Description: Step into the albert lounge bar and you will struggle to believe it used to be an old drinkers pub. Gone are the fruit machines, pool table and jukebox; in their place is quirky artwork, comfy sofas and a back bar display to boast about. Take a step upstairs to the old 'rock room' and you will be greeted by a 65+ seater restaurant with exposed brick walls and victorian design A local family took on the two hundred year old building and gave it an extensive refurbishment to restore the albert to its former glory with a contemporary twist The key to the ALB is local quality food and cocktails with style made by people who care The ALB welcomes everyone children and adults alike. To ensure we have a safe, friendly & exciting venue we ask that you abide by the three tiers of our dress code: No work wear, No sports wear and No swearing

“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Its a very rare occasion that I will eat or drink out anywhere else in town. Whether im after the a la carte menu or just a little bit of tapas, it is always perfection. The staff are very quirky but in a very cool way. The cocktails are always on point and are great value. Just be careful, this place is addictive

“Out of the blue....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Popped in here for a quick drink on a Sunday evening, not too busy but the atmosphere was good, looking around very quirky, bizarre in some cases very friendly and professional staff, good drinks, best cocktail my wife has ever had, real ales on draught, will pop in again if i the area.
