Welcome to The Britannia Inn

Bri-tan-nia Inn noun - Lake District Inn offering traditional pub accommodation, Lake District sourced homemade pub food and real ales, plus friendly and welcoming staff. The Britannia Inn has these in abundance!

The Britannia Inn is nestled in the breathtaking Langdale Valley at the heart of the English Lake District. Pub accommodation at the Britannia Inn is comfortable and clean, with scenic views and delicious rustic seasonal pub dining, serving breakfast, lunch and supper. We have two individual bar areas for day visitors and comfortable rooms for tired travellers.

Make the most of the pub's open fire and cosy nooks during those long Lake District winter evenings, and spill out into the garden for some stunning alfresco dining under the summer sun. The Britannia Inn really is a pub for all seasons.

Pop in for a pint of real ale and a quick lunch, or stay for a few days and enjoy our outstanding Elterwater location. As a Lake District pub offering accommodation, our hospitality is second-to-none.

Our website has lots of information about the local area, activities and events, from walking in the Lakes to the Britannia Inn Beer Festival - our celebration of award winning real ales. In every direction, there are glorious rambling routes, and views and mountain bike trails to explore.

Your Lake District adventure begins here -
