Old Boots left this review about Albion Inn

Well known, multi-room, back street pub, almost a time warp as the wallpaper is old school, the furnishings are in keeping as are some of the floor coverings. The walls are covered in photos, paintings, posters etc commemorating the Great War. The larger room to the left on entering is probably the more public bar like of the rooms. Only two beers on in the central servery, Taylor’s Boltmaker and one other I didn’t record, it had Mosaic in the name so I shut down at that point, a pretty good pint of Boltmaker though. Don’t worry if you fear the curmudgeonly aspect has gone, there are suitable signs in the entrance lobby. Slight but noticeable toilet smell, and the beer was better than the food.

Brainy Pool left this review about Albion Inn

Still a brilliant multi roomed World War theme pub with a tranquil atmosphere. Loads of memorabilia, a piano, closed curtains. Also a TV that was switched off. Oxford Gold and Saddle Tank a pretty uninspired beer selection but it hardly matters in a place like this. To be appreciated until it inevitably changes into ‘just another pub’.

Quinno _ left this review about Albion Inn

A backstreet pub with a reputation – cantankerous/idiosyncratic landlord, a list of things and people barred from entering, WWI memorabilia and a traditional atmospheric interior – so we had to do this one! A two bar pub, the left side is a little more public in feel with floral patterned William Morris wallpaper and the most punters. The right side has two rooms with more early C.20th wallpaper and fittings (think standard lamps!), alongside a piano (which would be the only music if it gets played, as the piped stuff doesn’t get an airing in here). Plenty of WWI paraphernalia to admire, though I think there may have been more previously. Two ales, a dull choice of Ringwood Razorback and Wainwright (NBSS 2.5). The place is like a living museum and you need to get up here to see if very soon, as the landlord is retiring at the end of the year. Catch it whilst you can.
