Britannia, Boston

4 Church Street
PE21 6NW

When I was last there on a Saturday afternoon a few years ago the Britannia was a down-to-earth locals pub with football on TV. The website now describes it as: Boston’s main Fun Bar, with weekend entertainment, and is licensed until 2.30 am.

The Britannia is dominated by the massive tower of St Botolph’s, the largest parish church in England (photo 1). Better known as ‘Boston Stump’ the tower can be seen up to 20 miles away across the fens. The pub and church are on the bank of the River Witham.

The pub dates from the early 18th century and  is whitewashed with a red pantiled roof. It still has some nice stained glass leaded windows, one with the traditional image of Britannia (photo 2) and one with the enduring slogan of Bateman’s Brewery “Good Honest Ales” (photo 3).
