Located in the historic town of Melton Mowbray, the Generous Briton is situated in a fantastic position, just off the main access street through the town centre and bustling market square. Melton is ideally located midway between the very popular cities of Nottingham and Leicester and due to the weekly market in Melton, and it’s deliciously famous pork pies, it is a great place to visit for both locals and visitors from the surrounding villages.

Pub Layout

The pub boasts a large open plan area with hard-wearing flooring, a mixture of loose seating and tables of varying heights, enables it to cater for both relaxed drinking or larger parties. The room has a large and welcoming bar servery which has a fantastic range of ales, casks, wines and minerals. To the rear of the pub is a good sized drinking patio and a sheltered smoking solution too.
