I have eaten in Manchester twice a week for the last 3 years, and I have no doubt I have never had a better meal!! It is already booked for next week.

Have been here loads of times but sadly this time their was a party on the next table and the noise was terrible . We went for a nice quiet meal and ended up having to shout at each other. The service and food was amazing . Not been put off by this but it spoilt our date night.

The service was poor, we waited at the door for around 5-7 minutes to be waited for seated.

We were served by the waiter for drinks quite quickly but those drinks took around 20 minutes to arrive. We had to ask a couple of times where our drinks were. They were busy but not full. Not really sure what was going on.

The tarted were great, really nice.
The mains however, there were 6 of us. 2 of us found hairs in our meal.
We told the manager who apologised and said she would remove the meals from the bill, she said it was embarrassing for them and she would offer us a complementary dessert or drink. She didn’t come back to offer any such thing.

We paid and left. All in for a bite he at meal, not good. Wouldn’t return.

Love Albert's.. Consistently fine food and wine, reasonable price, great ambience, good service. My favourite dish is halloumi and chips. Friends and family that are quite particular, enjoy it here too.

Very pleased with this venue, we were a 60+ yrs reunion group of 8 people, and although it was very much a younger persons place, the noise level was fine, the service and food was v good indeed.

Food portions are getting smaller each visit and don't match the cost.
Plus point is they now offering Guinness.

Thank you for your review Gary I'd really like to know what dishes from the menu you ordered to look into why you think that the portions are reducing as they all should be the same spec size. Please could you also let me know what name your booking was under and what time your table was booked for and also your email address, Karen

We had booked a table and it was ready for us. Whilst the restaurant was very busy, the service was excellent. We chose from the set menu which had a wide choice to suit anyone and was great value. My wife is coeliac and requires a gluten free diet but this was no problem att all. Overall, it was a very good experience.

I was expecting a busy, noisy experience but was pleasantly surprised with a relaxing ambience and friendly service. The Sunday roast was excellent (pork) - beautifully seasoned and full of flavour.

It's in a very modern retro area of Manchester. The restaurants food quality was outstanding the presentation and taste were excellent cooked to a high quality. Wait time for the food wasn't bad either, waitor's were pleasant and courteous. Would definitely visit again ideal for a date and celebrations. I would say average costs are around £25 - 30 p/p if having two course with a drink. Highly recommended!

“Party menu” didn’t satisfy variety, only 5 starters and mains, on a whole the party felt a bit let down with the options. That being said it was very good food when it arrived. Table was ready on time but the drinks service was slow, overall above average but room for improvement on the minus points above. Would still recommend

We came to the restaurant for a farewell get together as work colleagues before redundancy! The food was lovely and the setting good. As we were all driving we could not take advantage of the offers on fizz and bubbly unfortunately! The food was very good with great choices on the lunchtime menu. The 2 courses for £12.50 lunch was really good value. The restaurant was very quiet while we were there so there was not much ambience but midweek lunchtimes are probably not the busiest time! A good place to meet and eat!

We went to Albert's Shed for a birthday lunch. The food was excellent and we all (8 people) enjoyed it. I would highly recommend the haddock rarebit. It was delicious! We also had 2 bottles of wine which was very reasonably priced. The staff were efficient and helpful too. We will definitely be going back soon.

Lovely meal took advantage of 2 courses for £12.95 . Only query was the weird paper on the plate to serve fish and steak . Just got wet and ended up in my mouth ! Not necessary. Apart from that lovely meal great service value for money

We've always had our quarterly 'get together' at Albert's Shed and the 2 course menu, probably for around 6 years now. Our lunch this time was a little disappointing, as the leek and potato soup was very salty, as was the rare rarebit and the type of fish appears to have changed on the fish and chips, along with the portion size.
The service was very good as usual and the atmosphere also.
We will still return as we love the location and that's the first 'blip' we've had.

Thank you for your review Jude, I'm really pleased to read that you have visited the shed for years that is fantastic, so I'm a little disappointed that you did not enjoy this visit. Would you possible mind contacting me with your email address so that I can request that the general manager Simon to look into your visit and dishes. If you could also include what name and time your booking was for that would be great, Karen

We arrived and our table was just outside the kitchen so I got knocked about 2 times by the waiters bringing foid out on a hurry. We waited a while for the starters and I ordered the prawns with bread my bread for dropped on the floor the waitress for a new piece our mains arrived some chips where cold and my broccoli was hard!! We did complain and didn't pay for my main course. We wont be going back it's over priced too. We have been on several occasions and this was the worst.

Love Albert Shed! Went for Early Bird Special which was great value for money. As always food was scrumptious. On sunny day great to sit outside. Love the seating area outside which is linked to Dukes 92.

Clean, bright, airy restaurant, decor makes it look stylish. Friendly and efficient staff, great menu choice. Loved the flavours in the crab and avocado starter, good portion size to. All the table enjoyed their food which varied from saddle of rabbit to tomahawk chop, it's a big chop make sure you have a good appetite! Would recommend for a special occasion or a night with friends. Can be noisy at weekends but midweek is fine if you like a quieter eating environment.
