There's still no real ale here, and no sign of any food when I dropped at Wednesday lunchtime.

This is a simple bare-boarded pub. There's a bit of exposed brickwork about the place, and had a bit of the feel of an Irish pub about it, although there's no Gaelic or other pseudo Irish paraphernalia that I saw. Seating is mainly banquettes with normal tables, and I did see a large barrel doing duty as a tall table with its attendant tall stools. There are shelves above the bar counter and at the tops of the walls bearing jugs and the like. There was a TV on showing the racing, and this seemed to be the focus of interest in the pub.

This pubs OK without being anything special. A real ale would be a dramatic improvement. Although it was comfortable and friendly enough, I doubt whether I'll visit again.

The Albert is situated at the end or start of the roman road shopping area,this road once had lots of pubs,all now closed including a Spoons,the pub looks a bit different to most pubs in this area of East London
Once inside there was an L shaped room with the bar facing,the seating was mainly normal tables and chairs,but there was a bench seat to the left,there was a darts board to the right,plus two TVs one to the rear left the other to the far right.
There were no real ales on the bar,i had a drink of John Smiths smooth crap which it was,the other keg bitter was Flowers bitter.
The pub was quite busy with locals,who seemed a bit rough and ready.
I was happy enough drinking in this pub,just a shame there were no real ales on here.
