Rule Britannia: The Britannia Re-Opens

For someone that spent the majority of their childhood years in Malaysia eating rice and noodles, I do enjoy a good British pub. There is nothing that sums up English life to me more than rounding off a busy week with a Sunday lunch, kicking back with friends and family watching the rest of the world go by. With that in mind, there is no pub more British in spirit than the aptly named Britannia, which has recently re-opened in Kensington.

Built on the site of an old brewery, the Britannia is steeped in history and has been serving the locals of Kensington since 1834. Sticking to its brewery roots, it is not surprising that quality beer is featured on its drinks menu, with a range of craft and premium beers as well as Young’s award winning casks ales available to try. There is of course, a new menu that matches the country retreat feel to the pub featuring timeless British classics with a contemporary twist, such as slow-roasted pork belly, braised fennel and apple with cider sauce and crackling.

Spread out over two floors there is something to suit all moods, be it a lazy afternoon chilling out in front of the open fireplace in the main bar, or a more formal dining experience in the light-filled conservatory. If you have a birthday coming up, The Handbook recommends hiring out the first floor where the rooms are named after the Queen’s corgis: Monty and Willow- always a a win in our book!
