It seems like a good place to go and hang out after work and is very close to a variety of tube stations which is useful for the journey home.
Really friendly staff, a great afterwork crowd and a well thought out wine list.
It's probably a bit expensive by the glass but you may as well be honest with yourself and buy the bottle... then it becomes quite reasonable.
The menu is an intelligent take on pub food. When we were there a lot of the classic bar snacks (wedges, hummus, etc) contained sweet potato, for instance.
Good spot. Worth it.

A very nice pub and given they have more than one chef on staff, it is the perfect place for a lunch meal when you don't have 3 hours to have it. I think the chips portion with the meal is too small but that is because they are so lovely.
The food is always well cooked and almost always well presented. It is a bit prict but the atmosphere and location more than compensate for the cost.
There is an excellent selection of beer here on draught and they even have Fruli fruit beer. A really great place
This pub became my pub of choice whilst working nearby and was the ideal setting for the friday post-work pints (sometimes mid-week ones as well). It offers a wide range of lagers/bitters/ciders on tap and also some really good real ales. The food is good old pub food and comes at a reasonable price. All in all its exactly what you want after a hard days work.
The Albany is one of those places that’s great to go to after work for a few drinks, but is equally fab on a Saturday night (go to 'The Lowdown’ downstairs for one of their club nights, usually indie based) or on a Sunday afternoon for some good food. They quite often have comedians too and the selection of drinks is good too, it was a barman at The Albany that first introduced me to Sailor Jerry rum so hurrah for him!
The Albany is a lovely big spacious pub situated on the corner of a junction so there are lots of windows to people watch through. It was a really nice layout with a lots of comfy sofas, chairs, stools, high tables, low tables…etc. It has a good intimate venue for seeing up and coming comedians at a good price. I would recommend this place for any occassion whether it be a big night with meal and show or just a quick drink. It is a good all-rounder.
Do you like a laugh with your pint? Then this is the place to come! Upstairs at the Albany is a lovely open bar area with plenty of space to enjoy a real ale or beer from the wide range on offer here with your friends. There are lots of comfy chairs, tables and sofas to settle into. This venue also serves pretty good pub grub if you want to make an evening of it. Downstairs is a theatre bar where you can see the best of up and coming British comedy - I’ve spent some of the most painful evenings of my life down here after my sides have split from too much laughing!
Well worth the visit!
The Albany is a pub opposite Great Portland Street tube, very near to Regent’s Park in London. Upstairs is a very relaxed pub with lots of soft seating and areas you can book. Downstairs is a 100-capacity venue which hosts comedy nights Mon-Thur, and club nights Fri-Sun including some great indie nights. A good selection of beers, including Brains SA recently added by the new Welsh manager, and fairly basic gastro pub food, notably a great burger!
I’ve never been to Albany for just a drink, I’ve only ever been to see a show in the basement downstairs.
Called ‘Lowdown at the Albany’ - cos it’s in a basement, geddit? It’s low down, because it’s beneath ground level. And it’s the lowdown, because they are cool, they know what the lowdown is. I believe lowdown is a word that means ‘what is currently considered hip’.
Anyway. It attracts quite a bunch of comedians who preview Edinburgh material and it’s the main home of Robin Ince’s Book Club and School for Gifted Children. So it’s a good place to see some (usually) slightly left field, intelligent jokes.
I think the space is actually not a great one and not especially conducive to a great comedy night, but it seems to be doing very well for itself despite my opinion.
The pub upstairs seems quite nice. Big wine list, food, trendy atmosphere…
This is a comfortable pub, with everything you would want in an all-rounder. The food is actually rather good, the range of drinks large and the service friendly. There are frequent performances from a range of (in my experience) fairly chilled out musicians. Sport is shown, chairs are comfortable. It's easy to lose track of time in here.
