Review on The Albany

Once the social hub of Thames Ditton, with summertime regattas and theatre during the winter, the Albany has been restored to something like its former glory and is now part of a small group of revitalised pubs with an upbeat attitude towards food and drink. The interior has a touch of class, with a smart lounge and dining areas, deep leather seating, teak furniture and modern fittings.

The menu follows suit, with sociable categories headed 'sharing plates' (tapas, meze, pizzete), 'little dishes' (scallops of the day, onion tart with Cashel Blue and rocket), 'leaves' (aka. salads), 'fired pizzas' and so on. Pasta might include rigatoni with smoked haddock, smoked Applewood cheese and spinach, while the 'stove/grill/rôtisserie' provides burgers with Swiss cheese, spit-roast chicken with lemon and garlic confit, and rump of lamb with chorizo mash and mint jelly.

Decent cheeses and familiar desserts round things off; there are draught and bottled beers to quench the thirst, plus a very respectable modern wine list including several by the glass.

    A special occasion spoiled

    Good setting with nice views across the river Thames but not the best place in town to eat. The service was painfully slow and someone else's order was delivered to our table before being quickly whisked away. It took 30 minutes for the waitress to fetch a pint of bitter for my father and then after placing an order for a second pint it was forgotten not served. My steak was barely warm and I was not even offered any side orders, however, a rusting galvanised bucket of chips was delivered with the meal.
