This was a new venue for our group yesterday.Top notch.The food and setting really really excellent. I had a home made burger and skinney chips. Highly recomended.Do go you won't be disappointed. I am a fussy eater because I enjoy my food so much. I cook at home so when I venture out I do expect a chef that can... More

Really nice staff at Albert Mews and the Albert Arms. You check in at the restaurant that makes the best steaks at night. My room was #6 on top floor. I slept well and it felt very peaceful. I needed to get away to do some work while my family was on holiday. It really worked for me and I... More

I stayed here in December 2014 for 10 days while visiting family, and was completely charmed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, including accommodating an infant at lunch one mid-week day and at Sunday dinner. The food was delicious and the price was very reasonable. The breakfast waiter was very pleasant, polite and provided efficient service-- the biscotti was... More

There are some basics that you require from accommodation . 1. Comfortable bed - it was a hard mattress and the sheets had a hole in it. 2. Air - the place was painted the day I arrived I woke up and my eyes were bloodshot. 3. Quiet- everything is noisy , from noise of other rooms to outside. Banging... More

No one wants to receive a review like this. We really have only two options by way of response - argue our case or try and fix it... We want to fix it and have therefore arranged for our management team to all stay the night in the hotel this week and list any issues to be corrected. We have... More

I live in Esher and consider myself fortunate to be able to enjoy the excellent food served at the Albert. The steaks are AMAZING! My only sadness is that the burgers aren't served in the main restaurant just in the bar. Service has always been good. I can't comment on the hotel side as I live within walking distance. How...

Had a very pleasant stay here over the weekend while we were enjoying a day at Sandown Races. Rooms are adequate but a little noisy when other guests are coming and going. Breakfast was a real treat and included in the price. Very handy location and restaurant and pub has a friendly and lively atmosphere. Staff are very helpful. Will... More

Don't get along as often as I should (living in Esher but working most Sundays) but Sunday lunch at the Albert is always terrific value. Relaxed atmosphere and a nice three course menu to choose from. Never look beyond the 'odds on shot' the roast beef but sure other options are equally good too. My parents have also stayed in...

Made the mistake of taking my Nigerian girlriend to the Albertfor a steak last friday. Menu has shrunk to beer mat size since last visit. Staff dressed in black like the taliban where they get they get their customer training. £50 for chateaubriand for two. Menu studded with references to boutique mews hotel. Hence small, overdesigned and overpriced. Sums up... More

Dear Roytheryder What a truly horrible review! Let’s look at it step by step. I have no idea why you need to point out that your girlfriend is Nigerian, she seemed very pleasant and somewhat embarrassed by your behaviour! The menu at The Albert Arms is constantly changing and has always been based around the finest steak and freshest fish.... More

I needed to be in central Esher for 2 nights in December. And this Pub/hotel is certainly central. The food in the restaurant was good, (I only ate there one night) although the chef shouting or banging on the service hatch every time an order was ready, did drive my friend and I mad! The hotel itself is in a... More
