The Albion Refreshment Rooms was the original station pub at the old London Road Station back in the mid-1800s. It occupied almost half of the station's front building, i.e. it would have occupied the left-hand side as you walked up the approach to the station . It's not known whether the Albion Refreshment Rooms survived the 1880s enlargement of London Road Station, but what is a certainty is that it would have been a better bet for a pint before your journey than the dreadful Balcony Bar and soon-to-close Sports Bar which embarrass Manchester Piccadilly station today.
