          Anybody know why this pub is called the Britannia??? Someone asked me as a throw out question and now it's bugging me. Seems strange to name it after a ship that can't have visited here etc... Maybe it's just a nice name lol...

          Do you have a variety vegetarian options as we would want to stay three nights and the same thing every night can be boring!

          Yes, there are veggie options and there are different specials each night. In Ambleside there is a very good vegetarian restaurant called Fellinis.
