The Albion

The Albion, Conwy, Caernarfonshire LL32 8RF

Externally unassuming town pub that must once have been dismissed as being nothing exceptional, but now appears on CAMRA’s National Inventory of historic pub interiors. Still bears Ansells livery. The interior, remodelled in the early 1920s, has a main bar to the right of the door, snug at the rear, and smoke room to the left with an astonishing inglenook fireplace with built-in seating. This features on the cover of CAMRA’s book of Britain’s Real Heritage Pubs. Now taken over by a consortium of local brewers so you might expect so see the likes of Purple Moose and Great Orme.


  1. Mudgie, I keep mistaking your Real Pubs strand for the Closed Pubs one and I thought "Oh No! Not The Albion!" Thank God I was wrong, this is a cracking pub and good to see it's in good hands.

    I popped in this bank holiday and was delighted to see this thriving on beer sales and a good mix of late afternoon custom. The different rooms are gorgeous, and the only downside was that the beer range seemed a bit too extensive even for the trade, meaning beer was only OK.
