Initial thoughts were of a social club stuck in the 1960s . There is no character or atmosphere to this pub ,Im sure if it wasn't for its location this place would have closed down a long time ago . I waited nearly 20 minutes...More

Probably the worst pub lunch we have ever had. It appeared as if l had canned macaroni cheese with crab thrown over the top. He had chips (maybe a dozen), some dry scampi and chips. Expensive and tasteless. No cutlery or serviettes provided, contemplated eating...More

Overpriced below par food with kid size portions. Staff don't have a clue. No proper menus, just printed on dirty pieces of paper. Toilets look like they are checked once a week.

We have visited here many times before in previous years but today’s visit put us off returning again. We stopped here for a late lunch, so it didn’t seem overly busy. The tables were dirty, many items on the menu were unavailable (but no notice...More

Britannia Inn is "The Only Pub in Dungeness"! We are located in between two lighthouses in Dungeness and at the heart of Dungeness estates. It's a few minutes walk from "Dungeness Train station" of Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway. If you drive, please follow the Dungeness Road, you will see a "Dungeness Borough" sign on the left before the white gate which is the entrance of Dungeness. Keep driving for a mile and pass the new light house on your left and we are just beyond.
