We’re dedicating the whole month of December to one of France’s most glorious and gutsy wine producing regions: Côtes du Rhône.
For the love of Syrah, Rob and team have spent literally weeks tasting everything from that King of Appelations to come up with a top- class selection of 8 reds and whites joining our by-the-glass menu.
Come on in any time from 1st to 23rd December to take a walk with us down the valley, meander through the Rhône villages and clamber up the hills. From the elegant, silky and deep mulberry mellowness of Boutinot’s Les Coteaux Séguret to the citrusy pure stone fruit aromas of Laudun’s Domaine des Maravilhas ‘Maestral’, our new wine flights showcase the everyday sophistication and delicious variety of the Rhône region.

The clocks have gone back, and it’s officially the start of Winter, so in the spirit of perfect timing, we’re embracing the chill in the air with a whole new Winter Menu from 1 November in our upstairs Restaurant.
From our destinational French onion soup with Vacherin crouton to Beetroot Tatin, Mediterranean fish stew with Crab Rouille, or succulent slow-cooked Duck Leg with cassoulet beans, Albertine’s new menu will warm both body and soul with the best seasonal ingredients. For afters, dare to resist Rob’s Chestnut semifreddo with honeycomb, or Allegra’s Clementine treacle tart, served warm with a dollop of fresh cream – almost too good to be legal!
Take a look at the Winter Menu here.
Christmas parties? Team Drinks?
Albertine in ’17 has a floor for all your Seasonal needs!
As of earlier this year, Albertine now has not only its legendary ground floor Wine Bar, but also a 25-cover Restaurant on the first floor and a Private Party Room on the top floor.
All three floors are available to book for Christmas parties, with the Private Party Room able to host drinks dos for up to 35 or sit-downs for 8-16 people.
Allegra & Rob have written suitably festive, fun, booze-laced menus for everything from canapés/nibbles to 4-course sit-downs and are looking forward to cooking up a storm in their first season at the helm.
Just ping an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Albertine’s wine list is an eclectic, thorough romp around the world, showing off the best grapes, producers and techniques on the planet.
Of our 150-bottle list, some come from legendary producers and others are emerging talents of the wine-making world. We draw mostly from individuals with small vineyards who really care about their wines, vines and environment. From Major League Big Hitters to great value session wines we’ve everything in our cellars from world exclusives to everyday drinking…as Kingsley Amis would say.
We have a wine for every penchant and pocket, so why not pick up a bottle/case after a visit or pop in as you pass by to get stuck into in the comfort of your own home through our handy off license, thus taking advantage of superb wines at affordable prices.
Albertine’s bar is nothing less than a local landmark: started in 1978 by Sarah McEvedy (current co-owner Allegra McEvedy’s mum), the cool, cosy pew-lined room provides a much needed restorative haven from the mayhem of Shepherd’s Bush.
Use it how you will: pop in for a quick glass and plate of cheese or charcuterie or settle in with the expansive, contemporary yet classic wine list for a few hours.
As standard we run 20+ wines by the glass and because of weekly specials as well as our rolling calendar of promos and events, plus the seasonally changing list there’s always something to learn at Albertine for folks interested in expanding their wine knowledge.
Food-wise the bar menu ranges from snacks to main meals via a range of mid-sized starters and sharers. Our aim is to keep it contemporary whilst giving a proper nod to Albertine’s 70s Francophile heritage.
As always there’s also a cracking choice of European cheeses on the blackboard…now with the addition of puds too!
Our first floor restaurant is a relaxed, airy room providing the perfect contrast to the busy bar downstairs. Here Head Chef Rob gets to spread his culinary wings across the mostly pan-European menu in a room designed for conversation and bonhomie.
In the restaurant reservations can be made from Tuesday to Saturday for tables of up to 8 people, or you can take the whole room for your Christmas Party!Book Now
