Another great meal at Alberts, also to be able to actually place an order with a waiter rather than ordering via app at the table is really appreciated.

Normally the service is way faster than this Sunday.
By the time the breakfast arrived the coffee was cold and we had to re order more (a ploy??).

Have visited many times since the Albert first opened. Usually been very satisfied.
Saturday 12/6/21
Arrived on time
Asked to wait to be seated, left in the bar for 45mins without any offer of service
Transpired that we had not been booked in as 'arrived'
Having sat down at table again forgotten.
Once staff assigned to table the service from the table staff was very good.
There was an overall impression of disorganisation.

Loud music(DJ inside ) so you couldn’t hear people talk. Waited 55 minutes to get the our first drink.
Service was slow and poor but the food was good. Had to chase drinks order several times. When we wanted to leave . We could find a waiter so We had to approach the desk 3 times to get the bill . When asked why the service was poor we were told it’s a new team.

First time at Alberts and the food didn’t disappoint. We had starters, mains and desert and all were really good. However the bar service was horrendous. We had finished our starters before our first drinks even arrived which was a really shame. The staff could have been at bit more attentive too. We arrived and stood by the hostess desk for at least 10 mins before anyone acknowledged us being there. I’d like to visit again and hopefully the drinks fiasco was a one off!

Drinks service was very slow with our first order taking 25 minutes to arrive at the table. This then threw out the timing as our meals arrived a minute after the drinks.
After visiting this restaurant dozens of times in the past I can only think that due to the pandemic they lost their quality chef/team/waiting staff as everything yesterday seemed below par in comparison.

Fantastic food, service & atmosphere for my sons 21st meal. Staff couldn’t have been more attentive. Particularly lovely the way my 78 year old mum was looked after. First time she’s been out for months and it really perked her up.

Really enjoyable date night at Alberts. We arrived early but we were still able to be seated straight away. The food was delicious and well presented, our waiter was friendly and attentive, lovely atmosphere, staff were wearing masks and regularly sanitising hands.

Had a lovely time. We booked an outside table which wasn’t available when we first arrived but we were able to sit by the bar and order drinks while we waited.
The table was nice and clean and we felt safe being far enough away from other diners with screens between us.
The food was amazing as always. It’s a little pricey but the quality is always so good so it’s worth it.

Table for 4. Two people ordered steaks, they were full of grizzle and fat, we couldn’t eat. They took them off the bill saying due to covid they were having problems with suppliers. The steaks should not have been served. Will not be returning as it was embarrassing as we had guests with us.

Food and wine really lovely. Service at table was very good. However my reason for 3 stars for service was that when booking, we had specified we wanted an outside table as secluded as possible as I am extremely clinically vulnerable and have just come out of shielding. Firstly, the person greeting us insisted on us coming into the restaurant to "check in" even though it wasn't really apparent why, they just took our name, clicked on the computer screen and reminded us to register on the track and trace app, which we had already done. We were then shown to a table right outside the restaurant door (about a metre away), that anyone going in/out of the restaurant would be passing close by to. After explaining that this option wasn't suitable we were then eventually shown to a booth which felt very safe and clean.

We enjoyed our meal and drinks and the app for ordering and paying worked well. The chips particularly were really good and piping hot. The halloumi salad was delicious with a great mix of ingredients. Being hot and sunny outside it felt like we were on holiday!

The downside of being outside was that shortly after we sat down, three people sat on the table next to us and started smoking, luckily they didn't stay long so it didn't interfere with the enjoyment of our meal at all.
