BeerABVScoreNotes
Blackjack - Royal Flush5.00GoodEnjoyed this more than yesterday. I think the overriding nose and taste are of caramel from the malt. Maybe my palate was cleaner today as an intense bitterness came over, that did not yesterday!!

Siren Craft - Suspended in Chinook4.00GoodCould have been brewed by Mr McMurk at the McMurk Brewery. Pea souper
Blackjack - Royal Flush5.00GoodI could not pick up precisely what gave the beer its flavour, which was an unusual one to me
Volden - Session (or Session Ale)3.80Not Tried
23 Sep 2018 (Philip Pirrip)
Evening visit until midnight close. Even more jam packed than usual - freshers' weekend perhaps. Depleted real ale range left for me.

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 155 times, seen 399 different beers and tried 196 of them.
