We first went here two years ago after a long walk, for a drink on a warm day, busy, but found a seat outside. Had a meal there another day, think was fairly average. Went just for a drink this time, didn't fancy anything on the menu as most stuff is quite expensive, as I don't want 'heavy' food, like pies. Fish is always more than I want to pay. As we were camping, we tended to cook tastier food at the campsite.

Very good choice with great food and a good selection of beers all at a reasonable price. We sat outside overlooking the green and had lunch. The ploughmans lunch was large with a good selection of cheese and the cumberland sausage sandwhich was good too.

Very friendly staff - would go again...

We arrived in Langdale in the rain despite forecast to the contrary . The Britannia was very busy but a member of staff found us some space in the back bar and we were made welcome . It a real old British country pub which is wonderful . Our food was good as was the service , however what made the evening was the pub quiz ! Oh the local real ale goes down well too. We will be back !

Regularly visit, v welcoming by staff, v unpretentious interior which we really like, great pint of Sneck Lifter BUT food v poor - my pie was a reheat with some of the meat really tough and the
crust inedible and wife's fish was a really small portion and microwaved and overheated. Very disappointing and then the bill for 2 meals plus 3 drinks came to £40 - we will not be revisiting this year

It was our first day in the lakes staying in a cottage opposite The Brit- set off at 8.30 for an 8 mile loop through langdale valley and back to Elterwater - it was 12.50 on a wet Sunday and cars were pulling into the pub car park at a worrying rate we picked up the pace [2 of us and Houston the beagle] we managed to secure the last table in the entrance hall next to an open fire. A quick eye on the menu and steak ale and mushroom pies were ordered, suet but must have been finished in the oven as they were slightly crispy - served with mustered mash and veg - yes yes yes absolutely marvellous washed down with a couple of beers and then to the cottage a fire and a film - I love this pub its what lake district pubs should be - not pretentious, very friendly staff and top nosh
