The Britannia is a friendly contemporary pub located only a few hundred yards from the seafront promenade. It is situated in a hamlet outside the picturesque town of Hythe, with its interesting shops and architecture, Royal Military Canal and Romney Hythe & Dymchurch steam railway. The pub has a traditional feel, with a focus on great beers and excellent traditional homemade food. Outside is a pretty courtyard garden with seating for summer as well as a large car park.

Nice venue, clean and tidy. Staff very pleasant. Typical Shepherd & Neame premise very expensive. As the nominated driver so not drinking to be changed £3.10 for a Coke spoilt the night.
