Royal Albert

Picture source: Stephen Harris

The Royal Albert was situated at 74 Albert Road. This pub closed in 2002 and became a private residence.  It was present by 1867 and was formerly owned by Watney’s Brewery.

This was run by my husband's parents, Doris and Charlie Butcher in the 1970s and 80s. We went to see it 5 years ago and it was boarded up. Now in the centre of fashionable docklands. When I first knew him and used to take a taxi to the pub from central London the driver would ask 'What on earth are you doing down there.' He used to follow the lorries laden with cattle bones on their way to the Knights Castile soap factory. Lots of London celebritiess used to use the pub which was opposite Tate and Lyle Thames wharf.
