Not it’s usual standard. Duck stater with Jasmine rice was cold with the duck over cooked. Other mushroom on toast stater cold.
Steak main was very good, along with all the sides. Overall not as good as it has been. No excuse for cold food which totally spoilt the experience

Staff were good about my allergies and checked that they weren’t in my food. Food was lovely and the outside heating made it not too hot. Albert’s took Covid 19 rules seriously which was greAt to see.

Second visit recently, first had a couple of hiccups for our anniversary but we thought we would give it a second go as it was dealt with well when they forgot our paid for champagne. This time round food was luke warm had to send back then my partner was left eating on his own until my food returned warmed up. My wine was served in a mucky glass which was sticky on the stem, that too had to be changed. The room was warm/hot until the air conditioning was readjust before we were due to leave. the service from our waiter was good though. Perhaps try somewhere else next time. :-(

Staff were amazing throughout the evening. We were given a quiet table, well away from other diners. Food was ok, nothing outstanding though. Garlic bread at Albert’s is really good as always. Two of us had fish and chips, fish was ‘watery’ batter ok. The halloumi burger was acceptable. We had a nice night though, thanks to the staff.

Mushroom starters Soggy bread and runny Luke warm sauce. Guests swapping tables To be nearer family fro other household and not changing table cloths or cutlery and glasses for new guests until brought to their attention. Chocolate desert to sloppy and bread and butter pudding fat too small for amount charged. Limited menu with first choice unavailable

We visit on a regular basis the last visit being Friday last week. As we visit quite often it is inevitable that we are served be various members of staff. On this occasion although polite we felt the the staff were quite indifferent. We will be visiting again on Saturday and live in hope that the staff quality equals the food . Thank you.

I was rather disappointed with the choices on the reduced price lunch menu. They seemed rather mundane as compared to previous occasions when I enjoyed the creativity of the dishes, which is why I bring friends. Our ambience would have been fine on the terrace but we had to move because a table had 4men all smoking and one never stopped smoking his cigar. The stench was awful. I suggest you have a designated smoking area outside... or, in these times, ban smoking on the premises..... smoke can carry covid

Food good. Frustrating that when we arrived 15 minutes early we were told our table wasn't ready. We were told to wait outside and order some drinks using the app. When I returned to the front desk 15 mins later I had to ask ig our table was ready. No member of staff came to get us. We were then taken to a table which had originally been free when we first arrived. Another group on the table next to us had been made for 25 minutes.

Responded 7 days ago

Hi Andrew, thank you for your feedback. This was clearly a misunderstanding from our front of house and they should, ideally have sat you down when you first arrived should your table have been free. Usually we move the table allocations around depending on how the day is and it is clear this is what happned, however, someone should have come to let you know your table was ready. I hope you will come back to see us again soon.

Great food, lovely ambiance, but service was a little slow and didn’t bring condiments after asking if we required any for fish and chips. Have been previously and service was great.

Hi Gaynor, thank you for your feedback. I can only apologise that you didn't recieve your condiments. It is evident that they must have forgotten your requests, and it is not usual. I hope this didn't change your experience too much and you will be back to see us again. :)
