Our Food & Drinks

Our menus contains a variety of styles from old classics to traditional fayre as well as some favourite dishes from around the world. These dishes are prepared each day with the best of ingredients by our very own chef. By using local produce we can purchase well and giving our customers meals at very affordable prices. Typically an average meal will cost in the region of:

  • Lunches range from £7-£10
  • Dinner for two during the week including a bottle of wine is around £35

Obviously if you add extra starters and sweets these prices can change. This is just a loose guide for you. To see our prices in full you can download each menu in PDF. We have an extensive cocktail list for those looking to kick off their night in style, enjoy a post-dinner treat or a night out with the girls. An Albany cocktail is the perfect accompaniment to any night out!

Relaxed and comfortable atmosphere

When we designed our bar and cafe/brasserie our aim was to create a space that was cosy yet spacious that had a good atmosphere and feel to it. We think we have managed to achieve that but actually it is our customers that create the atmosphere. We have cosy quiet tables for couples, larger table combinations for lunch with your friends, family or colleagues. For bigger families or groups who all want to sit together we have an area where we can set up a table for thirty. Now you don’t have many Bar and Café/Brasserie’s that can provide that facility to keep you all seated together. The beautiful exposed walls and the balustrades from the original windows of the building add to the unique dining experience at The Albany.


Breakfast, the meal to start your day. Fresh orange juice, Full English Breakfast, toast with butter or perhaps marmalade washed down with either a choice of one of our traditional teas or if you prefer a flavoured tea well we have that too. If coffee is your fix in the morning we can give a standard black or white and for the more adventurous we have a wide range of lattes, espressos and cappuccinos. Our breakfast menu should manage to get you energised for the day ahead. Our range of breakfast options cater for everyone including the healthy, the hungry and for those in a hurry.

Morning Coffee

As someone once rightly said ‘wake up and smell the coffee’. This is what adds to the atmosphere of a good Café/Brasserie. The smell of coffee, wafting through the air and filling your senses with ‘I need one of those for me’. Add in the smell of home made baking and peruse our variety of cakes and scones and you’ll begin to get the sense of why you are sitting relaxing in the Albany rather than sitting at work or home.


Sometimes it’s good to just get out and treat yourself to a proper lunchtime break. If you can get that time out especially with a friend or colleague you can try one of our lunchtime specials. Working lunches are a favourite with your work colleagues. Somedays we see as many as 20 people out on a lunch break from the office (Fridays are a great days for office lunches). So if you haven’t arranged it before maybe it’s time to say to your colleagues let’s make one of our days a lunch day at the Albany. Remember if you are a group of over 10 please try and pre-order your food. This helps us serve you quicker and makes for a less rushed experience for you.

Afternoon Tea

Relax later in the day with afternoon tea and scones or any other favourite indulgence (It’s been said that we make the best homemade scones!). It’s that quiet time before heading home where depending on your family, bedlam may be waiting. So take your chance of peace and quiet when you can and relax with a drink and a treat and listen to our great selection of music. We serve a range of the finest teas, so choice is not a problem. You will surely enjoy an afternoon tea at the Albany, even if you are just hiding from the family for half an hour. Afternoon Tea reservations should be made 24 hours in advance.


Our chefs prepare excellent quality food at affordable prices. So where else would you go for dinner in Inverclyde? All our food is made on the premises with the freshest ingredients and served in a modern and comfortable environment. The Albany
