A Hidden Gem

I stumbled upon this one early-ish on a weekday. I had just arrived and wanted a good lunch and a pint. Because this pub seems to be hiding from the world, it was empty. Something I’m not used to with pubs at lunchtimes. Very cozy and plush, I could have stayed in this one all day. There was a fire going and the food was great.

Pleasant Dining Experience

Pleasant space at back for table dining and small side terrace; really good food and beer/wine selection and smiling service… What more do you need?


Nostalgic Pub Classic

Every place has a different take on bangers and mash, as does every person. My opinion was formed in the Cambridge area close to thirty years ago when I first encountered the dish. Brittania’s is very close. 5 stars for nostalgia.


Fantastic Spot in London

A great pub to go and enjoy a few drinks with your friends or have a nice meal. The atmosphere is really nice and everyone that works there are absolutely brilliant, especially the waiting staff who made our visit extra special with their kind and courteous attitude. Will certainly be back again soon!


Our new Fever-Tree G&T and Gin Spritz menus are sure to serve you a slice of summer.
