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
  • "We really enjoyed our meals at Albert's. The food was the best we've had in a long time, my steak was cooked perfectly as was my wife's chicken and the flavour of the sauces was excellent. The service was also really good, the timings were all just right in terms of not waiting but not being rushed, and the waiter was also extremely helpful with my wife's request for a garlic-free sauce! All in all we couldn't fault it and will certainly be back!"

  • "High heels on staff not good. She was finding it hard to walk us to our table. Table staff couldn't comprehend table service. Slow and sluggish didn't really care if we had a drink or not. We were nearly going to ring and ask for table service"

  • "We went to Alberts to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary and had a lovely meal, the waiter was very attentive and the Proseco devine. Thank you"

  • "I went for lunch with my father, stepmother, brother, his girfriend and my 12 year old daughter and I can honestly say it was wonderful from start to finish. The service was fantastic and the amazingly good value lunch was lovely. The only slight complant is that even at a not particlarly busy lunchtime it is really noisy. The music is totally unnecessary and I couldn't actually hear anything said across the table. Apart from that minor detail we all loved it. Many thanks - we will be back."

  • "Been going to Alberts in Didsbury for a number of years now and the food is always nice the service is very good also but I can't understand why they have started playing music this is a restaurant not a club people want conversation and with the place being busy with lots of diners it's just make it difficult to talk over the noise the last thing I want to do is shout to be heard please management turn off the music !!!"

  • "The food was nice but my hake portion was very small and it was only just warm when it arrived as was my husbands roast dinner. It was a very busy Sunday early evening. The child's portions were brilliant however and the pizza was lovely. The table was not sturdy at all and we had to move tables as one nearly toppled over! Service was ok, the lady was nice and friendly but we did have to wait and ask for a few things"

  • "I return time and time again to Alberts as this place never fails to provide us with Good Service and Excellent Food. A touch of class with a relaxed atmosphere. We just love the place and plenty on the menu to tempt anyone's tastebuds. Food is always of a high standard, no complaints."
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "Returned to Alberts as we had such a lovely time previously, we were not disappointed Food was great, atmosphere is lovely and although it was very busy we didn't feel crowded or ignored at all The only constructive feedback was the fact a 10% service charge was added and as there was only 6 if us this thought this was a little cheeky, especially as we know through someone who used to work there that this doesn't get given to the waiter/ress directly - we asked for it to get removed and we gave to the waiter personally. Also, there is half price champagne on offer but not on Prosecco which we prefer! :)"

  • "We have eaten in Alberts before on Sundays for family meals and I'm always impressed with the food and service. The value is good and we return approx 6 times a year, we choose not to go too often as this could spool the view we have. My wife and I choose to go there on a Friday night for our weeding Ann, as we dont get out often as a couple we wanted to pick a place we knew wouldn't dissapoint. And it didn't. however I did say on the booking it was our wedding an and that a good table would be great, Once we arrived there was no mention of or wedding Ann and felt that the service was not as good as on the Sunday."

  • "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."

    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "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.."

  • "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"
