E TA left this review about Albion Inn & Truck Stop

A dingey, run-down roadside pub which now relies on passing truckers and caravan owners for its trade as it’s too shoddy to attract any locals. There is a large car park whose surface has been wrecked by the heavy vehicles which come in, and there are several benches and chairs at the side of the car park for those who can’t bear to go in, or maybe just for smokers. The collection of outbuildings probably once held a skittle alley, but now they just have the air of a Ugandan prison camp. Inside, the one bar that remains open is in the basement, a small, narrow room with a cafe-style counter in the corner. Neon lights from the 1960s, reminiscent of Bates’s Motel, are sited on the outside walls to advertise that the pub is open – the sole clue to that fact. There are several tables crammed in, leaving very little circulation space, and certainly no capacity for sociable drinking. This makes it much more cafe (pronounced ‘caff’) than bar, as does the menu of chips, burgers and other fast food. The place was heaving with flies when we went in, and not the bar kind. There was the usual selection of megakeg – Guinness, San Miguel, Carlsberg, Thatchers – and a handpump dispensing vinegar badged as Old Glory. The staff were actually quite pleasant, but that was this dump’s single selling point. Dreadful.
