As per the heading, that is what you get. We had never been there before and decided to give them a try, having driven past a few times. They had Sunday roast as a special on Saturday night and two of our party opted for this and were very pleasantly surprised ... vegetables cooked to perfection and beef was succulent and a generous portion for each diner ... the only comment which was otherwise was that the white sauce used for the cauliflower could have had a bit of cheese added to it to make it into a cheese sauce. The third member of the party had a ham burger and it comes with a fried egg which gives it a point of difference ... it wasn't however up amongst the gourmet burgers of this world, though.

Service was very polite, helpful and super quick.

I have enjoyed a few good meals here over the past month. The food has improved 100% since last i was here. The Mussels were outstanding. Very friendly pub as well.

We stayed the night in Albany and stumbled across the very unassuming looking "classic iconic Kiwi pub" quite by chance, and were pleased we had, their food was delicious and beautifully presented. Once wasn't enough want to go back for more :)

This place has character and friendly staff. Table service of both refreshments and good food that's served quite quickly. Eating there during winter will keep you warm......

Came for lunch....First impressions, not met or greeted stood for a while before any interest was shown. Only one other table eating yet it was close to an hour to take our order....because they thought they had ! Food then was at least another 45 mins, way to long for what was basic pub grub. Our guests were local accommodation owners who regularly send guests to local Albany, Riverhead and Coatesville restaurants.... unfortunately they wont be recommending The Albany. With other restaurants cafes etc opening it is even more important that guests are welcomed, the food is better than average, staff attentive, and the surroundings inviting ( no music blaring ) etc.I would hate to see the place busy as with only 3 tables seated it was too much for the staff to handle..... Bit of a shame really !
