Reviewed this just over a year ago and have been 2 or 3 times since. Has dropped a point to 3 stars as it is now just your basic pub grub, albeit in pleasant surroundings, but the prices they are charging compared with elsewhere in the area for the same standard, or in most cases better, of food is excessive. I think I would only go here now would be for a drink in the garden and leave the menu alone unless elsewhere is fully booked

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It is really disappointing to hear you didn't enjoy your last visit to us and we are sorry you felt the food was not good value for money. We do try to be as competitive as we possibly can, and try and offer a varied main menu along with our chefs specials. We hope perhaps you may give us another try in the future.

Many thanks,
The Britannia

Visited the Britannia for a special Birthday meal with all the family. Despite everyone in the party having something different in terms of meal/sauces/drink choices, the order came out spot on, cooked to perfection and nice and hot - the cod looked particularly impressive!

Service was attentive without being 'in your face'. As it had been a nice day, the place was busy outside with young families, yet we didn't feel pressured or overlooked.

Came here for a quick afternoon drink and then came back the next two evenings for dinner in Waves restaurant as it was within walking distance from our hotel. Staff were very friendly and the food was great, the coconut pavlova was to die for.

We just returned from our visit . What can we say ... EXCELLENT!!
We booked last minute unsure what to expect as not from the area.
The restaurant is modern and fab decor.
The service from the minute we entered was excellent .
The food well... amazing. ! Our food was pipping hot ( which is rare in most places!) food had lots of flavour and a large portion.
Deserts were so tasty and again just enough.
Definatly recommend an absolute gem .
