Another excellent pub from the people behind Big Smoke Brew Co.
This imposing corner pub opposite a leafy park near the centre of Kingston bears many similarities to related pubs the Antelope in Surbiton, the Express Tavern (Kew Bridge) and the first in the group, the great Sussex Arms in Strawberry Hill. These include friendly and efficient staff, a large airy interior with a range of comfy seating and small tables, a real fire, vinyl music and excellent food. The difference is that the Albion has the best beer range of them all with a staggering 35 draft beers, making this one of the biggest draft selections in London. This comprises 15 casks (usually including 5 ciders), 20 kegs and there are also over 40 bottles. The selection is really excellent, and you can expect around 6 Big Smoke beers alongside guests from quality breweries from both the UK and beyond. On our first visit we found draft Dulle Teve from De Dolle Brouwers in West Flanders – a beer you very rarely find on draft in Belgium never mind elsewhere. This is a proper pub, serving a fantastic range of beer, and we are delighted to immediately install it as a Guide ‘Top Pick’.
