@fitheach Yes, I know. I prefer to think that it means “The Ancient Briton” which is us.
But it probably doesn’t.
But it is the Welshest pub in my hometown!!

@TheBeastOfBaglan
The pub logo uses a silhouette of Britannia, that's the giveaway.

I'm reading Walter Scott's "The Betrothed", at the moment, and that novel uses Briton to mean Welsh. The other main characters are defined as Saxon and Norman, with the latter having the upper hand. Scott's later novels don't tend to use "Briton", instead the characters are either Scottish/Welsh/English.

@fitheach Yes, the history of it all is interesting. The Pub was always called the Brittania Inn (100 yrs+)....then shut down for a few years, then reopened as The Brit.....some progress I guess. :$
