Prince Albert, Battersea
The Prince Albert is one of the latest additions to the Geronimo portfolio and it's probably one of their best. Previously an under-performing and somewhat depressing local, this large pub has been given the Geronimo treatment and is considerably improved as a result. The Geronimo style might be a little formulaic to some, but it it does work. You get a very good range of drink - good ales on the hand pumps, Continental beers on tap and a good wine list, decent food, pleasant, spacious surroundings and good service. All the things you want in a pub, but are often difficult to find. It's an ideal place for the locals, across the road from Battersea park, it's just the spot for a refreshing pint on a hot summer's day, but for the rest of us, transport links are somewhat scarce around here, so it is a bit of a trek, but it has to be said it's worthwhile. Battersea isn't exactly short of pubs, but the revival of the Prince Albert, must surely pose a challenge to the incumbents.

Booked a table for the opening Autumn Internationals and was shown upstairs! 'don't think of it as a bad thing'. said the manager chap. How right he was! Despite gearing up for a hog road outside for the Battersea Park firework display later the staff could not have been more helpful, fetching pints of T.E.A and Doom Bar from downstairs while the small bar upstairs catered for the Aspall and lager drinkers assembled!

A big fan of The Phoenix over the river on Smith Street so delighted by this latest incarnation which did not disappoint when looking for venue to watch 2010 6 Nations campaign. Previously boycotted under previous ownership because of its non-sensical 'no-dogs' policy (right next to the park, for goodness sake - cr. The Windmill on Clapham Common/ The Sun & Frog and Forgetmeknot, Clapham Old Town!)
