A pub with a few surprises up its sleeve
The Royal Albert Hotel, located in Surry Hills, is not much to look at from the outside. Even when you first walk into the bar area, it looks a little small, but it really is a great find for food and drinks.
Traditionalists will appreciate the original, classic Aussie pub decor. The staff were attentive and the atmosphere relaxed.
They have two main areas for seating - the room next to the bar which is dimly lit and has booths, and the dumpling bar area which is set up like a beer garden but is actually an enclosed area, so you don't have to worry about the weather.
The chips were super tasty and the serving of poutine brought back memories of travels. The beef burger was a satisfying classic style while the mushroom burger, which sported huge fungi specimens, was spicy and very tasty.
The drinks menu was extensive with a few surprises such as the lemon meringue cream soda!
