The new Albion Café in Clerkenwell, London celebrates British produce, design and furniture

Posted on July 1, 2016 by Annalisa

Located on the iconic Turnmill site in the heart of the Clerkenwell design district, the new Albion restaurant, (the largest to date), is a celebration of Britain and the local area in every sense – from the artisan produce on the shelves and seasonal ingredients in the kitchen to the design of the space itself, down to the smallest detail.

Open from breakfast though brunch and lunch to supper, the new site also incorporates takeaway foods, hot drinks and juice bar, a well stocked bakery, a craft beer and wine shop, an oyster bar, a cheese and charcuterie corner, a cocktail bar and a pie room.

Like all Albions, Sir Terence Conran has overseen the design with Isabelle Chatel de Brancion from Spin Architecture and Peter Prescott selecting a number of classic and more modern British designers and manufacturers to work with, Multiple Anglepoise® Original 1227™ Pendant, Desk and Wall Mounted Lights dominate the entire ground floor space, complemented by furniture from Ercol, Benchmark and Bethan Gray.

Albion Founder, Peter Prescott comments:

“Clerkenwell is simply the perfect fit for our newest, and biggest, Albion yet. It’s such an interesting and vibrant area with so much going on, especially from a design perspective, and a rich and long history of craftsmanship and creation. Albion Clerkenwell has been created for the local community and neighbourhood so we hope our food, drink and overall ethos will be well received.”
