We had a lovely table in the downstairs garden area which was perfect for Sunday lunch. The food was very good and quite a lot of it especially the Sunday roasts that were delicious. The pate and salmon starters were also excellent and all this left no room for desert ha! ha! You would never have thought you were just off a busy high street the ambiance was great.

We had a lovely dinner in the garden. The lamb was quite good but just a bit fatty. The chargrilled asparagus starter was yummy.

Went with a friend for dinner at Britannia and really like their food. It is always fresh and nicely prepared. Also the staff is friendly and helpful. The only downside is that it is getting a bit crowded downstairs and can be quite loud - so wish that they would keep their reserved dining guests in the upstairs room which is really nice and more peaceful when having dinner.

There were 6 of us and every dish was great, faultless. 4 of the party had steaks and we all agreed they were the best we had had for some time. Therefore if you like good beer, good steak and maybe a glass of red, this is the place for you.

My friend and I met for a midweek dinner and had a really lovely meal.
The food is certainly really well cooked and lovely flavours. Good wine selection if you want a bottle.
The pub has a buzzy vibe, quite loud for a pub with no music and the staff are mostly very attentive and friendly indeed.
Would return for another meal in future. If there is one criticism it is that the main meal portions could be slightly larger.

Food is always good here, have been multiple times and regularly recommend to friends. However the roast was slightly lacking, small plate and beef cooked through after specifically asking twice for it to be medium rare, and assured by waiting staff it would. Not great when Sunday roast for 2 comes in just under £80. Disappointed because I am a fan of the Britannia

We visited both before and after the Clash rugby match at Twickenham. Good coffee in the morning, in lovely garden area and an easy walk to the ground. After the match, a great atmosphere in the Britannia, only bettered by really excellent food.
We will return ...for a third year from Oxfordshire.

Intend coming back to meet friends.

We had a very enjoyable lunch at the Britannia. The service was very friendly but relaxed and not pushy. Although we didn't opt for it, the 2 & 3 course set menu on offer was good value. I had the John Dory fish which was excellent & my friend thoroughly enjoyed the lamb. We shared the pear & apple crumble dessert which was delicious. I would definitely come back.

Although usually good the experience on this occasion was very disappointing. We had a table booked early evening, several hours before the food service stopped. The menu on Sunday was centered around a Roast as you would expect. We ordered beef and our waitress took the order but said she would just check to ensure there were 2 portions left (which we thought was good service). She came back and said yes, all good. 5 mins later she then advised that someone else had taken the last 2 portions so they had run out. Ok, disappointing but that happens ... we then ordered our 2nd choice options. The waitress took the order but came back a few minutes later to say they had run out of that too :-( unfortunately there were no other options on the menu that we were interested in so we had no choice but to leave and find somewhere else to eat. Although we appreciate that demand sometimes outstrips supply it did seem very early in the evening to have run out of key ingredients! It was also a bit odd as when we were seated all the other tables had been occupied for some time so it's a mystery who managed to order just before us and clean out the kitchen. It would probably have made the experience less disappointing if we had been advised when we arrived that they were running low on options (we were early and had a drink at the bar whilst waiting for our table) or a least advised that various options were off the menu when we were sat at the table. I must add that the team were very apologetic and also gave us the drinks we had on the house to make up for the poor service. Unfortunately, I would be reluctant to book again based on that experience .. such a shame.

Sat at my usual table with friends - it was really empty at the start & then got really busy.
it was hard to determine from the menu what was eatable ( gluten/dairy free options needed)
Starters were good but mains a bit disappointing. over cooked, greasy potatoes - very dry chicken.

My favourite pub in the Twickenham/Richmond area. It has a fabulous ambience and the food is terrific. The staff generally are lovely but the manager is great with the perfect balance of banter! Indeed some of my group want to go there just because of him.............!
