York & Albany

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

On the cusp of funky Camden and swanky Regent’s Park, this boutique hotel, bar and restaurant (part of the Gordon Ramsay empire), set in a magnificent stuccoed Victorian pub, fits the latter better. The spacious, soigné bar area serves superior snacks like truffled chips, burger and pizzas at fairly well-upholstered prices.

The restaurant – an­ equally airy space with a Mediterranean-style courtyard behind (and plush basement overflow room) – seems constantly packed, with diners clamouring for zesty dishes like dill-cured salmon with fennel and orange salad or lamb with courgettes and mint gremolata. The decently priced and spritely set lunch is especially light on calories – and sometimes on advertised ingredients: legumes were scanty in a rocket-packed pea and broad bean salad with goat’s cheese. Estimably gamey chicken with broccoli and pasta lacked the promised hazelnuts, but was nonetheless intensely satisfying; bream with sweet, sticky, meaty juices was beautifully paired with puréed and sliced artichoke. Refreshing desserts might include a cool, creamy rice pudding with morello cherries.

Y&A is perfect for lunching ladies and better for leisured classes than business: service is not paced for those rushing back to work. In the evening it’s understandably popular for well-heeled north London family occasions. The adjoining former stables is a rustic-looking deli and pizzeria serving top-notch thin-crust pizzas.
