We are open seven days a week and everyone is welcome, whether popping in for a glass of wine with a friend, a solo cup of tea or a full and hearty meal.
The day starts with an extensive breakfast and brunch menu and then progresses to a lunch and dinner menu combining café classics and modern British grill items. We also feature a great range of British oysters and shellfish. Throughout the day tea cakes and biscuits are available to eat in or takeaway. And, our bar specializes in quintessential British cocktails.
We also have wi-fi should you need to catch up on a few emails while you’re with us.

LOCATION & SETTING
We are literally next door to Tate Modern on the Southbank – the entrance to Albion is opposite the large taxi rank on Holland Street. The building is designed by Lord Rogers and the interiors are by Sir Terence Conran – a hard to beat combination. The dining room is light and airy with floor-to-ceiling glass walls allowing views of the landscaped gardens, and there is an active open kitchen. There are also tables available on our large heated terrace, many benefiting from views of Sir Christopher Wren’s St Paul’s Cathedral, Renzo Piano’s Shard and Sir George Gilbert Scott’s Bankside Power Station – now Tate Modern, with the nearly complete extension by Herzog & de Meuron.
