    First to Review

    Located only a hop, skip and jump away from Elephant and Castle tube station, The Albert Arms is a popular establishment which caters to the drinking needs of a diverse set of punters including locals, professionals and students.  It is located at the intersection to a forked road making for an interesting frontage.  The interior is traditional but very quirky with an assortment of peculiar objects scattered intermittently around the room.  Comfy seating and lots of exposed wood make for a great place to relax.

    The staff here are lovely and very chatty and can offer you a decent selection of tipples at extremely reasnable prices.  Pub grub is also available with a plethora of British favourites including fish and chips, bangers and mash and shepherd's pie.  Although nothing spectacular this place isn't aiming at being a swanky gastropub and the huge portions and great prices mean you won't be dissapointed.

    Great pub all round.

    Since it's changed hands, the staff have become sullen and rude. Not ideal.

    A surprisingly nice pub in an area I am not too fond of. This place gets a 4 for the excellent bartender. About 30-40 people arrived all at the same time and as one of the last to get served I can say that he is fast and efficient and did really well on his own, given the rush!
    This is a lovely old pub and the couple of beers they were serving were not that predictable which was a welcome surprise.

    The Albert Arms has just reopened after a massive refurb, and the hard work put into the restoration shows.  The staff has always been friendly, and they still are, but the menu now features such delicious items as rabbit pie, fish cakes, roast duck and the always delicious bangers & mash.  I ordered a glass of white wine and I was asked if I liked a dry wine or a sweet.  When I answered in the latter, I was pointed to a wine that is now my new favorite, all thanks to the staff taking a moment to ask about my likes.  

    The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the prices are very reasonable, and the food is exquisite.  I live nearby, so I'll be visiting often.

    The Albert Arms is a super good time.  When I was a student at LCC down in Elephant and Castle my classmates and I would ditch class and opt to have a pint at this pub.  It's small and traditionally decorated, but there's something about this place that makes it really special.  Maybe it's because the crowd here is so diverse.  Students, businessman, random local scalawags, you'll always see a new face in here.  The prices are basic, nothing crazy expensive or crazy cheap in here.  If you want some good people watching entertainment come here.
