The Albion pub in Clifton has a new owner, Cornwall’s St Austell Brewery. Despite their Tribute ale being on sale in many pubs across Brisrtol, when the purchase from Enterprise Inns is complete the Albion will become St Austell’s first pub in the city.
The traditionally upmarket pub off Boyce’s Avenue dating back to the seventeenth century has in recent years built a strong reputation for its food as well as its drinks. It will become one of five new St Austell pubs.
Adam Luck, estate director of St Austell Brewery, said: “Bristol is a particularly exciting area for us. The Albion will be our first pub in the city and it’s an area that presents a great opportunity to develop both our beer sales in the pub estate and the free trade business following the appointment of an area sales manager in Bristol.”
A constantly changing rosta of St Austell ales and lagers on draft and in bottles will be available soon at the Albion, which will continue to operate with current landlord Owain George at the helm.
