Southwark has a few good eatery places nearby, so for a lunch catch up with some of the girls from work; we decided to try the Albion which is situated in NEO Bankside just behind the Tate Modern.
When entering the Albion, it has that Martha Steward feel about it, very cosy. it’s a combination of a restaurant, a café, and a deli, where you can purchase quality food like, cakes, bread, meat, vegetables and also a great choice of wines and beers. If the weather holds up you are able to eat outdoors and heater lamps are available too.
Food is typically British at the Albion, but a good range from breakfast dishes to desserts. From the menu my colleague opted for the Kedgeree (£10.50) and myself and the other diner opted for the Montgomery Cheddar and Broccoli Tart, which was the autumn tart of the day (£10.75).
The food arrived in good time, and it was extremely good. All the 3 diners raved on about the flavours of the dishes and how fresh the ingredients tasted. Only negative I had about the tart is that it needed some sort of saucy to accompany it, apart from that it was delish!
The Albion makes a great lunch spot, an escape place after visiting the Tate Modern or somewhere to go to for that quick coffee or tea with maybe something sweet to accompany it, and a good friend for a catch up.
