Booked online which was quick and easy and got a reminder confirmation email as well.
We went for my boyfriend's birthday and a celebration for me too as I had run the Manchester Marathon that morning.
The food was amazing, and the wine was delicious. Our waitress was lovely and very friendly. At the end of our meal she brought out 2 glasses of prosecco and a birthday Brownie with a candle in it for my boyfriend. This was such a lovely touch.
Would highly recommend as the good was superb and I was stuffed (but in a good way!)

We were impressed by the variety of dishes on the menu (including vegetarian choices, where there is often only one option) and by the standard of cooking. The service was a bit erratic, but it was a busy time. A very enjoyable meal overall.

Very enjoyable afternoon pre theatre meal. I brought my parents for their first visit to Alberts and they were very impressed and agreed they would be back again soon. My parents travel around the world cruising and sample some very exquisite cuisine and they found the food and presentation at Alberts a very high standard.
Hope to see you soon

Great service, large portions for the Sunday roast and catered well to my boyfriend who doesn’t eat mash or cauliflower (popped a couple of extra roasties instead). I have been to at least 10 different Sunday roasts in the city centre and this one is definitely one of the best. Would recommend again.

Five of us dined here for Sunday lunch and once again there was no disappointment
The service atmosphere and food was very good
You can’t complain at the value for money as it really is well placed
But what makes this place great is the staff and the atmosphere also
There is always a good mix of people and if you like people watching it’s great

They asked on booking if it was a special occasion don’t know why because it wasn’t mentioned when we arrived service and food excellent even though we were not offered the drinks menu only the food/wine menu yet other tables were.
We had a table near the bar felt a bit uncomfortable people leaning on the divide when we were sat on the other side of it,even though this seems a negative feed back we did enjoy the meal the food was excellent

Very organised, table was ready for us. Staff were polite and attentive. Choice of food is varied.
I had the short beef rib, meat fell off the bone, which was excellent. We had the garlic bread starter for one and it was enough to share for both of us. Main portions aren't huge but enough to satisfy.

We have been to Albert Shed a few times you get a good service, lovely food and buzzing atmosphere. However when we went on Good Friday my husband ordered a fish option and pushed the boat out by ordering Prawn & Lobster Risotto having tried haddock risotto in the past which was really tasty. I'm sorry to say that the prawn & lobster didn't have much taste very disappointing. It was very busy on the day we visited we had a little wait for our food but only to be expected. I would give it a try and see for yourself.

Our table wasn’t ready so we was sent next door to dukes. The table was a small round one which was not really big enough for 7 people. The waitress was serving other tables so we had to leave our table and go to head waiter to ask for drinks. The food was nice but the service could have been better.
