Siren Craft - Suspended in Mosaic4.00GoodMurky as the name suggests, with a sharp hop taste
Almasty - Breakfast IPA6.00AcceptableNo idea what to make of this, the murkiest muddiest beer I think I have ever had. Balanced in taste but a real disappointment as an alleged IPA

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 162 times, seen 413 different beers and tried 205 of them.
