Fabulous food. Excellent and accommodation team of staff and a view of the river - couldn't ask for more.

With an outdoor dining area overlooking the banks of the River Thames, The Albany is a gastro pub nestled outside Thames Ditton, just a 3-minute drive from the majestic Hampton Court Palace. A cosy retreat with cushioned armchairs, log fireplaces, polished stone floors & subdued lighting to set the mood, this country-style pub serves a mix of modern British & Mediterranean dishes.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Albany menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest available ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Albany bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Albany in Surrey is just a 2-minute drive from Hampton Court and Thames Ditton Rail stations.

    Very pleasant evening. Good food and attentive staff made the alfresco atmosphere a real treat. A great way to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

    Booked a table for 8 the previous week.Table all ready and exactly where I'd asked with a view of the river. We all had the fixed price menu and food all arrived on time without any undue wait. Food beautifully presented nd all pleased wth their dish. A very helpful young waiter serving us but all staff helpful to us,a party of oldies! No pressure on us to hurry though thr restaurant was almost empty by the time we left.We're all quite experienced diners in various places but felt this was a very good dining experience.

    Service was poor. We have three children with us, one of them autistic so ordered their food as a priority. It was not treated as suc and Some of it never turned up. We had to keep getting up to get service.

    We started with Seared Scallops and Mackeral, very simple and tasty. Maybe coud have done with a little horseradish for the mackeral. I chose the chicken bacon and advocado salad, it was somewhat disappointing. The chicken was very dry and the mustard dressing almost unnoticed. I feel that there should have been a larger amount of salad especially for a main dish. My friend had the beetroot tart and said it was very good. Service was attentive without being in your face.
    The atmosphere was excellant and the views all added to the experience.

    Requested a table by the window which was waiting for us when we arrived
    Plenty of waiting staff
    Food was lovely had the 3 trio roast and then we had desserts outside
    It got a little chilly but they provided blankets. Sat and watched the world go by

    Great service, all the the staff are very friendly. The food is amazing. Would recommend this to anyone who is after a social, chilled, quality spot for lunch or dinner. Kassie and the gentleman Max they were especially great at attending to our needs and made the experience brilliant

    Wet Sunday in January for lunch; nice and warm inside with a table by the window. Service prompt, polite and attentive. Good range on the menu, breads, olives, pizzette; very good arancini and tempura squid; chicken salads and roast porks ample proportions. Somewhat strange to get Yorkshire pudding with roast pork. Spiralised onion, carrot, cucumber in the salads a bit tedious after initial novelty. Need to book at peak times - many family Sunday lunches have migrated away from home. £25 per head including drinks and gratuity.
    On-site parking very useful. View on the river opposite Hampton Court is nice on decent days - especially if it is warm enough to sit outside.

    The service was extraordinarily slow. An hour between ordering and starter! Food passable. This was a Boxing Day meal. I think they were overstretched. Lovely location. Waiter charming but unable to hurry up food.
