Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went to my friends 60th birthday get together on the 20th august 2022 at this so called welcoming public house. there was at least 20+ people in our group so spent a lot of money there, can i just say i have never been to...a most unwelcoming pub in all my life, the landlord and i presume his wife was the most ignorant and rude people i have ever been served by. the land lady did not crack a smile all night except when she was talking to her regular customers, i presume was amos brearly,mr wilks and seph armstrong from emmerdale.im sorry we invaded your pub and ruined your boring life. it was the first and last time we will visit. so sorry some people like to have fun.as soon as we finished our drinks each time she whipped the glasses away as a hurry up and go home, well this comes from all our party of people. you got no fear of us returning and i do believe theres a course on customer skills maybe book one.everyone of our party commented on how rude you were.and knowing how hard things are now would have thought you would be pleased to have the custom but clearly not.will be spending our money in a place where your made to feel welcome .More

My word, what a pub, more like a DUB (W). The ultras are some of the best ive ever seen especially Big Mate. The Stella's are magical and Id recommend popping down for a chinwag with the lads at any point. ALSO, you cannot forget...the fish finger baguette - it was astonishing. If youre looking for a new set of ultras, the Brit is where its at. Love, peace and pints x.More

Popped in for a solo beer and supper, ad was made to feel most welcome. superb pints Spitfire bitter (made me look up all the Shepherd Neame politically-incorrect Spitfire ad's), and a very ample portion of ham eggs & chips. Pleased to see a pub...I remember as a youngster looking so good with new owners, and wish them best of luck. Give it a try!More

A friendly pub with very friendly locals and a landlord who gave us a good welcome. Food was great: Steak and Mushroom Pie was homemade and delicious. Scampi meal was more than plentiful. Food served from 7pm on the weekday evening we were there. Parking,...including 2 disabled spaces.More

What a rare thing. A landlord and landlady that have time for their customers. Haven't felt that welcome in a pub for years. The quiz night was just how you imagine a pub should be - food, drink, friendly atmosphere, a real sense of local...community. Thoroughly recommended.More

Was staying at Holiday Inn Express nearby and popped down to the Britannia Inn which was only 3 mins away (by car). The staff were very helpful and friendly, and despite not booking managed to fit 4 of us in. The food was straight forward,...no nonsense pub food, made locally by the pub. I had the steak and ale pie which was probably the best I've had in many years. Also was inexpensive costing £54 for four people (4 pints of Thatchers, four mains, two deserts and two coffees). Very enjoyable!More

I called in here on a wet and windy Friday evening in June. The bar is very small and was very quiet during my visit. The bar maid was unsure at first if food was still available. It was and I ordered the pie of...the day which turned out to be my usual choice anyway! Steak and ale! It took some time to arrive but I accepted that it was being cooked fresh. It was really good. Good portion of chips, loads of peas and a very meaty pie served in an individual traditional pie dish. The server who I assumed was the cook, seemed genuinely pleased that I enjoyed her cooking and persuaded me to try a dessert. I chose the chocolate fudge cake with cream that was way too nice!!! Really great food. Loved the spitfire larger too which I assumed was a local brand. Great visit even though it was very quiet.More

We stopped in the nearby Holiday inn and wanted a decent size meal as we had been travelling all day. My two kids are quite fussy but there was something on the menu for them and something healthy but of a decent size for us....Lovely home cooked food and friendly service at a reasonable price. If we stay in the area again we will definitely come back.More

Enjoyed a really delicious English pub lunch here meeting friends who had travelled over on the Eurotunnel from France while we drove down from London. Plenty of parking in a nice countryfied environment just 7 minutes drive from the tunnel and 5 minutes drive out...of Hythe. Food was great, beers went down well and the welcoming fire was lit to keep us warm. Landlord put himself out to welcome us even though we arrived before opening time.More

My Wife and I were stopping overnight in Folkestone before catching an early Chunnel crossing. We’d lived in Kent 21 years previous and I really fancied a proper pint of Shepherd Neame Spitfire,other beers are available but this one is very good😊 We did the...usual and looked on Trip advisor and there are lots of three lettuce leaf and a smattering of gorilla glue on the side type of places if that’s your thing, no, I wanted pub grub. It came as a surprise that literally 0.6 of a mile ( I don’t do kilometres, google it or whatever is used for working such nonsense out)there was an oasis of pub normality, the Britannia, we were suited and booted in the blink of an eye and off down the road. It’s in a great location, there’s a car park and on street parking too. As we entered into the bar there was a crowd of people in there laughing and having a good time and then the big red sign hit me like a failed cricket ball catch, “ look, Hooligans lager”, I couldn’t believe it, after telling the northerners about this miracle elixir, anti ageing liquid,there it was, proud as punch. This brought on a rare moment of contemplation, Hooligans or a couple of Shepherd Neames best. I’m sorry to say I went for the Spitfire,this pub knows how to keep its beers and how to serve them, fanbloodytastic 🍺🍺 We asked to see the menu and as expected there was a great choice of proper pub grub, my wife had the Steak and Kidney pie, it was great, no searching around in a tasteless liquid for the filling, oh no, this was brimming with meat, I’m not sure how many cows went into it, but my Wife thanks you for your sacrifice. I opted for the Britannia burger, fantastic. Nice thick burger, onion rings, cheese and barbecue sauce, I may have missed some ingredients, but it was great. Mine came with a mountain of chips and a nice salad selection so if I wanted to I could pretend I was being health conscious 😊, my wife’s dinner came with a mountain of chips too, and a very generous portion of garden peas that were very tasty too. After my very tasty mains, I decided to go all out and order a pudding,I chose the syrup sponge and of course, custard, loved it. Served piping hot, as in global thermo nuclear hot syrup(as it should be), let’s face it, we’ve all scooped a spoon of syrup/sticky toffee/jam up to our lips and then had the mental discussion as to how painful it was going to be😂, now I know the adults amongst you would be saying,”blow on it, leave it for a few minutes, why didn’t you have ice cream?” But, where’s the fun in that? Did I mention the beer?🍺😊. The publican was a very sociable host and his staff are excellent. Have a look at the menu, give it a go,we loved it. Check the food serving times and if you want fish and chips we were asked to pre order it, ie it wasn’t available at the time of our visit The Britannia 26 Horn Street, Hythe, Kent CT21 5SRMore
