Mother and Daughter team up to reopen local pub the Albert Inn

The Albert Inn, a thriving pub in the Welsh town of Caernarfon has thrown open its doors this week. The pub reopens following a joint investment of £136,000 between leading community pub company Admiral Taverns and mother and daughter partnership Elsa Roberts-Jones and Shannon Roberts-Simpson.

Having undergone a transformational refurbishment, the pub will host its official launch party on Friday the 9th February at Xpm. Over the course of the evening they will host a local live band [name]. Guests will have a chance to sample a range of dishes which will be featured on the new menu.

Experienced licensees Elsa and Shannon have been running pubs themselves for many years and took on the Albert Inn 2 years ago. Local to the area, they have reestablished this pub as a popular social hub, home to local pool and darts teams and offering regular sports showings and live entertainment at the weekends.

The mother and daughter team have revitalised the pubs interior, creating an upbeat and exciting venue for the locals with plans to introducing a delicious new food menu, which will include homemade burgers, curries, lasagna and fish and chips.


Commentating on the reopening, Elsa Roberts-Jones, licensee at the Albert Inn said: 

The Albert Inn is a thriving pub in Caernarfon which is loved by our locals and visitors alike. The refurbishment has been a fantastic opportunity to make this great community pub all the more special and we can’t wait to launch our new food offer for everyone to try.

We’re looking forward to the opening night and welcoming back some new faces to the pub.  

Commentating on the Albert Inn, Sallyanne Sheil, Business Development Manager for Wales said:
