The 400-year-old Britannia Inn started life as a gentleman farmer’s residence before becoming a coaching inn, & it’s now the first stop in the Langdale Valley if you’re heading from Windermere.
With a dream location on Elterwater’s village green, it’s a must-visit for walkers, cyclists & sightseers. To quench thirsts, the pub stocks a goodly selection of cask ales include Laal Cockle
Warmer (a local brew from Jennings of Cockermouth), as well as beers from other parts of the North Country including Pendle Witches Brew & Yorkshire Terrier. Food is basic & generous,
offering the likes of homemade pâté with port sauce, beer-battered haddock, Cumberland sausages (from Plumgarth’s of Kendal), steak & ale pie, & mushroom stroganoff. Children have their own
mini-menu, while sweets include a house crème brûlée as well as the obligatory sticky toffee pud.
