The iconic 19th century coaching inn adjacent to the Burton brewery is often regarded as the ‘brewery tap’ and it now boasts a state-of-the-art carvery server that will operate, still under the pub’s ‘2for1’ food offer on Saturdays and Sundays only. During week days the carvery surface is cleared, the infra-red lamps pull up to the ceiling and the area then operates as a casual dining area with a table for large parties of 12 or more.

Tracey said: “I started with Marston’s when I was 17 years old as a member of bar staff and came to The Albion when I was doing my cellar training courses. Back then it was always known for its fantastic carvery which attracted customers from all over town. I’m pleased to see its return and I know that it will be a popular part of our menu again.

“I love the new design which gives us the flexibility of a carvery at weekends when it is most popular and then more dining space during the week when we have different things going on.”

The pub is open from 11.30am to 11pm each day with food served from 12 noon to 10pm from Monday to Saturday and from 12 noon to 9pm on Sunday.
