Sort out, as I am a massive WBA Fan. Just had to come for a look.

As you'd expect, a great pub for the football - including one TV facing out into the street so that the smokers don't miss a thing as they sit under the awning.

Fullers beer noticed - I went for a London Pride and a first ever Olivers Island. Both in great condition.

Decent "proper" pub. They had four hand pumps on, including a red beer, Deuchars and Anarchy Brew Co's Grin & Bare it (tasty). We were only passing through but the locals seemed a good natured crowd. Probably gets busy when there's football on (bizarre spot for a West Brom pub, but it takes all sorts). And they were playing the Libertines – so Albion in more than one way!

Random albion boozer tooked away in Bethnal green. Decent selection of ales. Football on the telly and friendly staff. Only probelm was a bit small.

Nice proper pub on my Hackney pub crawl. I'm pretty smashed by this point though.

Good football pub - get a good atmosphere for matches without too many dickheads. Ale selection is indeed slim, but there is often an unusual guest and the clientele is varied.

A group of us dropped in here before a Colchester away game at Leyton Orient. We'd heard it was a football themed ale pub. The pub is decorated with football scarves and pennants with a definite WBA theme. A little disappointed with the ale range, just two handpumps and one was Greede King. However, there was a warm welcome from the staff and the locals. Certainly worth a visit for any ale drinking football fan. We'll be sending something Colchester United related to cover up the dodgy Southend pennant! :o)

A nice pub except for the beer - on our recent visit the Pitfield Organic was like vinegar - lots of people turned their noses up at it yet no attempt was made to take it off - it seems they would sell it regardless. A real shame...

I don't know why this pub hasn't attracted more comments/ratings. It's a great little pub just up from Broadway Market, opposite Hackney City Farm. This is everything that the Cat and Mutton isn't, and it's only 5 minutes walk away - it has friendly staff and customers, a good atmosphere, decent ale (the Epping Forest is especially good), a pleasant outside area, and its reasonably priced. I've started drinking here more and more. It also has a book club and some kind of walking group that meet there.

A West Brom pub in Bethnal Green? Yes it is true! And a great pub it is too. Superb for watching the football, no matter who you support. Very friendly bar staff make you feel like a regular. Highly recommended!

Friendly landlord. He wanted to impress with the super super cold Coors. As the crystals were not in a shape he was happy with, he gave us a pint on the house. The theme is definitely football! The pub has a good layout.

Great pub for the footy fan, although I may be biased as an Albion fan. Lovely bar staff, cheap beer, just a shame it's such a pain in the arse to get to!

I visited The Albion on my brother's recommendation. Well by Jesus' whiskers! This really is a fantastic pub. No messing around, strong largers and friendly locals. The bar staff are the best I've ever met in a boozer. I don't want to let out the big secret but 'The Monday Club' is one of the truly great experiences in my life.
Kiss myself.

a great pub for all football fans, owned by a Baggies fan (hence the name)! the friendly bar staff, beer garden and football memorabilia plastered all over the walls and ceilings mean this is the place to watch Euro 2004 if you can find yourself a seat.

i live in north london, miles from the pub, but will probably still try to head there for some of the games just because its such a football fan's paradise!

Lively little boozer with footy on regularly, London Pride on tap, painted in black and white stripes so maybe there's a West Brom thing going on. Outside area also.
