Alberts Didsbury is one of my all time favourites and I always return with new friends. This occasion was for my sister's birthday, with all the females of our family celebrating with her. Excellent time had - thank you to all the staff @ Alberts.

I had heard great things about albert’s roast dinner on a Sunday so my friend and I booked a visit to the restaurant. It took a very long time for someone to come and take our drinks order then it also took a long time for both our main and dessert orders to be taken. Time for the food to arrive was good and my roast dinner was very nice although the vegetables were quite hard for my liking and the vegetable range is quite average.
Overall the food was good but service was poor from the restaurant.

Went for breakfast service was a bit slow. The food was good when it arrived lots of toast but not enough butter asked for more waited, then had to ask again still only enough for 2 slices of bread ! There were 6 of us !
Please put enough butter for the number of slices of toast.

Ordered coffee again after 10 minutes we had to ask again!
When we asked for the bill it arrived within 30 seconds.

Food and service was very good. Just a shame that we didn't get the booth that had been requested for my birthday (and no mention of the birthday). Requests do seem to be a problem at this restaurant (as in not getting passed on to the staff).

We always come Back as we like the food but it took ages for anyone to even notice we were there and then they usually make a special effort when it’s a birthday but they didn’t even wish me happy birthday the whole thing was abit rushed and other tables seem to get more special treatment unfortunately

The food at Albert’s is excellent and I would recommend the quality. The fish and chip portions however were enormous and even the hungry men in my group couldn’t finish it. This is a bit off putting.
Other issues - the tables are far too closely packed together and the noise level was unacceptable. We had to shout at each other to be heard.
Lunchtimes experience is far more conducive. Maybe because the place was very busy the service was slow and inattentive. Far better service experienced at Albert’s in Standish recently.
Staff were helpful in bagging up two enormous fish portions to take home for 2 appreciative dogs

This was a belated birthday lunch for me and I was confident that my friend and I would enjoy ourselves.. I love the atmosphere and the service was prompt and very friendly. I am a frequent visitor to Albert’s and I although I try other places I do come back here time and time again because of the lovely, tasty food and also the safety of knowing that I will enjoy myself and be looked after! Thank you for an enjoyable eating experience. I knew I could depend on you!

Generally enjoy our time there with the only exceptions being the portion sizes at times, they can be rather small and therefore not value for money.

Five of us dined at Albert's. The three meat and fish eaters were fine. The vegan options were limited and not great. Albert's needs to catch up - a bad vegan pizza, a tomato salad and a chickpea curry isn't really enough as the main course options.
I'd recommend to a friend who eats meat. To a vegetarian or vegan I'd say go somewhere else.

A delightful evening meal. Excellent service. Party of four and each course everyone’s meal arrived at the same time so we didn’t have to wait.
Food looked good and tasted even better. Excellent friendly and cheerful service. Meal served quickly. Table cleared when we were ready. Lovely atmosphere. Able to talk without thumping music. Very good for both relaxed and special occasions.

The decor is lovely and the food was delicious but there are a few simple things that would have made the experience much much better. Suggestions include if the staff had offered to take our coats (we had to ask), wine should be poured at the table, steak should be served with a steak knife, not all diners had a dinner fork (cutlery was set out wrong) and dessert should be served with a dessert spoon not a soup spoon. Simple things.

Visit often - especially on a Sunday. Sunday roasts are excellent. If you need to ask a waiting on person (who was not initially allocated to your table), one occasionally gets less of a friendly reception - you feel slightly like you are inconveniencing them when, for example, you just politely ask for more gravy...

I went for lunch menu. Have been going to Alberts for years. and always enjoy this menu, However haven't been since the refurb. What have you done the Steak Frites? I was shocked and surprised at the size of the steak - it was so small - I won't be returning

On this occasion the restaurant was busy but not over full with large parties. The noise level was acceptable and the newly refurbished decor contributed to an enjoyable ambiance.
The food was good with reasonable choices and well presented.
A much better experience the Worsley Restaurant

Gluten Free options were poorly cooked and were not presented very well. The fish and chips; fish good but mushy peas were a dark colour and the chips were soggy. The sirloin steak was of average quality. Staff were friendly enough. Music far too loud to have a table chat!

A disappointing experience. Despite booking in advance for three people we were shown to a table set for six and had to wait whist the surplus settings were cleared. Service was generally slow and not particularly attentive...we weren’t asked what we would like to drink until they came for our food order. When we’d finished our meals we had to wait quite a while for the plates to be cleared and then quite a while more to be asked if we wanted dessert. We’ve been here before and enjoyed it but this experience fell well short of the usual standards.
