A few weeks ago we were out and about enjoying a lovely sunny day in London. However, a football match that we wanted to watch was about to start so we started searching for a pub that would have the game on. That’s how we discovered The Albion, near Blackfriars Bridge.
The bartender, a friendly Canadian, greeted us with a smile and a cold cider. The cider tasted good on a warm day. The game hadn’t started yet so we were able to find a table in front of a large TV screen.
I’m the type of person that’s always hungry and since we were going to be there for the entire match I decided to order some bangers and mash. The Better Half ordered some chicken wings and hummus. The food was decent and hit the spot.
Soon more people straggled in. By the end of the game, many people were standing to watch. It wasn’t overly crowded but I was glad that we arrived in time for a table.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the pub. It was just the right size to watch a game with a crowd. Not too big or small. And the staff was excellent. I would go back if the opportunity arises.
This weekend Liverpool plays Chelsea. This is a big match. Liverpool is ahead of Chelsea by five points and if Liverpool wins they have a decent shot of staying in first. Keep your fingers crossed for us, unless you’re Chelsea or Man City fans. I understand.
