Saltaire - Easy Road IPA4.10GoodHas the term IPA become even more meaningless than the term craft? I might easily conclude so
Redemption - Fellowship Porter5.10PoorAwful. Said to have been "On for a few days". No off flavours just very very tired and unappetising

The pub is found in New Cross, Greater London, SE14 6TJ.

Located in New Cross Road it could be in Deptford or New Cross. Almost universally described as the “best pub in the area” the Royal Albert has massively improved since its 2007 reversion to its proper name, after a time as the Paradise Bar, and reversion to proper pub values. Has a pubby space at the front and more of a dining room feel towards the rear, where there is an open view kitchen. Very handy for Deptford Bridge DLR or New Cross stations. Sports 8 handpumps, one of which regularly carries a cider.

We have visited this pub 115 times, seen 322 different beers and tried 150 of them.
