The Britannia is an award-winning riverside pub offering excellent food and drink in the heart of Guildford.
Boasting an enviable location on the banks of the River Wey, The Britannia is a popular spot for locals, and also a great base for visitors as it is within walking distance of the town’s top tourism attractions and the County Town’s historic cobbled High Street.
It serves a delicious range of traditional pub snacks and main meals every day. A Young Diners menu is available, and the family-friendly pub also provides high chairs, along with a designated baby changing area.
Specialising in real ales, The Britannia is ideal for those seeking a perfect pint. It serves distinctive Kentish ales from Britain’s oldest brewer Shepherd Neame, along with a range of lagers and wine.
The Britannia serves a wide selection of freshly-prepared traditional pub dishes, making the most of fresh seasonal produce, sourced locally whenever possible

The pub faces the canal, there is parking right outside. We were greeted with a very warm welcome, sat down in front of the fire and ordered food and drinks which were brought to us including a selection of dog biscuits on our drinks tray. The very friendly waiter then asked if we wanted water for the dog and brought back a bowl for her. The food arrived a we were also impressed how nice it was. All the staff were very friendly and we also returned the next day on the way home after our overnight stay. By the way, our dog was the only one in the pub on both occasions. People who think the pub would be over-run by smelly dogs, this is not the case. This will be a regular stop off for us now, great pub and a great find.

Back to The Britannia for another excellent Sunday Roast. This is by far the best value roast in Guildford and The Brit is an excellent place to go and have it. I realised today one of the reasons I like The Brit so much is it has such an eclectic mix of customers. Other things of note are the dog beds that are supplied should your dog need a nap and the blankets for your knees if you're feeling a bit nippy after that bracing walk along the Wey.
