After 15 min standing at your bar waiting to get served with none of your bar staff letting me know they have even seen me which is very poor we then went to our table which had dirty table cloth that’s poor
After that we had the Sunday roast which was nice apart from the Yorkshire Puddings other people complained also.

It was busy and I think they may have overbooked the place. We had to wait 25 mins extra for our table then the food was slow to come out, as were drinks. I like alberts so I’m not saying it’s a bad restaurant as I’ve had better experiences there. The food was good but not great on this occasion

Usually everything about Alberts is good, but on this occasion it was quite poor. Waited 45 minutes until the food was served, in this time my choice was sat on the hot counter for just over 20 minutes. When it was served up to us my choice was barely warm, to which it was returned and another plate made up. Yes I did not have to pay for the first plate, but usually Albert's is bordering on excellent, but I feel that they were ran off their feet and missing customers out

Classic Sunday roast. Tender soft beef with a generous Yorkshire pudding and plenty of gravy. Maybe a little more beef would be nice, if I was being picky. But another lovely experience.

Our first visit after a friend’s recommendation. Impressed with the clean and spacious layout, with an excellent chilled ambience that was perfect for lunch, with indoor and outdoor seating options.
Food was of a good standard and value, complimented by a friendly and efficient service, despite it being reasonably busy. Definitely one to recommend (at least for lunch).

Too loud, we couldn’t hear ourselves thinking and we had to shout to communicate. I asked if the sound could be turned down a notch, and it was for a minute, but then the sound level was even worst.

The service was taking too long, we waited 20-30mins to get our first glass of water and our mocktails.

Also, the chair we were sitting on were dirty.

Alberts has a lot of potential and the was was pretty good to be honest, but the service and the noise made it a bad experience for us. We booked Alberts for a special occasion, it was my friend’s birthday, but we had to cut the experience short as the noise was too much and the only thing we could think about during dinner was to leave the restaurant ASAP just so our ears have a little rest from all the noise. That’s a shame. If we wanted to listen to music so loud we would have gone to a club, not Alberts.

Alberts is always a lovely setting.

Front of house very polite, helpful could not fault.

Both ordered the same of the current Lunch menu. Starters sizzling beef which came with a array of green peas and other green veg. Very nice flavours. Portion was a good size.

We ordered Albert's Battered Fish & chips. I changed my fat chips to thin chips. Came with Tartar Sauce. Again very nicely cooked, had flavour.

Desserts we had Eaton Mess and Peach Cobbler with raspberry & ice cream. Again very nice, good portions, flavours were good.

Highly recommend.

Overall good Service but all personnel let you down as no-one was wearing masks and the waiter lent over to serve. Could have given the food to us to pass round. I am disabled parked in spot but no-one at front desk to give reg to. Tried to give to waiter he said had to be front desk. Saw the guy on the front desk showing people to table asked could I give him reg (twice) never took it. No consequences but there could have been. Food, price, ambience as good as ever. Just little points

Could not rate Albert’s more highly. Fantastic value for money, attentive and genuinely welcoming servers. Food was delicious. Beautiful interior and not too noisy - lively but not too loud that you can’t hear the people you’re sat with. Fabulous - would recommend to anyone
