The Britannia in EC1

I can't summon up Anthony Yard's enthusiasm for this place, and am baffled as to why he thinks that it's in the East End. Either way, this was a surprisingly good ex-Whitbread pub and not the scary place I've always assumed it was. Well described below, I agree entirely that the place is classic 1970s, with an Artex ceiling and wood panelling. Music came from over the wireless, courtesy of Magic FM and at least two games' machines provided further entertainment; the absence of sport TV was an added bonus.
This is a quiet and friendly pub, seemingly free of chavs or football hooligans. There weren't many in, but they were white, Asian, old(ish) and young(ish); quite a family-orientated group too.
The ale front is limited with an Adnam's Southwold clip, reversed, and Sharp's Doom Bar at £1.80 a half which was a bit off; there were a further two unused pumps.
I can't really see myself coming here again, but I wish it well.
