AS OF THE 20TH MARCH WE ARE CLOSED

It is with great sadness we have called last orders in all our pubs for the time being to support the fight against COVID-19. But don’t worry, we are busy working on opening our doors again with the safety of our teams and customers as our number one priority. While we continue to follow government guidelines, we’re getting excited for the day we can meet again and raise a glass in the pub.

Until then, stay safe, and don’t forget us!

The Britannia

 

OUR VIRTUAL PUB IS OPEN!

While our pubs are closed, we’ve decided to open a virtual pub, The Lock Inn. We know many of our customers are feeling cut-off from their friends and for some a visit to the pub is the only social contact they will have in a day. The Lock Inn aims to help tackle loneliness and isolation by offering activities and entertainment to encourage interaction. We’re starting with a WEEKLY INTERACTIVE QUIZ on Wednesdays at 6pm and ROCK AND ROLL BINGO every Friday at the same time, with more events and community support activities planned over the coming weeks.

Welcome to the

Britannia

 

The Britannia is an attractive, historic tavern nestled on the banks of the winding River Nene, a couple of miles from the centre of historic Northampton, and conveniently close to many of Northamptonshire’s most impressive and important attractions. The Britannia lies less than two miles south of the spectacular Abington Park. Just west, towards the town’s impressive centre, is Northampton Museum & Art Gallery which celebrates the town’s proud shoemaking history, and the museum contains the white satin shoes worn by Queen Victoria on her wedding day, along with many other impressive artefacts. Whatever your reason for visiting this wonderful part of Northamptonshire, The Britannia is the perfect setting for enjoying delicious traditional pub food, and a bottle of fine wine or glass of cask ale on the banks of the River Nene. The charming Britannia pub has lain on the banks of the River Nene for several centuries, but the rich history of Northampton, and the county of Northamptonshire goes back a good deal further. A half-hour walk away lies Abington Park, where the ruins of a former village lie. Abington’s important medieval manor house was mentioned in the 1086 Domesday book. This grand and leafy park lies just across Wellingborough Road from the County Ground, where Northampton County Cricket Club have played their home matches for over 125 years, and a venue for the 1999 Cricket World Cup. Amidst the medieval architecture of Northampton’s town centre lies Northampton Museum and Art Gallery. This handsome structure in the city’s Cultural Quarter has the world’s biggest collection of historical footwear, including boots worn by Prince Albert, famed Victorian midget Tom Thumb, and most notably, the white satin shoes Queen Victoria wore on her wedding day on 10th February 1840.
