Purpose

Whether it is marvelling the food in the restaurant, swapping tales in the bar, or sneaking in a sundowner on the patio, we are bringing back the proper London pub. So if you’ve lived in South London all your life, or you fancy finding a new destination for a cracking Sunday roast, then we can’t think of any reason not to make the trip.

Plus, picture this. The winter season is drawing in, and we all know what that means - getting a bunch of friends together for a good old holiday catch-up. But is the bar big enough, I hear you say. Can I fit my ever expanding friend base in the restaurant? Well have no fear, as the Albert Arms has got you covered. Take a seat in our private dining room, where you can enjoy all the perks we have to offer, in the sanctity of your own upstairs hideaway.

People

Setting up a restaurant is no mean feat. But running one can drive even the most level-headed of us to the brink of insanity. It takes more than just a gaggle of people making and serving. But a crack team of hard-working, big-dreaming, and awe inspiring individuals who have known each other for years.

Darren and Phil, along with a group of us who have journeyed with them from North of the River, are what makes the Albert Arms a place you experience, not just a place you visit.

Past

Having transformed a back street boozer into one of W1’s most beloved gastropubs, Darren and Phil saw an opportunity to take a penchant for great food, great drinks and great friends to the heart of SE1.

After an overhaul of biblical proportions which had the locals chomping at the bit to get back inside, this charming Victorian pub is now back in action. And man-o-man was it worth the wait.

Plates

Now to the pièce de résistance. Phil Smith, the most unclassical of classically trained chefs will have you scratching your head until its sore. Taking seemingly bewildering ingredients and transforming them into modern European twists on the nostalgic pub classics.

From seared wood pigeon and coco de paimpol beans on toast, to the eye popping and lip smacking buffalo chicken hearts (yes you read that right), the emphasis on local, seasonal, and downright delectable is evident in everything he does.
