This distinguished pub has survived the Blitz and 1960's redevelopment. Far from being intimidated by the skyscrapers that surround it, the Albert stands proud against its bland Victoria Street neighbours. Built in 1862 on the site of a pub called the Bluecoat Boy, it was named in honour of Queen Victoria's husband, the Prince Consort.

The large ground-floor bar is smart, comfortable and bright; the huge etched and cut glass windows allow the daylight to flood in. Other classic Victorian pub features include a heavy, highly polished mahogany bar counter which is topped with a period clock. An ornate staircase leads to the restaurant. On the walls hang portraits of British Prime Ministers, from Salisbury, to an autographed one of Tony Blair. Mrs Thatcher unveiled her own. Members of Parliament often dine here and for their convenience a division bell is installed.

This pub is popular with tourists, evident by the souvenir tee shirts, ceramic mugs and ashtrays for sale. Local workers frequent the pub too, but it can be very busy at peak times. Some steps to the side of the pub lead to a quieter, less used saloon bar. There is a good selection of bar meals and a carvery restaurant serves a wide choice of traditional British roasts on weekday lunchtimes and evenings from 5.30pm and all day at weekends. There's a good choice of well kept real ales too.

The original sign has been replaced with a caricature which is a pity. When Prince Albert died prematurely at 42, the depth of Queen Victoria's grief affected her ability to reign. The whole nation was affected by the tragedy more than any royal death since.

Note:
Restaurant opens Mon-Fri 12.00-14.30 & 17.30-22.00 Sat-Sun 12.00-22.00

Local attractions include Buckingham Palace , Westminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral, New Scotland Yard, the Houses of Parliament and the Bluecoat School, which is now a National Trust shop.

User reviews for The Albert, Westminster
My Girlfriend and I had Great Fish and chips, and the service was great !
The Albertsitarman,
First visit was on a cold snowy January day, mulled wine was wonderful. Sad they were out of Rugby jerseys.
The Albertammalone,
Ate there in 2004, great meal. We will be in London in September 2012 and Prince Albert is at the top of our to do list"
The Albertbooboo,
One of the best pubs in the area! Lovely but busy area of town. Dennis Tedder
The Albertbeadwindow,
The staff were polite and helpful and the restaurant is beautifully interesting. Will definitely visit here again - excellent value for money as they also do meals in the bar down stairs for 8 and upwards. The carvery is 12.50 but if you go onto the Taylor Walker website and register they email you a 5 voucher reedemable against any bill over 10 so my friend and I had a feast for a tenner each - a bargain for this area by any degree! Highly recommend!
The AlbertNatalieD,
I had read mixed reviews but as it was the only place that promised a carvery near to where we were we thought we would risk it. Thoroughly pleased that we took the risk it was delicious and plenty of it! Beef that melted in your mouth, juicy turkey and succulent pork with lovely crispy bits and an ample selection of fresh veg and gravy.
The AlbertNatalieD,
My friend and I were at Olympia on Sunday and I had found The Albert online previously as we fancied a carvery after the exhibition.
The AlbertNatalieD,
do you do meals on Christmas Day? if so, how much?
The Albertsusan66,
....if only there was a pub in Milan as the Albert...
The AlberttheQueen,
I visited The Albert on a what looked as a busy Saturday lunch but the food was stale and not luke warm. Not impressed by the staff either. I am giving my opinion just about upstairs, didnt sit downstairs...
The Albertlondona,
I visited The Albert on Sunday 6th March with a group of 10 people for lunch our carvery meal and deserts was fabulous, we were so pleased with the food and service we went back at 5pm for our tea cakes and sandwiches. when we visit London again we will return.
