105 Western Rd Tring

The Britannia was a public house in Tring. It was situated on the Aylesbury Road/Western Road leading into the town, just at the fork in the road with Park Road.

It was built by local brewer John Brown (1795–1890), who established several inns in the town and a brewery on the High Street.

By 1911 the pub was being run by Ernest and Etta Hughes, who lived above the pub with their children Ernest and Phyllis, and a servant, Bertha Louise Rance.

Their tenure did not last very long, as the pub was soon taken over by a new landlord and the Hughes moved back to Berkhamsted. Ernest died in 1945 and Etta in 1959, and both are buried in Rectory Lane Cemetery.

The Britannia ceased trading in the early 1980s and  it is now a private dwelling named Norfolk House.
