I had come up to Kyneton for he weekend with some friends, and being the type of person that I am I insisted on catching the train up there and grabbing some dinner in the first pub that I encountered as I walked into town (dragging my suitcase behind me). As it turned out this wasn't going to be one of the nice quiet pub meals that I occassionally (or should I say rarely) have because as soon as I stepped into the pub and ordered my meal a group of people started waving at me. It turned out that a group of friends had exactly the same idea as me.
Okay, the Albion isn't anything all that fancy, and the only craft beer that was on tap was James Squire (though I have to admit that I really don't consider James Squire as craft beer). The staff were actually really good, and despite being booked out, were more than accommodating with by friends when theyread more
Well, have given this pub a few goes and can say, I wont bother returning, nor recommending it. Ther're 'one' vegetarian meal could not be made vegan and even though I asked if the kitchen staff could cater for vegan, the answer was 'No'. Needless to say the only option was to have minestrone soup which was 'ok', a side salad of tomato with basil which came with no dressing, big slices of tomato, few hand shredded basil leaves, lots of thick onion and no imagination. Very poor. I dont think they have even heard of 'VEGETABLES' as their menu has very little on there resembling anyting 'green'.
