A word from Albert's Didsbury
Albert’s restaurant and bar is the eagerly awaited new addition to the dining scene in West Didsbury. The new restaurant is the second Albert’s opening, and is a sister restaurant to Albert’s Shed in Castlefield, in Manchester city centre.

The new space, which has been created from the old Barleycorn pub site on Barlow Moor Road in Didsbury, aims to provide South Manchester with a slick, modern space with dining for 160 guests inside and will also feature a fabulous outside dining terrace for 60 – perfect for alfresco dining this summer.

The menu is modern British with an eclectic mix of Albert’s favourites and dishes from around the globe, all using only fresh local ingredients. The restaurant will be open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, and, in a first for Albert’s, will be offering a full brunch menu on Saturdays and Sundays.

Diner Reviews
  • "Visited Alberts for the first time for lunch, after hearing great reports about the place. Food is beautifully presented and tastes pretty prefect - no complaints at all, great menu choices and a separate gluten free menu too. Worth a note is that the chef will adapt menu to suit (ie I am dairy allergic) Atmosphere is very nice indeed, friendly staff, modern interior with a calm feel and a lovely outside seating area to either just drink or to eat too. Kind of place where you can make it as special as you like. Only teeny criticism - which we all agreed on - was that we were asked far too often if we wanted more drinks..."

  • "Went here on a Monday night for the other halfs 30th. Was really busy but atmosphere was great. Didn't have to wait too long for food and it tasted great, was reasonably priced too. Would definitely come again perhaps try the breakfast."

  • "I went for a Sunday lunch to celebrate my birthday with my wife, sister and brother in law. As soon as the staff knew it was my birthday we were given a bottle of Prosecco. The staff were attentive and friendly, taking orders in a timely manner but leaving us time to ponder when necessary. Two of the party had Sunday roasts and were very pleased with the quantity and quality of food. My sister had a steak which she thoroughly enjoyed - no mean feat given how fussy she can be. I had the rump of lamb and loved every mouthful. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable occassion, helped along by top quality food served by friendly and helpful staff. Thanks to everyone at Albert's for helping me celebrate. We'll be back soon!"

  • "We have been going to Alberts Didsbury since it opened. However Sunday was a big let down. We had booked knowing it would be busy but the service was very poor. No one came to take our drinks order for 15 minutes and then only after reminders.My 3 fellow diners were then served their drinks but as I had only ordered water I waited 30 minutes. The manager said the drinks would be taken off the bill which was no big deal as the other 3 were all on soft drinks. The slow service continued throughout the meal. We decided not to have dessert. When the bill came we noticed the drinks were charged! We decided not to argue having had enough."

  • "We needed to book an extra cover just prior to getting to Alberts making a total of eight. They placed us on a table that could at best accommodate seven but after a word with with the front of house, we were placed at table which was far more comfortable. Most meals were good although I thought the price for a 7oz fillet steak was pricey. Service at table was very good and attentive. My party all enjoyed themselves and overall the atmosphere made us want to return.."

  • "You can't sit at your table until it's been set. It's a company policy apparently."

    dined on 07/08/2014
  • "Lunched with two good friends. Arrived early and the place steadily got busier. Lots of different people and some children. Brilliant and reasonable menu very imaginative. Really enjoyed the asparagus with walnuts and blue cheese crumbles, fish of the day and cookie bits. Perfect portions and really good value. Would and have recommended we eat here regularly as it is great and equidistant for us all. Good drinks menu but driving so had soft drinks. Well done Alberts"

    dined on 04/08/2014
  • "From walking in the restaurant the service we received was second to none. Our waiter was excellent, made sure our wine was topped off and was around if we needed anything. From ordering our food to arriving was not very long at all and the food was delicious - did not want it to end. After our meal we went into the bar area and drank cocktails and the atmosphere was great - not too busy, just right. The staff were excellent in the bar area too, and again nothing was too much trouble."
    dined on 02/08/2014

  • "Could I choose between the venison loin stuffed with blue cheese and the sashimi Tuna? My head won and the Tuna was superb. A very unusual dish for me and it delivered on tast and texture A great venuw thats packed on a Tuesday night. Clearly its a choice for the monied people of Didsbury"
    dined on 29/07/2014
  • "I took my parents for a 'treat' for helping me with my two year old. We waited over 30 mins for our starter, to be fair when it came they were all nice. Another wait again for main, i complained about the pizza I ordered as it didn't taste very nice. They offered me a free desert which was good of them. They bought the bill and it was all wrong. Overall a disappointing visit"
    dined on 28/07/2014
  • "We booked a table for two for my partner's birthday after hearing good reviews from friends and it did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in we were shown the best of attention by the waiter/waitresses. We went on a Friday so we ordered the half price champagne which was lovely alongside our amazing two course meals. Could not recommend this restaurant enough!"
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "I usually love alberts. We had a lovely evening there on Friday however I was disappointed with the lack of attention to detail in the food preparation. Our tuna salad qcontained over cooked tuna, a hard poached egg and gritty salad. General manager was lovely and very apologetic and didn't charge for the spoiled main courses. Staff were excellent as usual and were happy to light the candles and serve a birthday cake. Lovely evening but let down by the food."
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "Second visit to Albert's this month. The cheffing was reliably excellent and the service very good. The set lunch menu (with a very varied selection) and "champagne Fridays" make for exceptionally good value if one goes for lunch that day. Well worth a visit. The only down sides are a very hard, and so noisy, interior (especially if there are kids / parties) and [if you are driving] a tiny car park."
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "The food at Albert's was very good. The fish and it was perfectly done. The starter was the smoked duck breast and I found it just smoky enough and tender. The food is cannot be beaten here. The service was slower than expected, the waiter took a long time coming to the table, getting the order and presenting the check. It was busy, but a good waiter will read the customer. The food was wonderful and deserved the price tag. The length of time for the whole meal took (1.5 hours). I asked about an outside table on the patio and was told it would be a 40 minute wait. However, I could not make a reservation 40 minutes earlier and wait?? Not sure the logic to the whole process, there must be a better way to deal with this issue."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "Have been to Alberts on quite a few occasions and have enjoyed the evening , on this occasion it was the opposite experience. The waiters at the restaurant smashed plates and glasses around us for fun it seemed as plates and glasses continuously was falling, friends we brought to the restaurant thought it was a Greek plate smashing night. All we wanted was a quiet night to enjoy a meal. The food on this occasion wasn't of great quality either for the prices that the restaurant charges. Felt quiet disappointed on this occasion.,"

  • "We had a fantastic lunch before going to my son's graduation. It was a perfect start to a wonderful day"
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "Went in a group of 4 lovely service great environment friendly and nice place to be either inside or outside. Starters were small portions which was the only downfall to a great lunch."

  • "first timers my wife and i called in for a quick luch. the service and overall ambience was first class, we cannot wait to return. thanks to all for a delightful visit."
    dined on 20/07/2014
  • "Good service and pleasant outside dining area. Had full English but sausage a bit grissly and couldn't eat black pudding. Everything else was fine and coffee very tasty. We would go back but probably order something else off the menu."
    dined on 20/07/2014
  • "Great food, lively atmosphere, will visit again. Rabbit gnocchi with mushrooms & truffle oil was something special (might try to recreate that at home!!); we both ordered fillet steaks which arrived cooked to our taste (one medium rare, one 'blue' - difficult to achieve but perfectly executed). Reasonably priced wine to match. A great evening!"
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "This is always a good experience,from the cocktails to the coffee.Alberts have created a city -like restaurant in the suburbs, at less than city prices.We love coming here."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "Selected food from the lunch menu, combined with a a chicken and chilli pizza, was a good and tasty pizza, I was very surprised. Recommended."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "When arriving we stood for a good 5 mins around the desk while six members of staff (including two managers) didn't acknowledge we were there! Sat us eventually at a table outside the kitchen. Although interesting to watch my chair being knocked every other minute was not! We had to move our table forwards to rectify this. After 20 mins waitress took our order very apologetically. Even gave us a free glass of prosecco! They didn't have my starter so ordered another. Waitress noticed it wasn't right when arriving so called the manager over who then gave us it for free! If we didn't have Sarah as a waitress I think the night would of been ruined. She was excellent. Overall we left happy because of her. Alberts don't seem to cope when busy."

  • "Great food, atmosphere and value for money. Highly recommended!!"
