A very tasteful restaurant with very tasty meals and a good menu choice. Family friendly too. Service was friendly and helpful without being pretentious.

We stayed here for a week in 'Gribben' room. It is the first time we have stayed in a pub before and I was a bit worried about the noise, but this wasn't a problem at all. The room was nice (it was one of the smaller rooms, but there were only two of us so that didn't matter, it had everything we needed. A really comfortable bed, a super walk in shower and and plenty of storage space. A fan was also provided and everything else you would expect in a good hotel. The only problem with the room was a rather strange smell. A bit like smelly feet, which we noticed instantly we entered the room. An air freshener was provided and and we opened the windows. Once in the room for a minute or two, the smell becomes unnoticeable. We mentioned it to the staff when we left at the end of our stay (we got used to it and it wasn't a major problem) and they said that it was oil from new furniture. This was the only problem with the room. Everything else was perfect. It was immaculately cleaned everyday and it was also quiet. The only noise was from the main road nearby.

We ate at the Britannia on several occasions. The Waves restaurant has very nice surroundings and service, but the normal restaurant and bar lounge are also pleasant. We ate mainly in the Waves restaurant, but used the bar lounge on a couple of occasions and had breakfast in the pub restaurant and their Sunday carvery lunch. The food in all 3 places was excellent as was the service. The menu was the same though for each of the venues. However, we ate there 5 nights out of 7 and didn't run out of things to choose. Portion sizes are large though. Rarely did I make pudding. The staff were attentive and polite at all times.

The Britannia Inn is situated just on the outskirts of St. Austell and was well positioned for the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. We also visited Newquay and Padstow which were were the 'other side' of Cornwell, but were still within easy reach.

We had a lovely week here and we would thoroughly recommend to others.
