No WIFI, Cold, forgot both our drinks and our food order. Eventually got food after waiting 1 hour, but it wasn’t very good.

Had the best Sunday lunch today. Perfect roast beef with a great selection of delicious vegetables. Followed by apple crumble. We were sitting under the music speakers and as it was a little loud asked for it to be turned down, no problem at all,...just did it without any fuss. Can fully recommend this lovely village pub, great atmosphere and polite well trained staff.More

We visited on Tuesday 27th and asked if we could bring our cockapoo. We specifically asked if she could sit on the sofa as she does not drool or moult. The member of staff said yes as long as we had a blanket for her...to sit on and protect the sofa. This was a low Chesterfield sofa for drinkers only and not diners (we were told). The following night we spent over three hours drinking on that same sofa with Bailey on her clean blanket. No problems ... even the staff were making a fuss of Bailey whilst she sat on the sofa. The next night we arrived to sit on the same sofa, complete with clean blanket. This time there was a different member of staff on duty who just didn't want Bailey sitting on the sofa. Annoyingly, some of the staff from the previous night started to insist that Bailey could not sit on the sofa despite making a fuss of her the previous evening. We left. If the policy is that dogs aren't allowed on a sofa for drinkers, away from diners then fine. But, don't allow it one night and then not the next. Especially when we had specifically asked and been given the okay.More

Despite visiting Crantock for the past 6 years, this was a first time visit. Very impressed. Good varied menu and the quality of food and drink was excellent. Really enjoyable evening. We’ll be back.

We always come to this pub on our holidays. The food is amazing. Never disappoints. Only criticisms are that service can be unbelievably slow especially in peak season & it can be cold as they leave leave all of the doors open. Other than that...an absolutely fab pub. Nice atmosphere. A proper pub. Dog & child friendly. Nice staff. Will come be back, a definite fav,More

After visiting The Old Albion on numerous occasions, whilst staying at Park Dean caravan park, I was excited to ‘show off’ this pub to my friend from America. We arrived at 5pm and found the front of house staff very unwelcoming. We were told the...only table that was free was the one right by the open door for one hour. I politely asked if we could sit in the window, but was told they had to be left free in case any locals came in and they wouldn’t be happy if they were occupied! I wanted my friend to at least have a quick look at the pub, since we were tucked out of the way without a view, but this was not allowed even with our masks on. I totally understand the COVID rules, but there were very few customers in at this time. A lot of people arrived who hadn’t pre-booked whilst we were sat down, and one couple was allowed to sit in the main restaurant for 2 hours! It felt so disorganised. Ironically, the ‘local’ seats remained vacant for the whole hour that we were there! I was really disappointed as I was so looking forward to a pleasant experience especially for my friend, but found the staff rude and not friendly at all. We left cold and not wanting to return.More

We called in for a drink couple of times , firstly an evening very welcoming, had a couple of drinks inside very old world style very nice , second time we sat in the beautiful sunshine late afternoon was just as nice even surrounded by...dogs which is something you have to put up with in this part of the world and at this time of the year !! We didn’t eat here but it did all look very nice and well presented would definitely come again and hopefully try the food well worth a try , definitely the better option of the two centre of the village pubs !! The one opposite didn’t look to hot at all and was not an option for us shame as they were both fantastic places back in the day ! The Albion definitely won in any pub warsMore

We stayed in the cottage for 4 nights. It is well equipped and quaint. Double bed really comfortable. Good wifi connection and luxury of TV on every bedroom. Not ideal if you have mobility problems. Central for exploring the North Cornish coast. Crantock beach is...a short walk and lovely walks available nearby. Highly recommend this property for a couple wanting to get away from it all.More
