Precision helps the best of British get better

Ambitious restaurant/outlet uses Precision Refrigeration to guarantee quality

albion-clerkenwell-barBased in the newly redeveloped Turnmill Building, Albion Clerkenwell is the latest addition to the small group of food and drink destinations established by Prescott & Conran.

The largest Albion to date, it offers a range of dining options suitable for everything from breakfast to dinner. With a menu that combines classic recipes with a modern sensibility, it also includes a Grill Room, a Pie Room and an Oyster Bar, all spread over two floors. Alongside dining, Albion aims to be an everyday resource for its local community.  A grocery showcases the finest in British food, including charcuterie and a range of cheeses, while a bakery prepares fresh bread and pastries in-house. Ian Wood, Prescott & Conran executive chef, explains. “We make as much of what we sell here on site as we can, so we have a lot of quality ingredients we need to keep in top condition. Good refrigeration is very important to us.”
