Olde English walks a fine line between being the real thing and a hokey Disney-style replica. Everything is English-themed and theyíve done a good job in making it look like what you think an English pub would be like. The tap selection is mostly British and British-style brews by American breweries. They donít always have a cask being poured - only on certain nights. The atmosphere is at least very attractive (this is supposedly the oldest building in Albany). Service has always been good. Food menu is very American, though. Fun for the kitchiness of it, and front and back patios are great in the warmer months.

English pub as best as youíll find in the area. Quaint small place with a decent atmosphere, and all UK beers. The food is decent, and the waitresses are usually good at watching your progress.... All in all, donít get too excited, but it is a nice place to drop by....

Beautiful old building that is as charming as youíd want from English pub. Not terribly exciting tap list but grabbed some cask ale which was fun and some 3 mo old from the new whiskey distellery next door. Worth a stop and right next to albany pump station

Try the Chocolate Covered Banana beer cocktail! Wellís Banana Bread beer and Youngís Double Chocolate Stout- I swear, Iíve had dreams about this beer since trying it! And donít try to recreate it at home, it just isnít the same. Food is good, though portions are small for the prices. Also, you place an order at a counter, though you still have a server.. seems a little awkward to me. Ambiance at the bar is incredible. One of my favorite "quiet" hideaways, particularly wonderful on a rainy day.

Stopped by for dinner and a few drinks. A nice brick building with the inside decor trying to emulate an English pub. A decent number of taps with pretty good selection; some stouts, ales, and bitters, as well as ciders and wines. Can get kind of noisy at times, but nothing terrible. Thereís no table service here, so you have to walk to the bar to get your drinks, and walk to the counter to order your food. The food is pretty good; had some fish and chips and a bowl of steak and cheese soup, which hit the spot. They have some games scattered about, so I played a game of Scrabble. All in all, pretty good, moderately priced, and a unique place to have a drink in the Albany area. This is, however, a cash-only bar, so bring cash (although an ATM is located on the 2nd floor).
