The Albemarle in my opinion has improved so much since the revamp. The restaurant seems to have a lighter feel to it with a few more contemporary touches to it than in its previous incarnation. The menu is still hugely extensive and will certainly give you problems with so much to choose from. For my starter I settled with Dorset dressed crab with landcress – very fresh and tasty while my partner was persuaded by me to try the potted Morecambe Bay shrimps (One of the specialities from my original locale). My main was the Blythburgh pork cutlet with apple mash and Cumbrian black pudding and was absolutely superb. Feeling like a little bit of a pig we finished off with some fab bramley apple pie then a selection of cheeses. Prices are very reasonable taking into account you are dining in a Mayfair Hotel. The set lunch menu and pre-theatre dining menus also look a bargain at £25/£30 for 2 or 3 courses. Atmosphere can be mixed depending on the residents but was generally pleasant and relaxed. I'd definitely suggest stopping off at the Donovan Bar afterwards for a couple of cocktails.
