  Welcome to The Albany Pub



We are pleased to announce our new sandwich and burger menu, served on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Click here to view.  


We opened our doors in November 2006 following a major transformation from what was “ The Rat’s Castle” into Guildford’s only independent Gastropub. We pride ourselves on providing great locally sourced food, along with a great atmosphere and a community spirit. With a wide range of drinks from “Cask Marque” accredited real ales, our fantastic gin menu and a popular wine list to suit any palette.  The Albany has areas that include a restaurant area, sofas and high top tables which can be reserved/hired for you at no cost for any event you can think of: Birthday, Christening, Commemorative Event / Wake or just meeting friends we are happy to help. We are also dog-friendly.

As well as plenty of seating at the front of the pub, we also have a secluded beer garden surrounded by lush greenery and a real suntrap ideal for al-fresco lunches, dinners or drinks. Our food is superb with our speciality dish being the seafood platter. There is more.  We have four en-suite double bedroomsavailable, (one being a family room) all finished to a clean modern standard, ideal for a break, local wedding or visiting friends. Come down and try us out for food, drinks or both and talk to us to see if we can make your precious relaxing time the best it can be.
