We first went in 2012. Me and my husband were walking past and the young lad outside noticed my husbands Blackpool football shirt. He ran up and said my boss is from Blackpool. We popped in for to say hello and have 1 drink!! Let's just say we ended up having a lovely meal and quite a few drinks. We booked for 2 Sunday lunches,which were lovely. Linda the owner is lovely. We then went back in 2013 with friends and again had a lovely meal. My friends had a traditional turks meal and I had Linda's homemade cheese and onion pie. Got to. Be tried. We are going again in June and will Def be calling in. So Linda get cooking.

We stumbled upon this gem by accident when walking back from the Haman.

Its owned and run by a lovely lady called Linda (who only lived over the bay from us). There's a good selection of English meals, but also Turkish if you prefer. All the meals are home cooked by Linda and if you call in and they tell you she's at home... she's doing the cooking and not sunbathing!! Yacob is also really friendly and happy to talk when he can.

The best thing though is Linda's Traditional English Roast Dinner on a Sunday. Delicious is not enough to describe it. Every thing was cooked perfectly and there was real Bisto gravy. Portion size for any of the meals were not to be sniffed at. You do have to book at least one day in advance and leave a deposit but that is knocked off your bill on the evening.

There was also a good choice of sweets but apple crumble and birds custard won hands down every time!!

If you do need that little bit of home I can't recommend this place enough. Thanks Linda :) x

Planned to go here for our first meal when I was researching the internet for good eateries prior to our holiday. Delighted to find out how close the Britannia is to our complex ( Kentia). My wife is a very fussy eater, and I love my food- we had gammon on the first night, and it was, without doubt, the freshest and tastiest gammon that we have ever tasted!

This is only our first night, tomorrow we are returning to Linda at the Britannia, and are 'going Turkish', and after the dish Linda showed us this evening, we are looking forward to dinner there as the highlight of the day.

Not to mention the stunningly romantic setting under the gently lit trees if you decide, as we did, to dine 'al fresco'. Although there is not really a 'scenic' view, I have marked it for having one, because the owners have made it scenic!

Thank you Linda, see you tomorrow!

Andy and Angela.
