Food was fantastic and the service was lovely. I was disappointed that the glasses in our table were not clean and out cutlery was embedded within broccoli. There were also errors on our bill which were rectified.
I would go again.

The starter was a little disappointing, just 5 prawns for £8.50, but the main meal of lamb was delicious, and good value. The wait or was very attentive and a pleasant.

On a very hot day, everything in the restaurant was cool and calm. It was busy but the staff took the time to explain the menu and recommendations. Exceptional food, the lobster and king prawn risotto was exquisite.
It’s been a while since we dined at Albert’s Shed but it will not be so long before we go again.

Nice place. Our server was very nice and attentive, but not to the point of annoyance. Food was quite nice, but could probably be better. But overall it was a good experience. I would eat here again.

Not expensive by any means. We have dined elsewhere and paid more but usually end up disappointed in one day it another, and wishing we had used the shed instead. Cannot fault this restaurant. Food is always perfect. Wine is s little pricy but not enough to out us off going. We tend to visit at least once every other month, for special occasions or a great Sunday lunch

We had a rare Friday afternoon off and were able to take advantage of the two course lunch menu. The meal was exceptionally tasty particularly for the price.
We had a Gavi wine which was equally delicious and we were treated very well by the waiters and waitresses . We would highly recommend.

Albert's Shed is in a lovely location and is a beautifully appointed building with indoor and outdoor seating. My party of two sat outdoors, where a glass roof and electric heater lamps kept us perfectly warm. Sitting outside it was very lively as facing a busy outdoor bar, which was entertaining. The service was very good throughout our meal: appetisers were quite nice but the best part was the starters (excellent halloumi and guacamole, and really nice scallops) and the mains (lovely monkfish and seabass fillet). All the food was beautifully cooked and presented. Really enjoyed it .

It was my dad’s birthday so thought I’d treat him to a nice lunch. Not sure if you were short staffed but one young girl was rushed off her feet.
We ordered a make your own pizza for our youngest member of the party. He made it up but we couldn’t find a member of staff to cook it. We had eaten our mains by the time it came back to the table and so he had sat there watching and nibbling from our plates which ended in him also not eating his own.
Also, I ordered some oysters to come with the starter but they didn’t arrive! They weren’t on the bill and so not damage done but would’ve liked them!

Another fantastic experience. Food was superb and staff were excellent. There was a slight delay to our desserts due to a problem in the kitchen. The manageress was proactive and came and told us, without us having to say anything and she apologised profusely. Then comp’d the desserts as well. Truly the sign of a top notch restaurant - dealing with minor problems before they become major!

This was my second visit to Albert Shed on Mothers Day we were not aware of the set 3 course menu this was a slight problem as we never eat 3 course when we go out. The food was very good the staff where great, they gave our deserts to our children (6 and 9) which a positive move. We enjoyed our visit.

Overall, it's a great location, and is a good restaurant, but the service is inconsistent, depending entirely on each individual in the team. All credit, however, to Hayley in Front of House, who was outstanding.

Great food and service really lovely waiter Jack. Exce manage too, cared for our every need. Shame the table next to us appeared to have drinking before hand and exceptionally loud and language totally inappropriate. Thankfully they left by the time we got served our mains, otherwise we couldn't hear ourselves

Fabulous place! Great service!!! Food really good! My only one criticism would be that the portion sizes are slightly too small! The chateau Briand at £25 each was a very small amount!!
But absolutely loved everything else! Venison was delicious!!!
Would definitely return!

I chose Traditional Fish and Chips from the menu. It was £14 and largely tasteless. It was served with chunky chips Tatare sauce and mushy peas.

The fish itself was very large but was not cooked properly. I had to dispatch all the batter as it contained a large amount of fluid and this left very little fish I would like to eat.

I am a bit of a fish and chip buff and this wouldnt get out of my bottom two. The other being a restaurant close to Niagara Falls.

Won’t go back.

Having said this my eat8ng companions had perfectly satisfactory meals and the waitress was lovely.
