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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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.,"

  • "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 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."

    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Whilst the food is quite good, it is expensive. The main problem with this restaurant is the music. It is extremely difficult to have a conversation over dinner as the music is indistinguishable, yet very loud. If you want to play with your phone whilst eating, this is the place for you. If you want a conversation whilst eating, go somewhere else!"
    dined on 11/07/2014

  • "Went along on Sunday for a brunch with our 16month old daughter. staff were excellent with her and the food was very good would highly recoomend this restaurant for a breakfast/brunch."
    dined on 29/06/2014
  • "I visited Albert's Shed on 28/06.14, and have to admit the place is stunning in both quality of food and service, the food was excellent, the service exceptional, nothing was too much trouble, they even made my wife feel special as it was her birthday, my only criticism (and its a personal thing) was that the background music was so load one could hear oneself think, I could have been dining on my own, as I simply could not join any group conversation on my table, I would respectfully suggest that a glazed screen is placed between the bar and restaurant, so that the visual interface can take place but have two sound levels on background for dining and foreground for drinking( the cocktails are brilliant) Overall the experience was worth it"
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Great food, lovely atmosphere, the venue easily catered for larger parties, although our drink was forgotten the service was overall very good."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "I have been to Alberts several times and have always been delighted with the experience! Great, prompt service from friendly staff who can't do enough for you, and of course absolutely delicious food! Everyone who comes to visit us gets taken to Alberts and they always want to go back again! Thanks for another lovely meal."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Having wanted to try Albert's Didsbury for a while, I finally booked for a Friday night. 9.30pm. We had to wait around 5 minutes for our table so seated around 9.35, which was no problem. We were given a tab card to use at the bar which was great. Service was outstanding in my opinion, I think it's the service that makes a place and Albert's have got it right! Food was fab! Very promptly brought out to us, each course. Would definitely go back and recommend!"
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "Albert's shed in Didsbury. I went here for a first date, the surroundings are very pleasant and smart. The noise level was quite loud (Thursday) but also bearable and we could hear one another....The food was tasty, hot and proudly served ...we were served olives and bread as our food was taking long. Overall Alberts is one of my favourite restaurant's in Manchester."
    dined on 26/06/2014
  • "I actually booked this restaurant, thinking it was somewhere else......well it was a happy mistake as we had a great time, great food and outstanding service. Thanks Tom!"
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "Service we received was excellent, the food was very tasty and even though the restaurant was so busy we got the food in a reasonable time and we weren't rushed. We will definitely be back!"
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "The food and service here is very good. We went on a Friday night and you could barely hear yourself think it was that busy and everyone seems to shout to get themselves heard! I wouldn't go for a romantic meal on a Friday or Saturday night if you wanted to hear what each other say!"
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "Food was very nice but bit expensive however love that you can sit outside & eat"
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Been to Alberts a number of times and it never fails to impress. Food was lovely, service was great. Have recommended Alberts to people in the past who have loved it also and I will always continue to do so as it's a fantastic place to have on your doorstep."
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "I am a regular at Albert's but on the basis of the last 2 visits I will be trying one of the independent restaurant s in west didsbury next time. You have dropped my favourite dish - seared tuna - and replaced it with an odd sounding pastry wrapped tuna sashimi. No problem this happens and there was a good list of specials so I chose roasted cod with broad beans. This was an I'll conceived and poorly executed dish I'm afraid. The cod was dry, the sauce watery, the broad beans (British broad beans in season are a delight) well where were they? And probably worse of all nobody asked me if I enjoyed the food. Maybe that was just as well. Alberts gels like a place to extract money from the diner you not a celebration of food and good times"
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "Alberts is a great place to dine great staff wonderful food good value for money"
    dined on 16/06/2014
  • "We visited in Sunday 15th June for Father's Day. I originally booked for 7 people but increased this to 10. Despite the restaurant being fully booked, the manager still accommodated us which I was very grateful for. Our waiter was professional, warm, friendly and efficient and we were served at a good pace-not too rushed. Food was delicious and set menu is such good value for a lovely restaurant. We had 3 children-9, 6 and 6 months and they were made to feel very welcome. We really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend."
    dined on 15/06/2014
  • "I went for a roast on Father's day with my husband and daughter and the service and food were both outstanding. Kids menu was great and we even got our puddings for free because they took too long to arrive. And we hadn't even complained about the delay! We'll definitely be returning."
