Excellent traditional small pub which I guess is largely overlooked by tourists, as it is half way up a hill across the bridge to the other side of the Totnes town centre. But this is a gem of a pub and you should search it out if visiting Totnes.
The Albert (which is named after Albert Einstein for some local reason that my wife did explain to me but I have now forgotten) is home to the Bridgetown Brewery, which opened about a year ago and is resident out back of the pub. It brews two ales - Albert Ale at 3.8% and Real Ale Activity, which is 4.8%, and a Stout (Rockfish Oyster Stout) at 4.6%. Tried them all and the Albert Ale was more to my taste. It also had Dartmoor Jail Ale during the week I visited
It’s a two bar pub but you could easily miss this fact as the ‘lounge bar’ is tucked away with its own door around the back. This would be a real shame as this back bar is a superb snug and is full of dusty old stuff like the back bars used to be. For example there is an extensive collection of old snuffboxes displayed on the beam above the jump.
Also found a bar billiards table in the alley way to the garden and toilets and had to relive my youth, even though the Landlord explained that someone had walked off with two of the mushrooms.
Knowledgeable and friendly Landlord and an interesting mix of colourful locals who were more than happy for you to join in with their conversations.
So to conclude, The Albert is a throwback to the days when pubs were social drinking houses for the local community. It’s a gem. If you visit Totnes, don’t miss it...

Only Free House left in Totnes - and it shows! In my opinion the best pub in town.

Now a brew pub - currently brewing 2 ales, Albert Ale @ 3.8% and Real Ale Ativity @ 4.8%
