Enjoyed the buzz and atmosphere on a sunny and busy Saturday in this popular venue but because of the numbers of people service suffered. Only real complaint about the food was in relation to large Caesar salad - it was very poor both in contents and presentation with sparse blobs of thick sauce.

I brought my 2 daughters - in their 30's - for lunch as they both have a birthday in July. It was lovely to be able to sit outside in the sunshine and eat lovely food and chat. The service was really good - unhurried and unobtrusive, which is just right for us. The menu was varied, lots to choose from, and all our meals were good. Although it is a lovely restaurant it feels very comfortable and 'casual', but in the best possible way. The only thing missing from my perspective was the lack of fresh fruit on the dessert menu, but that is a personal thing.

1st time we have visited. Surprised to have got a table at such short notice ( 24hours). The duck satay was great.
It was Saturday evening and it was busy, but we never had to wait very long and the food was served quickly after ordering.
Would we go again ? Definitely.

Food was good but I thought the service was poor waitress knocked over the bottle of water into the middle of the table and just picked it up and walked away I thought she had gone to get a cloth to wipe it up but didn’t come back to do it I ended up doing it myself with serviettes. Constantly had to ask for drinks rather than someone coming to ask if we needed anything, and when I paid my bill which was over £300 I seen there was a 10% service charge added which I paid but when I pressed no to the tip on the card machine it was then snatched out of my hand !

Having booked a table and requested a table on the terrace (no guarantee was understood) the staff were not helpful in trying to see if anyone was about to leave-a table clearly were- so we were seated inside and even offered a table at the back (it was a sunny evening). We approached the people leaving ourselves and got a table outside. Poor customer reception/service, especially as we had booked.

Good food but not great service. Long wait for pre dinner drinks. They arrived with starters and the wine. Not informed of menu items which were no longer available. Very unfriendly staff who seemed to serve attitude rather than good service. Shame as the food itself is quite good. In such a competitive industry the complete dining experience needs to be better to ensure retuning customers.

Service was very poor waiting for extreme long periods for food, roast beef very dry and had to be sent back among other food. Food missing on plate etc and then had the nerve of charging for service. Wont be coming back. No disabled access as well for wheelchairs.

One of our dinners had the roast beef dinner . the beef was as tough as old boots . he asked me to taste it , giving me a pieces. i chowed and chowed and when I tried to swallow it choked on it .my friend had to get up and squeeze my chest to dislodge it . a most unplesent experience .At no time did the waiter ask if every thing was ok until he cleared the plates. When he asked then we told him what happened and he sent the manager over . the manager was a bit wimpy .
My dinner and my other friends was fine . we had a out side table which was very nice .
They knocked one coffee and beer off the bill .

We really enjoyed our visit to Alberts shed. We were a party of three and wanted a restaurant near Castlefield Bowl before a concert. You did not disappoint.
We all chose off the special menu £12.50 for a starter and a main course.
The food was delicious and good value for money.
We will definitely return and will recommend to family and friends.
Many thanks we enjoyed the experience.
