Evening visit until midnight close. To celebrate the reintroduction of cider here and a clammy stormy night, tried an ice cubed Thatchers Cheddar Valley, the bright orange looking cider.

A busy Friday evening session here. Every pint pulled for our group needed topping up.

Siren Craft - Under Current4.50ExcellentI'm not sure if I've ever rated a beer twice consecutively on here, but my second pint of this is infinitely better than the first.
Siren Craft - Under Current4.50AcceptableI like this beer, but this pint is a pale shadow.

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 209 times, seen 486 different beers and tried 254 of them.
