the Albion has everything that you could want in a pub, friendly staff as soon as you walk in. The resturant food beyond expectation. A mix of pub grub and tapas to share if you prefer, we Experianced both and no complaints just beautiful. For those that love their craft beer and local wine. Plenty to choose from on tap,... More

We picked The Albion based on reviews and weren't disappointed! It was the best pub food we've ever had. Great choice of beers to go with. The service was fantastic and atmosphere was great too - live band was going off. Definitely recommend!

Not just a standard pub meal! Quality food at a great price. Mark the bartender is just an absolute riot. And the friendly people will give the warm and fuzzies. Also as another reviewer mentioned, have a sneaky gaze at the blonde bombshell in the restaurant! Wowsers!

My parents took their friends here for lunch on my suggestion and came away very embarrassed. They had to wait for over an hour for an open burger and chips. The chip were cold in the middle along with the meat patty. They sent them back only have the same items out back in front of them a few minutes... More

The room was clean and tidy with modern touches. The shared bathrooms were clean and we never had to wait for a shower. Breakfast is basic but we chose to eat out so it didn't worry us. The pub is reasonably quiet so we never had an issue with noise. Very reasonably priced, and within waking distance to central Newcastle.... More

I stayed here on the 2nd of May 2014 based on the then 4 star (self rated) rating, it's now been changed by Wotif to 3 star based on my complaints and the complete lack of room inclusions and standards needed for a 4 star rating. My estimate would be closer to 2 - 2.5 star. Hands down the worst... More

Two story building, Pub downstairs renovated and clean, meals reasonably priced but boutique beer overpriced. Rooms upstairs clean but tired, no airconditioning, shared bathroom facilities basic. On main road from industrial area and noisy. No other food or drink establishment's close by.

A friend and I went for dinner on a Tuesday night. We had 3 courses (which we never do but thought why not on this occasion), entree tasting plate which was amazing, mains we both had chicken which was delicious and desert was amazing. We had decided to go there because we heard there was a new head chef and... More

My partner and I stayed here on a Saturday night and had a very positive experience. We chose the Albion primarily for its craft beer selection, and we weren't disappointed - they had a great range of craft beers on tap with a focus on brews from Newcastle and the surrounding area, so we got to try a few we...

Had heard rave reviews so tried dinner one Friday night. We were walk-ins and were still able to get a table quite easily. Great selection of beers and staff very helpful. Tried the charcuterie tasting plate and loved it. I wish it was larger or that I didn't have to share any with my partner.. The menu definitely gives off... More
