The Albert was situated at 11 Princess Road. was sold by Punch Taverns to TXL Capital (BVI based shell company) in February 2014 and it was closed for 'refurbishments' in January 2015.
It has never re-opened to date. The offshore company successfully gained planning permission to convert the upper floors staff accomodation into luxury flats but lost a bid to build over the pub's garden with a luxury house. The pub is hugely missed by the community and before it was bought by these investors it had been a viable business supporting local employment and the family who ran it.
