Small pub right on the beach. Quick service - we had a pint each and some hot, fresh french fries to munch on. Clean pub, small, but lively. Patio seating as well. Can people watch or enjoy sports on the tvs.

We popped in for a quick breakfast. A great value. I had the traditional english breakfast with two eggs, english ham, and a banger. Very good. The coffee isn't the greatest but the food was tasty, well-portioned and fairly priced.

Great food with many choices. Pub style fish and chips, salads, hot and cold sandwiches, breakfast and daily specials and a neat bar. Dog friendly patio just across from the beach. Easy and fun times in Capitola Village.

Ate inside with kids and adults (7 total). They were great. Food cake fast. Fish and chips were the best! Husband loved Shepard’s pie. Niece enjoyed the fried artichokes. Will visit again when we are back in Capitola

This place overlooking the Capitola beach and ocean is a perfect place to enjoy drinks. However I would stay off the food. We ordered artichoke as appetizer. Over worked waitress (only one in the whole place), brought it with our food. Artichoke was not cleaned...More

So I was walking along the beach in Capitola, a first time visitor, and saw the Britannia. Being a Brit, I was obliged to check it out and was very pleased I did. Great range of beers, both domestic and international (including a well presented...More

Britannia on the beach is a good and easy place to drop in, assuming that parking can be found. My wife and I came late on a Sunday afternoon and found it remarkably light on visitors. Service was good. My Rueben Sandwich was decent and...More
