Square Meal Review of The Albion ?

With polished wooden panelling, inviting wing-back chairs & handsome church pews inside its graceful Georgian premises, The Albion welcomes winter visitors. But come summertime, you won’t find a spare inch in either the front courtyard or the large, comely, wisteria-draped beer garden out back. Both the kitchen & waiting staff can sometimes struggle to stay calm & match the demand. Food is traditional British with a tweak. At lunchtime, yummy mummies nibble on purple sprouting broccoli with poached egg & truffled hollandaise, followed by treacle orange tart with crème fraîche. In the evenings, the charcoal grill sizzles, & on Sundays there are roasts (for one, or to share). Prices are more restaurant than pub, but so is the wine list – & there are the usual ales & lagers behind the bar.

    Culinary Creep :: The Albion, Islington

    And the award for laziest blogger goes to….myself. I have posts ready to publish, however due to pure tiredness after work, all I can manage is dinner, a spot of TV, a quick check of emails, then bed. Repeat x 5 till the weekend when I can finally catch up on everything. It’s a little embarrassing it has taken me so long to write a post on The Albion, as I live so ridiculously close. We’re talking a 30-second walk. We don’t actually eat here too often to be honest, as on a Sunday afternoon, there’s nothing I like better than loading up a whole chicken with some butter and herbs and filling the house with that irresistible, unmistakable smell, but on those rare Sundays when Sainsbury’s closes before I’ve made it there, The Albion is a good alternative...
