We stayed in the Britannia for a relaxing country weekend break.We were extremely happy with the accommodation with the room being spacious and clean.The staff were very friendly and helpful.The Britannia is in the centre of the lovely picturesque town of historic Sherbourne,with the cathedral being virtually next door.The added bonus was the Thai restaurant attached to the pub.The food was excellent,value for money and not surprisingly extremely popular.After dinner it was nice to relax in front of the fire in the bar with a few drinks.The bed was extremely comfortably and felt well rested after a good nights sleep.In the morning we ventured up to the historic castle,which was only a 20 minute sunday stroll away.Overall I thought the Britannia was excellent value for money,will stay there again and will recommend to others .
