About The ALB

Step into the albert lounge bar and you will struggle to believe it used to be an old drinkers pub. Gone are the fruit machines, pool table and jukebox; in their place is
quirky artwork, comfy sofas and a back bar display to boast about.

Take a step upstairs to the old 'rock room' and you will be greeted by a 65+ seater restaurant with exposed brick walls and victorian design

A local family took on the two hundred year old building and gave it an extensive refurbishment to restore the albert to its former glory with a contemporary twist

The key to the ALB is local quality food and
cocktails with style made by people who care

Cuisine: British, Burger Joint, BBQ & Grill, Child Friendly, Street Food Style

Four of us dined with you Saturday 24th January and we left very impressed. The cocktails we started with were brilliant and we could tell how much the attention to detail meant to the bar staff which just goes to show how much they love what they do! We all enjoyed a 2 course meal which was packed with flavour and again we admired the presentation! All four starters were delicious as were the main courses. The sea as was simply delicious! We will certainly be returning and would feel comfortable and proud bringing any friends/family along with us. Carry on doing what your doing! One of the best meals in shrewsbury I have had for a long time.

The Alb hosted a surprise baby shower for my partner and I was extremely happy with the price, the food and the drinks. They were very happy and accommodating to all our needs. Can't recommend them highly enough. Thanks

Booked the Snug for a party of 10 people and had no complaints whatsoever - had a cracking night. Wonderful and cosy atmosphere and fantastic service from the Alb staff who were very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable on the cocktails they create and provided excellent table service throughout our stay. Looking forward to our next visit. Many thanks to all at The Alb for helping make our evening so enjoyable.

Top marks across the board for our dinner at the ALB. Food was superb and the service excellent. We were a group of thirteen and our order came out in a timely manor, hot and without any need for changes despite the fact that we had several special requests. Would not hesitate to recommend and will definitely use again

Wonderful service, friendly and helpful staff. The sunday lunch menu was fantastic choice, food arrived promptly and all meals were delicious and portion sizes amazing. My two children were catered for well and I was impressed at how the waitress was able to offer suggestions for them. Although we had complimentary meals due to a issue on a previous visit, the meals could not be faulted and we will all come back soon for a visit. Superb! Thanks

The food was really lovely but I was very disappointed with the lack of choice on the menu. It was very limited. I would definitely go again and the choice of drinks and cocktails is enormous! Please expand your menu though!

Booked the snug for my birthday. .. just a small group of 5 ... had the zombie drink package which was lovely!! Great value and great taste. Service was fantastic with our own waiter for the evening who kept checking in on us. Would definitely go again and recommend the Alb and the snug to others.

We had our works Christmas Party from 4pm until late, starting with the cocktail masterclass, 2 hours in the snug with drinks, then the 4 course meal. Everyone at Harvey Telford & Bates Chartered Accountants would like to thank you all for such a fantastic day, food, service, atmosphere etc was second to none. We will be back again, James the cocktail masterclass has opened our eyes and tastebuds to new drinks, thank you once again :-)

Excellent food at amazing value for money. £19.50 per head for 3 courses and tea / coffee, you can't go wrong. The cocktails are the best in town. And even with a large party of 27 the staff were super efficient and attentive. The only issue some had were some of the chairs were uncomfortable. All round a fantastic night, see you again soon!

Had a great evening. DIY cocktails a lot of fun! Would definitely do that again. Portion sizes a bit small. Could have done with a bit more, but on the whole a fabulous time & fantastic service 👍
