Unlike many of the Shoreditch/Broadway Market pubs, The Albion is a proper boozer. It sells proper beer, it shows sport, it has a weekly quiz and it's not inhabited entirely by look-at-me media types. What a breath of fresh air!

So I got dragged here by some die-hard football fans a couple of weeks ago to watch 'The Game.' So I reluctantly settled in for an afternoon of football-watching and beer-drinking. And I had a pretty good time.
Sure, The Albion isn't the kind of place I'd usually frequent, but I loved it's down-to-earth, comfortable vibe and lack of pretension.more
