Sadly, we only discovered the Britannia Inn on the last day of our stay in St Austell, but, we look forward to eating there again when we next visit. The menu has some lovely options and our meal was well cooked and very enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit and we just wish we had discovered it earlier.

Nice setting staff OK. Lunch was very good could have done with more of it. Parking excellent for disabled and facilities good. I enjoyed the food thought it was a little over priced.

As we were staying down the road we thought we'd just pop to the pub for something to eat. In fact, The Britannia Inn is more of a restaurant. On a Monday evening we took the last table which shows how popular it was. Varied menu with some interesting choices - definitely more of a restaurant menu than a pub... More

Came for a sunday roast with friends, firstly our order was forgotten so after waiting for a long time we had to order again however, it really was not worth the wait. The roast was extremely basic. It was not dreadful but definitely will not be coming again. Everything except the potato's was cold and overall the meal was bland,... More

Above average meals, slightly different and with a twist on the usual pub fare. Prices not much different to other standard local pub fare. Will return again.

Went with family and friends for a carvery, having never been before. Booked a table in the morning, and when we arrived had to approach a member of staff to find out where we were sitting as we were not greeted. A waitress took our drinks order at the table, but left us waiting for a very long time to... More
