A Georgian gem in London’s vibrant Islington, The Albion is a country style pub restaurant with a little urban gloss. Originally situated in an area of farmland where Londoners would escape from the smoggy city, The Albion is now a part of the sprawl but remains a retreat from the stress of London life, a relaxed space where time stands still before roaring log fires or in pretty walled gardens. Noted for its Sunday lunches, The Albion’s kitchen has been hailed as one of the best by The Guardian, The Observer and The Independent. It’s not hard to see why. Combining British tradition and seasonality, the hearty yet delicate dishes really are the beating heart of this wonderful pub.
