Had a beautiful meal here on 4th August 2018. It was packed out. Very reasonably priced and didn’t have to wait long. Sat outside in the lovely garden terrace. Will definitely return 👍🏻

Busy pub but plenty of room an choice. Great beer garden on a sunny day but is sheltered so can be used when the weather not so good. Great atmosphere and buzz. Will definitely visit again.

Gorgeous decor and outdoor seating area, plus it sells Peroni! Unfortunately the meals we had were terrible. My burger was cold, under cooked and full of gristle. My partners lasagne wasn't great either. When in the area we would call again for a drink but...More

We came here as a family for a drink and a snack. The Albert was recommended by a colleague but unfortunately the staff ruined the experience for us. They seemed rude and unprofessional - having previously worked in bars, restaurants and cafes I can appreciate...More
