Had a lovely meal with the same friends no less than a month ago so we ventured there tonight. Sadly my chicken breast was edged in hard black pieces and I couldn't get the knife through it. After waiting for another meal after it being sent back the other party had finished. Well one had a burger and left the cob as it was so stale and the other said the stuffing on the sunday roast was rock hard. May not sound much but eating out is a luxury and when you think you'd rather have stayed home instead somethings not quite right. Won't be returning

Went for a meal with the family. 6 adults and 1 child. Ended up only paying for 2 of the adult meals and the kids. The food on the others was poor and the ones we paid for were acceptable at best. Having paid for mine I wish I hadn't as I was awake most of the night running back and forth from the loo. Slow service and very disappointing food

Enjoyed a pleasant evening meal with the excellent 2 for 1 deal. Food was fine but to a microwave meal standard. A few leaves in the side salad were rotting. Friendly helpful staff

Been to The Albion three times between May and July 2014 and am surprised by the amount of negative reviews. Each time the quality of the food and portion sizes has been good enough, service quick enough and staff pleasant enough bearing in mind two main courses and drinks costs less than £20 for all but the biggest steaks/combo. meals. It's pub grub which inevitably means some of the food has been microwaved, but most is freshly cooked. Whilst not ligthening fast, the meals were ordered and served in reasonable time, slthough we did comment on how quiet the place is compared to a few years ago, but we didn't think the standards were any better or worse than then.

Because the menu is two for the price of one, it's only worth going as a couple or an even numbered group, but other than that, it's good value for money and will be going again soon.

What can I say? I went to the Albion a few weeks ago when it was run by the previous manager. The experience was not a good one. I made my feelings known to Marston's as this used to be such a good place to eat with a family. Marston's assured me that it would improve as it was no longer the same manager. They even gave me a £20 voucher to go back and give them another try. Well I did and it was still awful. Waited ages for anyone to take an order as waiters stood chatting. Food was at least hot this time but my partner's mushroomy sauce could have been used to fill a pothole. He had also ordered potatoes with his meal and he got chips instead. Having waited so long for our meals he ate it anyway.

COME ON MARSTON'S, SORT IT OUT!
