The following message was taken from the Albion's facebook page:
"We are sorry to inform everyone that owing to a dispute with the landlords
who now want to charge £200 per day rent, The Albion Warrington will be
closed until further notice. We will keep everyone informed via fb. Sorry
for any inconvenience caused and we hope to have things resolved soon.
Thank you all."
Doesn't sound good at all, sad, sad, sad ........
Good news....(you don't hear that too often)
I've heard today that The Albion, Warrington, will be open for business
again this coming weekend. The same team of Mark, Kevin and Gill closed the
doors back in August due to a large rise in rent, however it seems the
owners have at last seen sense in their demands.
Mark and his team have turned this place into a great community pub selling
a top range of real ale....it deserves your support.
Lets hope they hold the traditional Christmas beer festival.
News from the Albion........good and not so good -
"Hi everyone, Just a quick word to let everyone know what's going on as
there have been many different tales going round.
The official story is that The Albion Warrington will be reopening in time
for Christmas; Beers are settling in the cellar and other necessary things
are being done to make it the same welcoming and friendly place we've always
tried to be. If it wasn't for the support and aid of many of our loyal
regulars the pub would have been another casualty of the recession and may
have sat empty for years to come.
There has not been an official opening day set (although we were hoping for
it to be today) as we have had a setback. If anyone hears of anyone who has
broken into a pub recently and destroyed all the cellar equipment needs to
get in touch with the police as soon as possible to catch the buggers who
did the damage pictured below.
Owing to the damage done to both the cellar and the electricity meter, we
are hoping to welcome everyone from next Wednesday. When everything is
confirmed it will be posted here on facebook and we thank everyone for their
Seriously, if you hear about a pub being broken into last week, contact the
police on 101. We apologies for the sporadic updates but you will all know
something the moment we do".
Finally some definite good news........
Taken from The Albion's Facebook page:
"OFFICIAL NEWS UPDATE - The Albion Warrington reopens tomorrow (Wednesday)
at 4pm! We look forward to welcoming all our old regulars and newcomers back
into the fold. Merry Christmas everyone".
