About the Pub

Conveniently placed for the railway station (literally across the road) but a very basic establishment. Open plan but with several defined areas. The pub is starting to achieve that peculiar timewarp status of a classic 1970s pub which is appealing to some but not to others. It is one of those places where real ale disappeared from the menu for some time but it made a welcome return in 2011. Accommodation is offered.

In it's 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 Marstons. 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 management since Aug 2017, though there is very little evidence of any change apart from the new pool table (Nov 2017).
