The Albion Rooms began its life as the Albion Hotel, established in 1871. Ever since, the location has been a popular place to meet, relax, and dine.

The hotel's close proximity to the Rideau Canal, and the Carleton County Courthouse (now the Ottawa Art Gallery) made it a local favourite, attracting lawyers, students, townspeople, and travellers alike. It also brought in local farmers hoping to sell produce at the Byward Market close by.

It's within this historical framework that the present day Albion Rooms still operates.

Our philosophy at the Albion Rooms is to work with Ottawa's finest local craftsmen. We are committed to providing a platform for the very best this city has to offer, while supporting a vibrant and sustainable community of local producers. This commitment allows us to offer an exceptional farm to fork dining experience for our guests.

Our goal at the Albion Rooms is to provide you with the best of old-world hospitality. No matter your occasion, our passionate and knowledgeable staff will ensure your experience with us is one to remember. From craft Ontario beers and specially selected wines, to signature cocktails and dishes borrowing from traditional European and Canadian cuisine, our menu aims to please even the most discerning palate.

We want The Albion Rooms to be your home away from home, so stop by, relax, and experience the storied history of The Albion Rooms.
