Out and About: The Albannach

I know it’s Wednesday (I’ve just caught up with the fact we are now peaking the mid-week hump!), but I’m both reminiscing and thinking ahead to next week…beat the Monday blues with a LONDON BLUES at The Albannach!

Mondays, oh yes, they drag. But after a wine tasting of twenty South African wines with fantastic producers with The Wine Society Monday just gone, a friend and I headed for dinner at The Albannach on Trafalgar Square – part restaurant, part cocktail and whisky bar, part club/lounge. Listed in the Time Out 2012 Eating & Drinking Guide, this ultra central venue is great for food (beef wellington was fantastic!), has a wide range of whiskys and a deliciously tempting cocktail list. Taking a break from wine, we started with a patriotic aperitif….followed by a fantastic meal and bottle of Pinot Noir!
