The Olde English Pub

Relaxing English Pub for those who want an authentic experience

Oh, garden nights we love you so... and this Frozen Paloma too, of course!

On days like this with a little chill in the air, the seafood stew with curry wine broth is the perfect remedy. Don’t forget to use that toasted naan to soak up all that goodness!

Pop in for a visit at the #littlehousewithbeerinit, and we’ll have a cold one ready for you!

It’s the weekend, Albany!
We’re officially ready for summer at the #littlehousewithbeerinit. The garden gates have finally swung open, the sun is shining & drinks are flowing from the garden bar! ☀️🍻🌺

Our FAVORITE, Girl Blue, will be belting it out in the garden this Friday evening! Head down to start your weekend off with us & the best set of pipes we’ve ever heard.

We have BIG plans for the garden & patio this year! Thanks to Robinson Ace Hardware & Garden Center for working with us to select the best flowers for this #littlehousewithbeerinit

Good luck to everyone participating in the Workforce Challenge this evening! If the weather participates, we’ll be opening the garden, so you can enjoy a cold one after the race right here with us! Downtown Albany, New York Discover Albany

One of our old favorites on the spring menu, but with a twist! Seafood Stew: shrimp, Atlantic cod, scallops, mussels, barley, tomato, asparagus with curry wine broth, cilantro and toasted naan.

Whether you’re relaxing by the fire or enjoying the patio, this one is checking all of the boxes!

Ring us on 518-434-6533 to make your reservations!

What a weekend! Thanks to all of our guests who stopped by to celebrate Mother’s Day, graduations, birthdays or just to unwind with us!
Barney, one of our cutest guests of the weekend, took some time to stop and smell the flowers and enjoy a cold one, like we all should! Don’t worry, his was Dog Beer that we now carry from Mutts & Barley!!
