We have been made aware of this happening Last week and have spoken to those involved. This should not happen again. We trust on your next visit you have a more relaxed visit.

I love to come to The Albany, there’s always a friendly welcome even for the dogs. The food is of great value and the selection of drinks should have something for everyone. This is one of my favourite local pubs!

Regular visitor to this pub. Bar staff are all exceptionally friendly and provide great service, especially Daniel, Bethany and Martha. Whether just want a chilled pint with friends or big gathering in beer garden during summer this is great place to be.

One word. Ffion. Probably the best barperson in the world. Wonderful knowledge/service. Very traditional, warm and friendly. Needs some shelter for the dying breed that is the modern smoker.
