After reading some if the reviews on here I would like to totally disagree with the bad ones, my maid of honour organised a cocktail making evening here as well as a tarot reading, I was made very welcome and looked after all night the staff were great fun and very professional and explained every cocktail when asked my family also agreed good tap ciders and lagers, everywhere was very clean and a very modern look, I loved every bit of my evening and would also advise people to eat here I have been a few times for tea and lunch and every time food was incredible, tasty and good presentation,

All in all I love the alb and will continue to revisit

A stylish, vibrant and somewhat quirky bar that still manages to hold onto class and professionalism. Under new management and leadership this once poor standard pub has been revolutionised into the sort of place you would happily take your partner, work colleagues, friends or clients too. Excellent atmosphere, brilliant customer service, great cocktail list that is constantly improved and a great selection of drinks to boot. I also have to say that the knowledge of the majority of the bar staff on the drinks is impressive and a breath of fresh air.

I would recommend this place (and have done on many occasions) for anyone looking for a stylish meal/drink.
