Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Albion

Very anonymous-looking pub, not helped by the dull grey paintwork and a seeming absence of exterior signage. Limited window space, low lighting and generally reddish decor don't really help once inside either. As a Stancill outlet, all seven handpumps were dispensing its own beers (eg. Folk Forest, £1.25, half) when we visited. As you can tell, I didn't really take to this place on my first visit, but there is enough here to give it another try.

After a short closure for refurbishment, the Albion is now resplendent in an external look comprising of two tones of grey. The interior is more colourful, with a tartan carpet and those internal walls that are not bare brick painted a pleasing shade of reddish orange - something between rust and terracotta. The bar seems to be unchanged, though the Stancill beers are now joined by a guest from Neepsend. I called in for a pint on my way home from work, and was served one in a dimple jug which was filled to substantially lower than the brim of the glass, though this was topped up when I asked. Beer is now charged at a horrific £2.80 per pint (up from the previous £2.50). The day of the £3 pint cannot be far off now.

This pub has now been taken over by Stancill Brewery and presents a large range of their beers on hand pump at astonishing prices, plus various guest keg beers at prices that astonish at the other end of the spectrum. All their own cask beers are priced at £2.50 per pint, but if you are in possession of a current Camra membership card (preferably your own) you will instead be charged just £2 for that pint. I called in tonight on my way home from work and had a pint of Barnsley Bitter - my favourite Porter being unavailable due to excessive demand over the "festive" period. Definitely an improvement.
