We were in the langdales for the day and were recommended the Brittania Inn by our bed and breakfast. We were treated to a lovely view outside and the weather even held until we had finished. It was a busy place but there were plenty of tables. We ate outside and ordered our food at the bar. They served us quickly and our food arrived promptly. The beer selection was a wide variety of local ales. We both ordered the fish and chips and were given some tender haddock, plenty of chunky chips, mushy peas and homemade tartar. We both ate everything. I then ordered the desserts. These were extremely tasty if a little costly. I possibly would forego these next time for the excellent beer.

We would happily return to the Brittania next time we are near. If only all local pubs had such a good selection of food and catered for their customers well. It was noticeable just how many locals also used the Britannia, which goes to show it deserves it's high ratings.

We booked in for Friday night (25/04/2014) we dinned in the separate dinning room as it was a rainy night so sitting outside wasn't an option. The service was very good and the waiter helped my youngest son with his selection . The menu is traditional Lakeland fare and is cooked to a high standard yes it is a little more expensive than other pubs in the area but you can tell its cooked fresh homemade and not out of a microwave. We will return next time we are in the lakes. Thank you for a lovely last evening to our holiday.

We visited the Brittania Inn for an evening meal and were really rather impressed. The bar and restaurant were really busy & the only table we could get was outside, which actually worked out well as the sun was shining & the scenery is stunning. The food was incredible, so much better than your average pub food. The service was also great, we certainly didn't get forgotten about due to sitting outside (which I've found in some other pubs). We will definitely visit this pub again on our next trip to the Lakes.

Nice local pub. Good quality, reasonably priced food .. service was good and efficient, but the restaurant was a bit bright for a romantic meal in the evening.

Dropped into the Britannia while on a point to point Lakes walk while staying at High Close YHA. Great cozy pub with a super selection of real ales. The food was very good too-I recommend the Chicken Burger.
