The Albannach is a Scottish restaurant and bar, located in a fine area of central London. It is close to a number of tourist, commercial and cultural attractions, making this a popular choice with foreign tourists wishing to enjoy a true taste of Scotland, while firmly entrenched in England's capital.
The restaurant is located on a raised mezzanine overlooking the sumptuous lounge bar below, a position that lends itself to an inviting ambience. The interiors are impressively stylish and art nouveau, evoking memories of the Glasgow School of Art, especially with its dazzlingly beautiful balustrade.
The Albannach is open throughout the day for lunch and dinner, and specialises in traditional Scottish meals that are freshly prepared and expertly cooked by a well-trained team of kitchen staff. The haggis is, as you would expect, a firm favourite, whilst a multitude of other Scottish meals, sides, starters and desserts delight palates from all over the world.
The Albannach restaurant is ideal for private functions, romantic evening meals, or, an impromptu sit down gathering. Remember to get there early for lunch as it becomes exceptionally busy, drawing exhausted shoppers and sightseers into its cosy, sleek and magnificently stylish interiors.
Something else which the Albannach prides itself on is its vast selection of whiskeys. Uisge beatha, or 'water of life', to coin the Anglicisation from the Scottish Gaelic. Their selection of the finest single malts from all over Scotland - as well as from across the world, Japan included - is virtually unrivaled.
So, while you can let their whiskey experts show you the way, here's a tip-top top tip for all budding connoisseurs: if the whiskey makes yours eyes water and has you spluttering, have your tumbler rinsed out with water and refilled with malt. The sharpness will have softened leaving a smooth, satisfying result.
