The Albion reviews



By Serena A.

I was a bit alarmed when this place changed hands but needn't have been, I still like the atmosphere in here.


By P S.

The most cosy, relaxing pub in the area. Charming staff. A place where you feel comfortable taking friends or clients.


By C B.

The food here is absolutely revolting. A group of 9 of us went for lunch. Not one meal was enjoyed and it is fair to say we are not a fussy bunch. It was absolutely disgusting. This pub may be pleasant for a drink or watch sport, but avoid the food at all cost!

Where do Canadian's in London go to watch ice hockey...the Albion of course. It's taken over as the place to go to meet fellow Canadians in London. Was there last night to watch the Canada v America game and the atmosphere was just amazing. Quite like being at home but in London


By Pop P.

The food is yummy. The atmosphere is very pleasant. Perfect for a Friday night after work time with work buddies. Oh and I almost forgot.. the Manager-ess is HOT! I highly recommend it.

Monday night trivia is a blast (even though we are no good!). The Albion is right near my work so we often go down after work. The downstairs bar can sometimes get packed but we normally get a table in the upstairs bar. I like the relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere and friendly staff.

I visited the Albion last friday and was pleasantly surprised. The team were laughing and having fun which made for a great atmosphere. The food is good too, although it is merely pub-grub, it is done well. I will be visiting again.

I had my 30th at the Albion and it was a blast! The upstairs area I reserved was a perfect size and we had our own private bar. The staff were really friendly and no request was too difficult for them. I highly recommend it as a party venue!

Close to Fleet Street and St Paul’s Cathedral, The Albion is a Young’s pub serving upmarket pub grub and real ales to a mainly professional clientele from nearby offices.

The Venue
Its low roof suggests it’s an old building, but the décor should be familiar to anyone who’s been in a Young’s pub before, with an emphasis on traditional but relatively modern wooden fittings and furnishings, from the bar to the high tables. There’s an upstairs room which can cater for around 60 people.

The Atmosphere
Depends on when you attend – pop in for lunch and you’ll be joining bosses sneaking away with their secretaries and groups of posh-shirted execs getting competitive over their sales figures. In the evening, especially on a Friday and Saturday night or when certain sporting events are being televised, there’s a more varied crowd that also includes a younger and rowdier element.

The Food
Traditional but upmarket pub grub, with popular choices like fish and chips (£9.35), which comes in a huge portion but lacks the accompanying mountain of chips, sausage and mash (£8.30) and 8oz Somerset burgers with red onion relish and chips (£8.30). That said, the menu has its more adventurous parts, with lesser spotted dishes such as sweet potato curry (£9.65) and venison and red wine casserole (£10.20). The platters are also popular – a selection of miniature Young’s pies with chutney and chips (£11.50), perhaps, or a vegetarian platter with everything from fried halloumi cheese to samosas and falafel and hummus (£11.45).

The Drink
A reasonable if not hugely extensive range of beers on tap, including the ever reliable Young’s Special or Young’s Bitter (both £3.50 a pint), Grolsch (£3.95), Guinness (£4.05) and Fosters (£3.75). There’s a bit more for wine lovers, though, with a list ranging from Le Sanglier Grenache Blanc Old Vines from the Tuchan region of France (£14.50 per bottle) up to the still reasonably priced Chateau de Chatelard Fleurie Beaujolais (£22.50).

The Last Word
It’s not the most atmospheric haunt in the world, but certainly respectable enough to pop in for a bite to eat if you’re in the area.
