We ate at Albemarle in Mar 09. A great disappointment after some positive reviews. I had hoped that it would be a more luxurious surroundings version of Hix, with a similar focus on simple high quality British, but unfortunately everything was very unimpressive. It just shows that its not easy to do simple well.
Neither the cooking nor the service were near the quality or standard I had anticipated. The whole evening made worse by being served an expensive but clearly off wine, AFTER it had been “tested” by the waiter. They happily & rapidly changed, but it reflects a very poor attitude.
The restaurant was much better in its previous incarnation; pre hotel refurb. A waste of a good space in a great location.
I would stick to the bar, which is very good, and leave the restaurant to unadventurous hotel guests.
