BritanniaOnce upon a time, The Britannia was part of the Britannia Brewery built in 1834 by Edward Herrington and William Wells and bought out by Young's in the early 1900s. It retains the congenial atmosphere of a traditional pub (sturdy wood bar, real fires, ale) but now has a stylish, sunken dining room and conservatory at the back. The place looks especially inviting at night when candles flicker on every wooden table. The food, as you'd expect, is gastropub - much of it fashionably organic. A well-thought out menu ranges from small plates like poached eggs Florentine with Hollandaise sauce, to a hearty 28-day dry -aged Short Horn sirloin steak with b?arnaise and chips, and an even heartier ch?teaubriand for two. Fantastic lunch time specials.
