About Albatross & Arnold
Stylish dining spot in Spinningfields
Albatross & Arnold serves small plates for sharing from lunchtime until late. You can find this stylish bar and lounge retreat on the first floor of The Leftbank Building on the banks of the river. This means that you can watch the hustle and bustle of Spinningfields while relaxing in pure luxury.
The lounge bar’s interior has been designed in loving detail, including a thirteen foot bar made of polished concrete, oak and brass; velvet furniture and a suspended light installation featuring over 1000 beautifully lit golf balls.
Food is complemented by a stellar wine list with twenty by-the-glass options, delicious cocktails and a range of exclusive whiskies as well as cognacs. Given the glitzy atmosphere, this would be an ideal destination for an intimate date or glamorous get-together with friends.
Small plates, big ideas
Albatross & Arnold specialises in sharing dishes inspired by the flavours of the British Isles, with carefully sourced seasonal game, meat, fish and vegetables.
The adventurous small plate menu can change, but expect to find treats such as the Lancashire blue cheese bon bons with walnut and candy stripe beetroot, the whisky-glazed pork belly with ten year old Laphroaig and red amaranth, or the pan-roasted cod loin with liquorice and squid ink.
Vegetarians can enjoy choices such as the grilled Scottish artichoke with tomato concasse. Small plates can come accompanied by sides, including the heritage tomato & feta salad, the pecorino croquettes and the roast potatoes with quail jus.
For dessert, expect indulgent choices like the selection of truffles made in-house daily with an ever-changing range of flavours. Creative cocktails include the Saffron & Hibiscus White Lady, the Salted Caramel Old Fashioned and the Cherry & Apricot Cosmopolitan.
