Albion Café – Conran’s British caff

Whenever I’m not at the Albion ‘caff’, which is most of the time, I long to be there. It has a great atmosphere, delicious food, homemade bread and a well-stocked shop supplying traditional English goods.

As part of Terence Conran’s redevelopment of the building (including the fabulous Boundary Rooftop bar for summer and the Boundary restaurant for winter) the Albion café opened to huge applause and I’ve never once been disappointed. Serving a great range of traditional English food with modern flair, the menu includes my firm favourites bangers and mash and fish and chips, as well as a huge range of stews and salads. Crockery and cutlery is sourced from vintage markets, the service is impeccable, and the prices are reasonable for what you get.

My ideal time to visit is Saturday mornings, when delicious breakfasts/brunches are available and they serve side orders of pork crackling that I crave for weeks afterwards. It can get quite busy so be prepared to wait, but while you do you can peruse the cold desserts in the open-plan shop. There’s a lovely terrace outside, too – it has heaters now it’s freezing! I really need to stop popping in on my way home to buy treats.
