Britannia Inn

217 Manchester Road, Mossley, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL5 9AJ

The Britannia is an imposing grit-stone building. Marston’s acquired it in 1961 when they bought the Rothwell estate (who had in turn obtained it from Shaw & Bentley in 1902). The "Brit" is now in the hands of a PubCo and offers a range of six beers from the Marston portfolio that rivals many a free house. There’s a secluded dining area in the otherwise opened out interior.
