The Albert Arms
Venue says We are closed as unfortunately we had a fire. We will reopen as soon as we can.

Having been given an extensive recent makeover, this Southwark gastropub straddling the corner of Garden Row and Gladstone Street offers plenty of enticement to passersby. The Victorian building now looks like an appetising spot.

The food menu looks like it should be a draw, too. Dishes range from French onion soup, cod croquettes with tomato chutney and grilled sardines on toast with parsley, black olives and roast tomato salad to Ginger Pig onglets, moules mariniere, a spiced Provençale fish stew and pork chops with smoked macaroni and cheese, roast tomatoes and spinach. Desserts include sticky toffee pudding, a blood orange posset and a chocolate and coffee torte. 

Expect rotating ales on tap alongside a lengthy, detailed wine list that leans toward the old world.

The Albert Arms says
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. Having transformed a backstreet boozer into one of W1’s most beloved gastropubs, we saw an opportunity to take our penchant for great food, great drinks and great friends to the heart of SE1.

We are not a pub chain, we are London residents with a passion for food, beer and wine, and we want the Albert Arms to be a real London pub, a hub for the community, really. Our front bar offers a choice of fine ales, spirits and carefully chosen wines. Check our ever-evolving wine list in the quieter setting of our dining room, which can also be hired for a special occasion or for a business meeting. Our head chef Phil uses local, seasonal ingredients to transform them into moder-European twists on the nostalgic pub classics.

Not far from the festivals and theatres of the Southbank Centre, close to the Young Vic, the Old Vic and the Southwark Playhouse, our kitchen is open all day long, so theatre lovers can come in for a pre-theater dinner. Why not also come in for a cracking Sunday roast after a visit to the Imperial War Museum or to one of the landmark attractions of the South Bank?
