We went with another couple for lunch. We had the special menu at £12.50 for two courses. We all had different meals I had the curry for the first time and really enjoyed it, fish and chips upto the usual standard. The waiter we has was excellent and couldn't do enough for us. We have booked again for next week and regularly eat here when visiting the City.

Delicious food. I always rate a place with a vegetarian pie on the menu. (Who even likes mushroom stroganoff?!) Portion sizes just right, so you can fit in a dessert. Our waiter was lovely too :-)

As always the food was excellent, set lunch very good value. Starters are always a bit on the small side. We love Albert’s but although not as noisy as the one in Didsbury still difficult to hear each other which makes everyone talk louder! Still a nice location by the canal and easy free parking.

Our waitress was wonderful - very attentive but not rushing us - (Sat October 27th 4pm /5pm ) plus good food which was well presented. When one of our group knocked a glass of wine onto my meal she rushed over with additional serviettes and immediately insisted on replacing my meal - excellent.

It was my first time here and I will definitely be returning. The overall experience was extremely positive, but there appeared to be a waiter-in-training who brought our mains; he disappeared before we could tell him that we hadn't ordered the side salad and the checkback was a bit rushed so again the salad remained on the table. Only a small issue as the food and drinks were lovely.

Lovely apart from a couple of things.
Too much salt. Both the starter mushrooms on toast and the roast beef were overly salty which was a shame. I also think you should consider another fresh vegetable to the roast lunch.
One of the waiters was very strange. Deadpan and did not utter a word. Small thing and not important but a bit odd.
Pity because otherwise it was lovely. I tend not to complain because I think it spoils the occasion and I was visiting my daughter who I don’t see very often.

we have no upsetting complaints, but the price was a touch "toppy", bearing in mind that we only had two courses. It will not stop us returning (if you will have us) ?
