My wife and I loved The Albert pub and restaurant. It is a classic London pub. If there’s just one pub you visit in London, then go to The Albert. Classic stuff.
The whole pub is ornate and rich in its deep, dark carved wood and old glass light fixtures. This pub has aged well over its many, many years. It opened its doors in the mid 1800s. It has been a popular stomping grounds for Parliament members. The Albert is about 3 blocks from the House of Parliament.
Their ale list includes: Young’s, London Pride, Bombardier, Courage Director’s. I tried all four and my fav was Courage Director’s.
We ate two meals there. For one meal, we ate in the pub in their non-smoking room. It’s a quaint room filled with the same charm as the rest of the pub. I decided to have the classic English meal there: fish and chips. Good stuff. I get sick if I eat too much fried food, but I didn’t get sick from this. It’s not too heavy.
We also ate at the restaurant upstairs. Go there! It was our last meal in London and it was great. Cheap price too. Lots of good food. They had Yorkshire Pudding. Funny thing. Very few places in London serve Yourkshire Pudding. It was our best meal in London. We noticed their restaurant on our first day in London and avoided it cuz it looked kinda expensive. We were wrong. I want to say our meal was 8 pounds per person including drinks. I love the Albert.over 6 years ago
The Lyceum Theatre was a nice setting to see the Lion King. Top notch performance. The opening act was mind-blowing. The rest of the show was strong and excellent performances were given by all. It was good to see that actors didn’t try to cover their English accents with American accents.
