Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Albion in Kingston upon Thames is a thriving establishment with a relaxed and jovial atmosphere that ensures everyone is made to feel at home. The friendly staff at this traditional British pub are passionate about great food and drink and eagerly welcome guests who share their enthusiasm. Stop by and enjoy a couple of drinks – order a few bar bites to snack on too – or indulge in a full three-course meal that’s been homemade with the fi nest locally sourced ingredients.
The bar at The Albion boasts an impressive array of drinks, with a choice for every palate. The collection of beer includes ten real ales, 20 different keg beers and several special one-off brews from independent breweries. There’s also high-quality stout, lager and pale ale from the pub’s own brewery. If none of these options tickle your fancy, why not order a refreshing glass of cider or treat yourself to a glass of your favourite wine? On sunny days, refreshing tipples are best enjoyed in the terrace garden, complete with their own gin distillery which can be hired for private events.
When perusing the food menu, you’ll find yourself feeling spoilt for choice by the mouth-watering range of fare on offer. Starters include piping-hot soup of the day with white bloomer toast, crispy haddock goujons and edamame beans with soya chilli sauce. If you’re dining in a small party or simply looking for a tasty accompaniment to drinks, why not order a sharing plate? The vegan nachos with guacamole, salsa and jalapeños are packed with flavour and the Big Smoke meat board is an irresistible combination of barbecue ribs, chicken wings, paprika sausages, lamb kebab and homemade pickles. Although the seasonal menu changes regularly, visitors to The Albion are always guaranteed a tasty and varied selection of mains. Burgers and hotdogs range from a juicy bone marrow beefburger to a sumptuous vegan chilli dog, and the range of pizzas includes a traditional Margherita, along with toppings like chicken and pancetta, and delicious smoked brisket. If you fancy a more traditional British dish, why not order one of The Albion’s famous homemade pies? Each one is encased in buttery pastry and comes with seasonal vegetables, gravy and your choice of chips or mashed potato.
