Finely delectable choices: the gem of cuisine in Croydon.

The 3 different types of bread rolls were in-house made by the chefs/bakers, and served warm. The menu is kept simple in choice, but at the same time it varies from white to red meats and fish, then pasta, rice and more. The chef has an uncanny passion for his/her work: the dishes are a... read more

Thank you for your visit and your kind review. So glad that you enjoyed the bread rolls. We bake these fresh every day for both lunch and dinner, as well our complimentary amuse-bouche and other little touches that we feel complete a meal. It is all in the details as you have said. The parking can be tricky but there... More

Was invited to a lunch event with a friend and have to say, having been along this road many times I had never noticed Albert's Table. Quite quiet when I went with two other retired diners placed. I received a very good reception. The waitress was very attentive and very polite. Overall good dining experience. The restaurant was tastefully decorated... More

I went here a year or so ago and I must admit it wasn't a place I would have chosen, it was a family occasion but straight away I knew it wasn't my sort of thing. Its not a big restaurant but they do think a lot of themselves and with the small modern servings and the snooty staff its... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad that your family joined us for their celebration, but it is unfortunate that you did not enjoy it. We feel that we provide something very special and a little bit different to the other restaurants in the local area. Food and service are of course very subjective, but I do hope that... More

This is the second time that they have lost our booking and what is even worse they were so rude! The manager pretty much accused me of lying. I will never go there again!

I chose Albert's Table at random from a list and I was not disappointed. My choice of starter Duck Liver Pate with Toast was nice and I was pleased to be offered extra Toast later. My mains choice of Venison Pie was tasty too. My Desert Treacle Tart was a good size and filled me up to finish my meal.... More

Limited menu, but the food was absolutely delicious! A bit pricier than other restaurants in the area but you get what you pay for! The main waiter was a bit sullen, but the waitress who was serving us was extremely pleasant and had a good sense of humour. I will definitely return.

I chose Albert's table because it was local to me and the reviews were good. We were made very very welcome by the staff and the food was actually very good.

This lovely restaurant exceeded expectations! The staff were welcoming and friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the Crab Tart which was really tasty. The Roast beef and yorkshire puddings were amazing. Service was excellent - helpful but not intrusive. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend.

Three of us to lunch here Friday. On previous visits over recent years it was always the service and, sometimes attitude, that stopped me from awarding it the 5 green excelent status.
