We’ve got your night out covered at The Albany!
A great place to meet with old friends, new friends, best friends, Uni friends and work friends. There’s something for everyone at The Albany. As well as our shows, we have great bands playing in our bar on Friday nights, introducing some of Inverclyde’s newest talent! Our brand new menu is available with some of your old favourite dishes and lots of new ones! We also have a fantastic movie themed cocktail menu (PDF).
Our Bar & Cafe/Brasserie is the perfect setting for you whether it is morning, lunchtime, afternoon or evening.
We serve food all day so no matter what time of day you feel like eating, our staff are waiting to serve you.
We go from being very busy to quiet to busy again each day. Many of our customers like to just drop in for a coffee or perhaps a breakfast in the morning. It’s casual and we have everyone from young mums, business people and retirees coming in to just take time out and relax and enjoy some peace and quiet moments with a pot of tea and a scone.
Light lunches, Afternoon Teas or Evening Meals. Soup and sandwiches, one, two or three courses – we serve what you want at the time of day you want. You can take your time and enjoy your experience at your pace. We’re not closing or rushing clients out mid afternoon.
When new visitors arrive it is easy to tell. We can hear the ooh’s and aah’s and wow! why didn’t we know about The Albany Bar and Cafe/Brasserie.
The Albany welcomes everyone any time of day. It’s the perfect spot to catch up with friends for a coffee, cake…or maybe even a cocktail. We have been called by our clients Greenock’s best kept secret but we don’t want to be a secret so please – spread the word.
The Albany Bar and Café/Brasserie is an oasis in the heart of Greenock. Come and visit us and give yourself and perhaps someone you love a well earned treat.
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.

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.
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 4 please try and pre-order your food. This helps us serve you quicker and makes for a less rushed experience for you.
Relax later in the day with afternoon tea and scones or any other favourite indulgence (It’s been said that we make the best home made 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 Twinings 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.
Pre Theatre Dinner
On evenings where we have shows on in our theatre we offer Pre-Theatre dinner.
We have been building upon our success of providing pre theatre meals to many residents across Inverclyde and visitors from further afield. It’s the quality of our food. It’s the quality of our service, our chef, our surroundings and, of course ,our atmosphere.
Why not take advantage of our Pre-Theatre dinners. If you are coming to a show in our theatre we know you have to be on time, so we are ready and waiting to serve you (it also helps if you let us know in advance).
