The Albion is a Georgian gem left over from a time when Islington was fields and farmland and where the regulars would take afternoon walks out of the city to visit us. With its wisteria covered façade and log fires, The Albion provides the perfect location to entertain, relax and forget the stresses of modern life, combining a central Islington location, just off Upper Street, with a picturesque walled garden situated within the Barnsbury conservation area. At the heart of The Albion is our passion for food. Our menu is all about seasonality and tradition. Many of our dishes have a sharing element for the whole family and groups up to ten people. In the summer months our specially designed barbeque informs our menu and we offer a wide range of meat, fish and vegetables cooked fresh on the grill.
We carry a wide selection of lagers, beers, real ales and ciders, and our wine list has been developed for us by one of the country’s leading wine experts and perfectly complements our food and customers’ tastes. The Albion is the perfect location for your special event whether a birthday, business function or wedding, from a large table to the hire of the entire pub including the garden. Our chefs will adapt to all food requirements, from snacks to banquets, with Whole Roast Suckling Pig a crowd pleasing speciality.
The Albion is a perfect gastropub, serving up award-winning food to Islington locals. With its cosy interior and wisteria adorned beer garden, The Albion provides the ideal setting for a lazy Sunday afternoon whatever the weather. The menu features traditional British fare but it’s the Sunday roasts that have given The Albion it’s claim to fame – winning the Observer Food Monthly award for Best Sunday lunch in 2009. There is a seasonal element to the menu, which in the summer, features a wide range of meat, fish and vegetables cooked fresh on their barbecue. The Albion also offer a whole suckling pig for 10-15 people, perfect for a special occasion and not something you often find on offer from a traditional gastropub.
