The have made a nice job of this rough and ready boozer .Had a few teething problems but should develop into a nice pub .8 cask beers on but prices are a bit high for the area or maybe too high for my liking.Outside uncovered seating area at rear.

This backstreet boozer a few minutes' walk from Griffin Park has been resurrected and renamed and is a world away from the dubious establishment of previous recollection. Bare boards, exposed brick, the odd bit of wood and a grey/green paint job comprise the decor of the chunky L-shaped, high-ceilinged room. A chamfered L-shaped bar offered seven real ales (an eighth clip was reversed), including the award-winning Siren Broken Dream "Breakfast" Stout at £3.50 for 2/3 (not sold in pints), five real ciders and a keg wall with fourteen taps. Blackboards on separate walls listed the cask, cider and keg offerings along with style, ABV and price details. A fair few in on a Sunday arvo visit - a mixture of drinkers and diners - and there was a relaxed hubbub to the background of some vocal jazz muzak. Staff were on form - fortunately not be-aproned, and I wasn't asked if there was "anything else" after ordering my beer. There are some great pubs in Brentford and, although it's early days, this could get close to joining the ranks.

The Albany Arms has been under new management from mid June 2011.

The new managers are a young couple with positive and social attitude, they hope to welcome both old and new customers to this traditional type public house.

All are welcome, please don’t be put off by past reviews, they were in the past and the future of The Albany Arms looks much brighter

Oh dear…. When you pop into a backstreet pub during lunchtime any problems are not usually that obvious as it is quiet and any patronage is usually local. Not the Albany!

I had to wait, with fiver in hand, at the bar whilst the barmaid talked through me to her friends who were leaving. Once she had finished she was very friendly whilst serving me, but I had to go into the beer garden to finish my tangy half as I'm not a big daytime TV person and I was the only person in the pub.

One saving grace is that there is a pool table and a dartboard, but I think that 50% of pubs in Brentford have a pool table and dartboard so I'll be giving this place the Spanish archer in future.
