ashley Cross.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Still frequently found in The Brit. Eating regularly. Can't fault this bar. Everyone looks after each other. Best Sunday Roast for miles, new restaurant menu must be sampled. Working our way through and enjoying ever choice. Back on Fri for the next bash. If you've not been there you are missing a treat.Keep up the good work guys.
