A pub that has 1 large lounge with the bar in the middle, Whilst the lounge is comfortable with fine views over the Thames, it is principally laid out for the sale of food. Although the bar had 2 hand pumps, there was only Doom Bar available on my visit. It has a large patio area overlooking the Thames but since it was a cold misty winter's day on my visit, there was nobody sitting outside.

Riverside eaterie trading on its location and 3 years after the last reviews the outdoor tables and parasols are still covered in insects and cobwebs, surely an occasional brushing is not too much to expect. Three ales on yesterday, Everards Brazilian-style Xingu which was refreshing but a bit too lagerish for my taste, Youngs bitter which was better than expected and Adnams Broadside which was not tried. The food for our party of six was of middling quality posily presented and a bit short on quantity hence I felt it to be over-priced but as I live 50 miles away I do not know what other local establishments might charge. However I have eaten better and cheaper in Central London. I am unlikely to return.

We ate here on a recommendation from a restaurateur friend and I must say we were not disappointed. We found the food to be both delicious and perfectly cooked. The wine was very good indeed and reasonably priced. The waiting staff (female,) were all charming and as attentive as they should be. (I do agree with a previous comment from 'morocco' that the male staff are somewhat clueless and do not have the same refined/polished demeanor of the rest of the staff.)
Luckily this did nothing to spoil our enjoyment.
Overall we had a lovely time, a very enjoyable meal and will certainly return here and would be happy to recommend it to others.

P.S. When I say the furnishings are nice, i.e. style. But The Albany needs to be cleaner. The umbrellas outside are full of insects and spiders which is very off putting when you want to enjoy an outside drink and I am glad we decided to eat inside.

Yes I agree with the person who said the manager (or who appeared to be) is unprofessional. What is it with these young wet behind the ears male staff who insist of addressing the older generation as "guys"! Hi guys, what can I get you guys, did you enjoy your meal guys". Compared to a year ago the staff are poor, the toilets not good, broken seat, no lock in ladies toilet. We visited The Albany last night. We know this pub and area well. The food was fare. The salad I ordered to go with my pasta main dish arrived with my starter. Then the waiter who looked as though he could be the manager, cleared the plates tried to clear my uneaten salad, still using the "guys" terminology. As myself and my husband are many years past our early 20s this term "guys" is rude. The prices are fare. The table we opted for was dirty and no attempt was made to clean it, so we sat at a clean table elsewhere. The location is lovely which is the great draw here. The furnishings nice. Improve the staff a bit to know what they are doing and address the older generation properly and make the food excellent rather than fare and The Albany will get a better rating
