SquareMeal Review of The Britannia

A wall of whiskies – more than 100 in total – is a standout feature of this sympathetically renovated local boozer round the back of Guy’s Hospital: check the backboards to see what’s on offer, or ask the helpful bar staff for some spirited recommendations. The Britannia’s updated interior is all stripped boards and quirky statuettes – plus the odd comfy couch or two – but it makes a sociable retreat whether you fancy a dram or not. There’s generally at least one real ale on the go (perhaps Bombardier or Adnams Explorer) and the kitchen is kept busy, knocking out ample helpings of seasonal pub grub. You can also sit outside on the sun terrace when the weather’s fine.
