“Filling food with nice atmosphere”

The Britannia Inn, Elterwater,Great Langdale
Ranked #2 of 6 Nightlife in Ambleside
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

We met up with some friends before we went for a late serving meal in the restaurant.

The local ales were pleasant, and the food was filling. The signature dish being the lamb.

The meat pie had a proper crust, though it was a little better perhaps that last time.

The inn is always busy so best to book ahead.

A smashing pub at any time but especially after A walk on the fells.

Open fires good needs and food and dog friendly.

We popped in on a Thursday evening having walked from Brimstone. It was just what we wanted, a couple of pints of ale for me, a few halves of cider for my true love and roasted peanuts to share, all consumed in a small atmospheric bar right in front of the fire, whilst groups of friends and family regaled stories from far and wide. Very relaxing

We stopped here for food and drinks before heading to elkwater falls
I didn't think much of the menu a good majority of it was some form of pie which not being a pie lover there wasn't most pleasing
I ordered steak pie with potatoes and vegetable the pie was nice the veg was poor looked as though it had been froze for a lengthy period then nuked to death in the mircrowave my partner got the ploughman's lunch which was well presented but taste was average for the price drinks were also expensive and considering the prices you would expect better quality food and a wider choice on the menu as it is a pub type place I expected traditional pub food however as mentioned above if you're not a fan of pie related food it isn't the best place to go
It's in a lovely picturesque location with lovely views the pub itself is very quaint charming in a pleasantly old fashioned sense
Majority of the staff weren't overly friendly or helpful and it was disappointing orders weren't taken from the table you have to order food from the bar
The table was dirty and somebody else's left glasses on the table until somebody came over to clear it up
It was pretty chilly in this place not well heated so if you feel the cold then wrap up warm!

Whether you want a snack, lunch or a full meal in the dining room this is the Lakeland pub for you. Full of original features and warm log fires there is atmosphere in buckets here. The food and service are good as well. Not our first visit here and we hope it won’t be our last.
