The staff are friendly and welcoming. The pub has an inviting and warm atmosphere. Occasionally some items on the menu are not available, but this is due to Greene King deliveries, not the pub itself. They have plenty of TV's showing all the latest sport...and there is a variety of events going on, on a weekly basis, including poker night, pub quiz, music bingo (for charity) and a meat raffle (for charity). They then also have monthly events including karaoke nights, DJ's and summer fete's, and even an upcoming casino night. They have a reasonable sized beer garden and front seating area too - perfect for summertime. It is not far from Norwood Junction Station, close to Harrington Road tram stop and Portland road where there are regular buses. Overall a very friendly, old-style pub that you can feel at home at. I would highly recommend..More

Came here today with my friend. Enjoyed the Yorkie wrap, although the chips could have been better, My friend had the steak and salad and asked for it medium rare. However, the steak was not good quality - chewy and was actually well done rather...than medium rare. The prices are good though so could not complain, however, would definitely not order steak there again or chips. Will try the roast next timeMore

Hadn't been to The Albert Tavern for many years and was very pleasantly surprised when we went recently. Very friendly staff, good service, and modern refurb makes this local pub well worth a visit. Will be returning soon.

Have been to this pub 3 times in recent weeks when visiting friends (we live in Somerset). It has been refurbished to a very high standard, and the staff are extremely friendly and the service is brilliant. The last visit was for a birthday bash,...and the food that was provided for the buffet was superb, a mixture of hot and cold, and the staff were so helpful all evening. Would definitely recommend !!More
