Kensington’s Hidden Gem

The Britannia is tucked away just off Kensington’s busy High Street at No. 1 Allen Street, in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. Located on the site of the old ‘Britannia Tap’ Brewery site, our pub is steeped in history and has proudly been serving guests since 1834.

We aim to showcase the best of Britannia in all our own ceremonial splendor without the usual pomp and ceremony. So whether you’re joining us for a pint of real ale in our beautiful pub, enjoying some hearty British classics in our dining room, we fully encourage you to make yourself at home!

It’s officially that belt-loosening, bottle-popping and cracker-pulling time of year. Whether you are feasting with loved ones, sipping from the get go with colleagues after work or popping magnums at the weekend with pals, we’ve got your Christmas covered.

George and the team can’t wait to welcome you.

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!
