Adnams - So Many Different Worlds3.70GoodPumpclip calls it a "Collaboration Brew" but with whom not stated which is useless. Whatever it is meant to be it described itself as an English Pale Ale and all it really was was an innocuous bit of nothingness in flavour

Burning Sky - Plateau3.50GoodAlways reliable
Gun - Chummy Bluster4.40GoodClip suggests a new take on a best bitter. Bit of a misnomer in my view, with a distinct lack of bitterness

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 228 times, seen 506 different beers and tried 271 of them.
