THE Nailsworth Festival kicked off with a bang on Saturday, providing some incredible music and fantastic stalls!

Even after I had stuffed myself with incredible cheeses from Whey More I still needed something to finish off my day.

Luckily not 100 metres from the festival is The Britannia Inn, a fantastic pub that has been at the heart of Nailsworth for decades!

What a perfect opportunity to sample some of its food.

The pub has lovely decor and friendly staff who will great you with a smile while the garden at the front is full of colour and the rustic building is the perfect environment for families and their furry friends!

The interior is a wonderful blend of the old and new, with exposed beams and bricks, mixed with a modern bar.

On the menu are some truly fantastic options, ranging from some pub classics, to some finer ‘wine and dine’ options.

They also provide gluten free and vegan dishes.

Unfortunately the menu is quite small, I would have liked to see a few more options but the dessert menu looked stunning, I simply couldn’t fit anymore in after my meal though, the portion sizes are very generous!

The food is well priced, with mains ranging from £10 to £17.

I chose to enjoy the Doom Bar battered haddock and chips, this was absolutely fantastic!

Though the batter could have been a little more crisp, the chips were fluffy, and the fish was full of flavour.

The Doom Bar batter provided a really nice extra twist to bring the whole thing together.

Paired with the Doom Bar ale itself I found myself stuffing my face to the point of over eating.

My partner decided to delve into the pizza, which you can order for takeaway.

There is a good variety of options for pizza, and we landed on the capricciosa, a mix of parma ham, mushrooms, olives, and artichoke.

The base was well cooked, crisp but not crunchy, and the toppings were well balanced, each element really standing out.

This meal really rounded off a brilliant day, the service was prompt and very friendly, as well as the food being delicious and hot.

The meal was delivered quickly and was presented brilliantly.

If you ever find yourself in Nailsworth looking for a meal, I would recommend you pop in to the Britannia Inn and see for yourselves.

The Brit is in Cossack Square, New Market Road, Nailsworth, GL6 0DG
