The Royal Albert

Given the hops hanging over the door, it would be more than a minor disappointment if The Royal Albert had rubbish beer. Fortunately, it doesn't: plenty of hand pumps (dispensing everything from traditional bitters to craft-brewed modern classics), interesting keg beers (Dark Star Revelation, a couple from Camden Town) and bottles from near (London Fields) and far (Odell). Probably the best pub in New Cross (unless you think its in Deptford) – and the grub’s pretty decent, too.
