Wonderful welcome from a young lady with a huge smile. Real fire giving a most cosy atmosphere. Delicious luncheon - locally sourced ingredients, very well cooked. Generous portions. Super flavours. Incredible atmosphere, World War 1 memorabilia adorning the walls A "MUST" Historical Location.

We saw this when walking the wall. Fascinating historical setting with the streets of terraced houses near by. So different and such a throw back inside to what pubs used to be like. Staff very friendly to us, Great real ale and food was so different and excellent for lunch time. really enjoyed our session there. The only irony coming... More

My wife and I discovered this wonder pub as we walked around the walls of Chester. It looked so inviting, and we are so pleased we made the effort to investigate. What an experience, a real pub in the old sense of the word. we had a light lunch with wonderful beer, and will certainly return to stay in there... More

The Albion is an institution! Nestled away in a quiet corner, best found by approaching on foot on the walls. Not for everyone - literally! Children are discouraged, as are rowdy parties. This is a quiet, characterful slice of history. Rooms full of WW1 and WW2 memorabilia make for great talking points. Good beer selections, favouring local breweries. The food... More

We love to go to this great little traditional pub whenever we are in this area. Chester has a varied and eclectic mix of wonderful pub's,but this is in my opinion one of the best. We were here recently and popped in for a nice real ale,the pub was busy but not packed,just a nice crowd. We settled on a... More

Well worth a break from a City Walls tour to pop into the Albion to have a wee refreshment pint. Right at the end of a terraced row of houses like pubs used to be years ago. Lovely experience. If your not sure what you fancy the licensee will assist you with a fine selection of Real Ales.

This is a very traditional pub tucked away from the main thoroughfares in Chester. Its over 30 years since I last visited, and its hardly changed!. But in good ways. There is no telly, or jukebox/sound system. The beer is superbly kept, and there are no yobs or pretentious types in here. Beer I've mentioned, but don't miss trying the... More

If you like a real pub, with real ale, without piped music, hooligans, and other people's children running around uncontrolled this is the place for you. The food is good and the welcome warm. You could spend half a day simply wondering around the pub looking at the 'stuff' on the walls (and enjoying the beer!) If you think this... More

Took an American friend who was over on business. Yes it pretended to have all the things we love as memories but the atmosphere was cold and uninviting. Bar staff seem to have little enthusiasm. It could be so much better but sadly it seems locked in an uninviting time warp.
