Albion’s Restaurant Review

Located within the buzz of Kentish Town, Albion’s Restaurant is a hidden gem providing an intimate space for city-goers and tourists alike to unwind and enjoy the best of British cuisine. Also specialising in Italian and French, you’ll be spoilt for choice – and with the candles lit and French doors letting in the cool summer breeze, you really will be transported to a European retreat. Just pick a cuisine and Albion’s will take you there! 

When being welcomed in by staff as friendly and accommodating as Albion’s, guests are immediately made to feel at home, and with a menu covering you from dusk till dawn – this is a place to linger. The menu, jam-packed with everyone’s favourites from the Instagram-able Avocado and poached eggs on toast to Albion’s famous Rib Eye Steak, offers something for everyone.

With the array of dishes available, selecting can be tricky – but for seafood lovers, the Seafood Linguine is a must. The prawn, squid and mussel linguine, topped with grilled cherry tomatoes and soaked in a red chilli butter sauce is made with love and bursting with flavour! Fish clearly being a specialty, the calamari, crisped to perfection, is definitely a highlight. For the carb-conscious, don’t worry – Albion’s has you covered with their delicious spinach salad – an avocado, bacon and spinach mix served with parmesan in a honey and mustard dressing.

But be sure to leave room for dessert, as this is a treat you won’t want to miss! For those with a sweet tooth, we recommend the mini donuts – warm, soft and perfectly plump, these donuts are served best when dipped in the indulgent rich melted chocolate and paired with fresh strawberries. To wash down dessert, Albion’s Hedgerow Fizz – prosecco topped with elderflower for a refreshing twist on everyone’s favourite tipple – is a must-try. 

With a goal to serve high quality food at affordable prices, we can confirm that Chef and Founder Tim Veselaj has succeeded. With perfectly portioned mains starting from only £8.95 and flavoursome cocktails available for under £5, Albion’s differs from the usual London restaurant in price, without lacking the best of the cities taste. And after experiencing these culinary delights for ourselves at the Kentish Town branch we’ll be sure to make our way round the rest of Albion’s locations across the capital – from Chelsea to Islington – one bite at a time.
