The New Albion in the village of Flanshaw (five minutes from the centre of Wakefield) will open as an Ossett Brewery house on Friday 25th June. After concentrating on live music and comedy venues recently, this will be the first new pub venture since the short-lived association with Timothy Taylor's Albert Hotel in Keighley two years ago.
In addition to The New Albion, the Ossett group has two further houses in Wakefield itself, namely Fernandes Brewery Tap & Bier Keller in Avison Yard and The Hop on Bank Street, together with another thirteen across Kirklees, Calderdale, Wakefield MC and Leeds.
We wish landlady Angie Cromack and the rest of the pub & brewery team all the best and look forward to sampling some quality beer and, no doubt, classy decor next week!
