Description: A Great Portland Street pub with a sense of event.Just a hop from Regents Park, The Albany is a city pub known for its fresh, seasonal food, sublime beers and great atmosphere. Indeed, our daily changing menu gives the restaurants of Great Portland Street a good run for their money, while our well stocked bar, serving a range of speciality and Craft beers from around the world, as well as a large range of fantastic wines by the glass, offers something to suit all tastes. So whether it's our regular music nights or our home cooked Sunday roasts, there's no shortage of reasons to peel yourself away from the sofa and head for The Albany.

“Good food and friendly staff”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

I called in here for something to eat after a busy day being all touristy. The food here was lovely, I had sausage and mustard mash which was delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful. Was very good value for money and worth a visit.

“Bangers & Mash and Real Ale”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

I had been to The London Zoo, and had arranged to meet up with a fiend afterwards for an early supper. Spotted The Albany and decided to take a chance. I was not disappointed.

We we well greeted by a member of staff, and made to feel welcome. The bar was well stocked, with some interesting beers and real ales. I ordered Sausages and Mash, and they were absolutely delicious. The beer, from memory was called "Doom" ... nothing Doom and Gloom about the Albany.

A great place to visit, stronlgy recommended.

“Nice spot for a drink”

Very nice interior, good selection of drinks. Staff was nice and relatively helpful. I recommend sitting outside and watching the bustle of London life.
