Albert and Pearl

This is a lounge/cocktail bar and I spotted Amstel and Kronenburg, but couldn�t read the other pumps as it was too dark and the names on the metal etched handles are too feint.

I asked for a Guinness, which they had, and the friendly barman served me a decent pint, but I�ll not be returning as this is not my scene.

No, it really doesn't seem much like a pub either. No real ale, high prices, all a bit chichi.

Now back to being called the Albert and Pearl, hosts a night called Decline and Fall among others. The website is another Pointless Flash one and the drinks list includes cocktails, wine, but not beer. Cocktail bars have their place (how about overlooking the Mediterranean on a warm summer evening?) but this doesn't sound like a pub.

I think the reviews below explain why it has closed down!
