Thwaites reopens ​The Britannia in Oswaldtwistle

The Thwaites pub has reopened with a new food concept.

The Britannia in Oswaldtwistle has reopened with a fresh new look and food concept after undergoing a six-figure renovation.

After a successful joint investment in another Thwaites tenanted gastropub, The White Bull, operators Sean and Erika Forshaw have expanded their portfolio and taken on management of The Britannia too.

The new food concept uses cooking over charcoal methods, focusing on high-end, locally-sourced meat, which is supplied by a second-generation family butcher. The dry-ageing display in the main dining area enables pub goers to see first-hand how the premium cuts of meat are dry-aged.

"After the huge success we’ve helped drive at The White Bull, we absolutely jumped on the opportunity to jointly invest in another scheme alongside Thwaites," says Sean. "This project will see The Britannia offer the Oswaldtwistle community an exciting new and innovative food offering, which we cannot wait to share with everyone when we welcome them back.”

Beer at the pub will centre around cask ales brewed by Thwaites, as well as guest ales and a new draught range, while the pub’s in-house sommelier has curated a wine and spirits list to pair with the new food offering.

"Sean and Erika have achieved so much at The White Bull, so we’re thrilled to partner with them again for this exciting new chapter for The Britannia, where customers will find a completely re-vamped food menu, as well as our fantastic Thwaites cask ale that has been delivered straight from our local brewery," adds Andrew Buchanan, director of pubs and nrewing at Daniel Thwaites.
