The Royal Albert opened on the corner of Cranbourne Street and Liverpool Street in the 1860s as a beerhouse and provisions shop [1].

Groves & Whitnall took over in 1896 and with it, the office and several houses next door [1], thereby extending the Royal Albert, putting it next door to the Union Tavern, a still surviving Holts house.

The Royal Albert closed in about 1961 and for several decades was used by Salford Direct Metals [1], although it appears vacant these days, next to the still popular Union Tavern, a Salford survivor.
