Our Story

Extensively refurbished in 2016. The Albion was conceived as a platform for the best in locally produced fine food, great wines and first class hospitality.

The Grade 2 listed building and former coaching inn comprises an extensive bar and restaurant downstairs – including its discrete ‘Lantern Room’ – and private dining rooms upstairs. These offer a range of opportunities for intimate dining on special occasions, family events, business meetings in the daytime and evening gatherings – including Christmas and birthday parties!

The Albion dates back to the 17th century and has long been established as one of Clifton’s most popular haunts. It is now one of Bristol’s premier dining establishments while retaining all the elements you would expect to find in a well appointed village pub.
