About the Pub

Conveniently placed for the railway station (literally across the road). Open plan but with several defined areas. In its early days the Albion was acquired by the Wrexham Brewery, before being an Ansells pub for many years. The pub sign is now a relic of the past. Burtonwood bought the pub when Ansells sold off their estate, then in 2005 Burtonwood stopped brewing and sold their pub estate to Marston's. One of the 15 pubs in the Branch area appearing in the 1974 Good Beer Guide (GBG). It was brief but here's what it said! "Ansells, Small friendly pub". It then threatened to become a GBG regular with several appearances at the end of that decade but has only appeared once since (in 1995).

New ownership by St Annes brewery of Lea Cross in June 2018. Normally two St Annes beers and three guest beers. A major renovation is planned to bring back accommodation and improve disabled facilities.
