Quinno _ left this review about The Britannia

An Ember inn (old Halls Brewery ceramic hare on the outside wall). Multi-area’d. Usual corporate carpeted interior with some dodgy sax muzak to add to the Barrett Showhome feel. Oddly chavvy customers. Usual Ember food offerings, and I noted a number of tables remained resolutely uncleared throughout or 20 minutes. Ostensibly impressive line-up of eight ales; Doom Bar, 6X, Brakspear Oxford Gold, St Austell Proper Job, Gadds Wheat, Woodfordes Flagondry, Adnams Single Hop and a cherry ale of unknown provenance that was unavailable. The Adnams was OK but my companions Flagondry was appalling (note the Monday ale club here, not sure I’d bother on this evidence!). Get the feeling the management in this place need a kick up the rear.
