The Britannia is located next to the River Nene, on the old Bedford Road, just 10 minutes from Northampton town centre. There are several hotels nearby and it is right next to the A45, which leads on to the M1, M6 & A14.
Last refurbished in 2014, The Britannia is fitted out superbly, being mainly focused on food, there is still a Bar area at the rear along with a Beer garden, overlooking the river Nene. There is mooring for passing Narrowboats to stop, which is always welcomed with interest by guests.
Overlooking the River Nene, the canal-side Chef & Brewer pub is now boasts a new look with an expanded dining area and a new menu, including dishes, such as grilled sea bass fillets served with pan-fried scallops and pan-fried duck in a black cherry and red wine sauce.
Chef & Brewer is part of Spirit Pub Company which owns and operates around 800 managed pubs across the UK. Other brands in its portfolio include Flaming Grill, Fayre & Square and Taylor Walker.
This is a beautiful location Pub/Restaurant that has real character, whether it is for a formal or family meal, a business meeting or or just a coffee, this is definitely not to be missed. When the weather is nice, the Beer garden overlooking the river is a real joy.
