Just returned from an excellent lunch at Brittens. The food was amazing and far larger portion sizes than the previous chief gave. My 2 friends and I had the lunch time menu which is fantastic value for money. In fact the liver, bacon and black...More

I went to brittens and as soon as I got in there the atmosphere was different. Apparently Dan Britten hasn't been there since Christmas. Was the only reason we came back for his and his food, why haven't they told anyone he isn't there anymore?!?!?

Great food, personable and good service, average atmosphere but hugely let down by cheap tables and chairs and cutlery from a cafe. Dead by 10pm

We enjoyed a very good family dinner at this restaurant. The surroundings were unpretentious & compfortable, though we felt the interior rather featureless and not helped by the blue neon lighting. The cooking was excellent and our meal was served by good humoured, friendly staff....More
