Rob Hunter left this review about Albert Square Chop House

It's a "take it or leave it" pub as far as I'm concerned. If you're after real ale it seems to only offer JW Lees beers on cask, but at prices higher than you would pay in a normal JW Lees pub. They did have one from JW Lees Boilerhouse Craft range which was only OK and nothing special, and had that JW Lees chemical aftertaste.

The level of cocktail fuckery going on at the bar almost made me leave out of boredom waiting to get served, and if I had it would have been no great loss. There are plenty of better places around.

It's more the kind of place you would take your good lady to, rather than a few mates going for a beer. There is also the restaurant area downstairs.

Service is in that corporate style, and the bouncer holds the door open for you on entry and exit.

It's probably a 5.5 from me but I'm feeling generous so will round it up to a 6 rather than down to 5.

A modern bar which, unless there is more than I saw, wasn't as big as I was expecting. Its nicely done but isn't a place you're really gonna be staying in for too long unless you're eating downstairs. 6 handpumps but only 4 ales. As its getting close to Xmas there was a giant Wayne Rooney, sorry, Father Christmas on the town hall outside.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Albert Square Chop House

The latest edition in the Chop House chain. The exterior looks like a small version of the Natural History Museum in London. Once inside, the deco is very upmarket, even the staff are very polished. We called mid-afternoon, so the place was very quiet. We had a look at the restaurant downstairs and on the way down, we noticed a photo gallery of all the tradesmen who worked on the refurbishment. Six ales in handpump, I went for Lees, which was pricy.
