Wonderful experience from the moment we walked through the door, service was excellent with no long wait for the courses, food was excellent bets fish & chips I have ever tasted though the mushy peas were a bit on the dry side but would really recommend Alberts Shed

We had a wonderful evening here. The menu was interesting, with lots of great sounding choices. Our Chateaubriand was amazing, so tasty! The pepper sauce was the best I've ever had. Our waiter was brilliant, he was knowledgeable about the food and venue, attentive but not irritating. It really was a great meal out. Thank you.

The food was exceptional made. Im not ashamed to say that I enjoyed my meal so much, that I ordered another main! The ambiance was lovely for our evening meal. Nice scenic view from our seats and it started snowing which made for a nice little added extra.

Never been here before but thought it was really nice. Amazing food. 1 starter, 2 mains & a bottle of wine £50 pretty standard for city centre! Which was good because it did have an expensive feel inside

We keep coming back here for a reason. Always lovely food and great service. The only thing stopping me giving it full marks on ambiance too is that when it's full, it's get a bit too noisy so you find yourself shouting across the table to talk to each other.

A group of six of us came on Saturday night to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had a great evening thank you. This was due to many factors but the service stands out . The staff are fantastic. Very friendly and efficient even though the restaurant was full. Everyone enjoyed the food and the cocktails were a hit especially the elderflower and the salted caramel. The bill was a bit less than I had expected. Always good!

We had a meal before going to a concert and were pleased to find that the service we received was well timed. The staff were friendly and attentive and we really enjoyed our time at the restaurant. I found the dessert menu was great! As a person who cannot eat chocolate due to allergies I had a number of options here when usually I am lucky to get 1 option! The cocktails were delicious too! Overall a great experience!
