The Albion, a former fishermen’s pub in the coastal town of Cromer, Norfolk, has re-opened following a £140,000 investment by Admiral Taverns.
The joint investment, with licensee Zena Pye, has re-invigorated the pub. The interior boasts a vintage, timeless feel, with plenty of seaside touches dotted around.
Zena took over the Albion in July 2018 with the help of her husband Stephen Pye, who also has extensive experience in the pub industry. She spotted the potential of the pub following a career break, and saw the Albion as the perfect opportunity to get back behind the bar. As a long-time Cromer resident, she was keen to transform it into a family-friendly local.
The pair will be launching a new food menu, with traditional and tasty dishes available, such as sausage and mash, fish and chips as well as unique sharing platters.
There will be five cask ale brands available, as well as a regular guest ale. There will also be a paddle offer, giving customers the chance to try a selection of three ales. The pair are also building their speciality gin and vodka offer.
