The Britannia is a friendly contemporary pub located only a few hundred yards from the seafront promenade. It is situated in a hamlet outside the picturesque town of Hythe, with its interesting shops and architecture, Royal Military Canal and Romney Hythe & Dymchurch steam railway. Shorncliffe itself is well known as a garrison and army training site, and the Britannia is often the last pub the soldiers drink in before they go off on tours of duty.
The pub is light and airy, yet with a traditional feel, with a focus on great beers and excellent traditional homemade food. Their generous steak pie is very popular, as are the Sunday roasts. A peaceful atmosphere reigns with cards and dominoes available for customers’ use – and on Wednesday evenings there is a quiz with cash prize. Outside is a pretty courtyard garden with seating for summer, and two big, heated canopies - great for smokers, as well as a large car park.
