Will Larter left this review about The Albion

Much as described by OB five years ago, the beers on the four hand pumps on this occasion were Leeds Pale (in very good condition), Butcombe Bitter, Ossett Blonde and Theakstons Best Bitter. It seems Butcombe is the regular tipple of choice here, as my Leeds Pale came in a Butcombe branded glass, for which the very attractive and competent bar maid apologised. There was a large crowd at the bar when I arrived, but the two servers dealt with the rush very well. Like OB, I can't see myself coming back here any time soon, but this back street local, winner of a Camra award for local community pub of the year, clearly serves a loyal group of customers.

Old Boots left this review about The Albion Inn

Café bar atmosphere and décor but with some traditional pub furnishings and six pulls of fairly prosaic beers from Theaksons and Caledonian although they also had an Adnams Ghostship and Butcombe Bitter. The Butcombe was well kept but short measured. Biggish garden. Nice enough but I won't need one of their loyalty cards in spite of the GBG listing.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Albion Inn

Small friendly stone built traditional Victorian pub just off the high street. A Theakston house serving two guest ales on my visit Everards Sunchaser and Castle Rock Preservation, both were well kept.

Alan Winfield left this review about The Albion Inn

This is a decent pub on a back street but close to the town centre.
This seemed more of a locals pub but it seemed friendly enough there was only one real ale on which was Tetley bitter and this was a decent drink.
This pub was quite comfy inside and i would be happy having a few drinks here.
