    Never disappoints! Wholeheartedly recommend trying the whole roasted suckling pig with a group of friends. Even better if you get a spot in the garden during summer.

    It's a fantastic traditional pub with a great atmosphere. You can sit and chat to the locals or have privacy with your friends. If you're lucky you might get to meet the resident puppies.

    Don't plan to go there on a Sunday evening to do your birthday on the terrace. They'll kick you out when you start singing happy birthday to your friend because they're scared of losing their licence

    The pretty walled garden is ideal for an al fresco lunch. The Albion is widely noted for its excellent Sunday roasts, and the kitchen in general has won praise from food critics far and wide. Read more

    Cozy pub with an amazing garden at the back. They don't have a big selections of beers but good enough to find something nice.

    Really nice pub. Spicy bloody marys & the roast pork belly was tasty (but no crackling 😣)

    The cheese burger was amazing! Not sure what kind of sauce was used, but it was tasty. The buns were brioche-y too

    The garden is great. They were struggling with the cash machines and the bar tap, which both weren't working but the staff was very friendly and did their best.

    It's a beautiful place but the service is terrible!They forgot 1order and I had to wait for it so my food got cold. My friend's order came out cold. More than enough people serving but not competent.

    For a fantastic party with 9 of your mates, call ahead to order the whole roast suckling pig with all the trimmings. Heaps of tender pork and veg, with fresh pork crackling as garnish!

    A tasty cheeseburger on offer, however, be aware that they can run out on a weekend. Triple cooked chips = winning!

    Lots of space to hang out both in the front and the back, so great for a sunny day.

    The roast suckling pig (need to order in advance) will feed 10-15 people. Has all the trimmings and is delicious.

    Very cozy gastropub, but food and wine are average. I would go for a pint of beer and some snacks only.

    The quality of the food has gone down in recent years. Still a pleasant place for lunch but no longer a top tier gastropub.

    The Earl of Essex still prevails as the best Sunday Roast in Islington. Had high hopes for The Albion, but it's overpriced and overhyped. Slow service, small portions 5/10. Could do better.

    Part of a group booking with orders placed days in advance. Food arrived over an hour after they told us to expect it.

    Packed in the summer. Looks like a home counties village pub. Posh cars.
