  • We spent three nights eating and drinking at The Britannia. They have a great selection of local ales, the Coniston Bluebird being particularly fine. This pub has not been gentrified, but concentrates it's efforts on delivering quality food, drink and service...

Speciality Beers

Beer is great!

At the Brit we all love our beer and never more so that on a frosty winters day when we have our feet up by the fire. We always have a core of our favourites available, however, we also like to spice it up. Each week we introduce a guest beer, it gives us something to talk about and an excuse to drink more beer.

Always on tap:

Langdale Blonde

Brewed by our sister company Langdale Brewing Company from water taken from 120m below the Langdale Valley.


Our best selling beer is made from the finest Marris Otter Maltsand  Czech lager Hops, with a hint of citrus. Made for a sunny day in the beer garden.................

Langdale Pale

A refreshing Indial Pale Ales (IPA) made with Langale Spring Water and using Australian Galaxy hops. 3.9%

Bluebird Bitter

Coniston Brewing Company

3.6% ABV

Malt - Maris Otter pale malt and crystal malt

It is, quite simply, a wonderful beer. It is exceedingly pale (21-22 units colour), with just a hint of colour in its cheeks from the dash of crystal malt. It has a massive orange fruit aroma from the challengers, balanced by biscuity malt.

"Juicy malt and tart hops vie for attention in the mouth while the finish is tart and hoppy but well balanced by creamy malt. The bitterness rating is a substantial 36-38. The tangy fruit lingers on the back of the tongue until it develops a hint of orange liqueur.” Roger Protz - CAMRA

Britannia Special

Brewed specially for the Britannia Inn by Conison Brewing Company

4.2% ABV

The Britannia Special is based on Bluebird XB with added rich barley providing a unique and distinctive flavour that combines two of the great themes of ale brewing to produce something distinctive and new. The fine tradition of English Pale Ale is about quaffing, refreshment and complexity of flavour without alcoholic strength. Then throw in new wave American hop variety Mount Hood with robust citrus aromas and the result is a smooth ale with floral hints, light malt tones and a hoppy freshness.

Neddy Boggle Bitter

3.6% ABV

This is a easy drinking beer has a clean dry aftertaste. An ideal session ale made with traditional English Hops. Very easy drinking!
