The Albion is a warm and friendly gastropub located in the heart of the city, minutes from St Paul's. The venue comes complete with two stylish floors; the ground floor pub exudes a modern, comfy feel, while the upstairs bar is a little more traditional and is perfect for hosting private functions of all varieties.

The venue offers a strong range of drinks, with an extensive wine list and a selection of award winning ales and continental lagers that are worth the visit alone. There's also plenty of mouth-watering options to tuck into if you're hungry. The Albion can be considered something of a sports fan's haven; with all the big fixtures broadcast across the venue on plasma screens, right throughout the week.

The Albion is a welcoming bar, conveniently located for after-work drinks and with the kind of sporting coverage that make it one of the best places to catch the game in the city.

We came here for our work Christmas lunch for nearly 40 people. We had the use of a private room and bar - the food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I couldn't recommend it more. Visited The Albion on 2017-12-15

I held a retirement party with about 40 guests in the upstairs room at the Albion and the evening went prefectly. Emma had helped me plan the evening and was very helpful and accomodated several requested adjustments to their set party menu so I was able to tailor it precisely how I wanted it. The arrangements, and delivery of food at pre-specified times went like clockwork. Our barman, Benny, looked after us for the whole evening and made sure everyone had a good time. The staff kept me up to date regarding how much of my budget was left at various points of the evening so I always felt in control. Several of my guests commented on how impressed they were with the venue, staff and food and I think some of them will be booking the Albion as and when they wish to organise similar events. Many thanks to Scott (the guv'nor), Emma, Benny and the rest of the staff. Visited The Albion on 2017-06-29

I booked this for 6 people, however I was unable to attend. My colleagues gave me feedback from their visit on Friday 31st March and told me that I didn't miss anything as the food wasn't very good. They won't be going back. Visited The Albion on 2017-03-31

Loved this place! The kitchen ran out of most of the autumn specials on the menu so the staff kindly offered us free desserts and a free bottle of wine! Would go back for sure. Visited The Albion on 2016-11-28

one of the best pubs in islington, hands down. Their sausage rolls should be protected by the national trust!
