I spent my birthday with my family at alberts shed. We had a table of 6. Everything was lovely, there was a nice atmosphere and the music was quiet in the background. The only thing that the table thought could be different. 3 of them ordered the sea bass and they all said you don’t get enough fish with it being a small piece for the amount it costs. But other than that, thank you for everything it was absolutely spot on

Great location, professional staff, good food and good value.
Very helpful staff in regards to our seating and then kind understanding re the no-show of our family member who uses a wheelchair. The staff took the issues of severe food allergies seriously. Good vegan menu also. A few glitches with food delivery but overall very good.

This place hops. The service was fast (we told them that we had a movie to get to that night). The food was delicious. The ambiance was buzzy and happy. The location was charming (right next to the canals). Loved it all.

We'd booked a table, glad we did as it was full! Arrived and ordered our drinks, then got asked a further two times by different servers if we wanted any drinks, took 15 mins for a bottle of wine, seemed very disorganised. Having said that the food was great value. Not sure why I've never visited before. Was pretty loud in the restaurant which I wasn't so keen on. But overall food was good, service not so, would definitely wish to attend again though!

Visited the restaurant to celebrate a significant birthday. We were treated very well by the staff. The young lady that looked after our table was especially good, she somehow managed to be attentive without being intrusive. The food was top class. We not rushed in anyway and really enjoyed the experience.

We recently went to Albert's shed in Manchester and ordered from the lunchtime special. Albert's in Didsbury and Manchester have always been our favourite restaurant's for a number of years, for their delicious food and excellent service. We have always found the food consistently high quality, just the right portion size and lots of good choices. It was my husbands Birthday and we were delighted with the food quality, excellent service and ambience of the restaurant again. We will definitely be returning on my Birthday in a few weeks time.

Had the rabbit gnocchi..delicious.. followed by steak.. very nice. My friend was in agreement..she had the lobster risotto..everything was lovely.. sat outside as the weather was good. Nice bottle of wine. We finished off with 2 Espresso martinis.. unfortunately we sent them back ..so weak ..no flavour. They were replaced straight away with no fuss so all was well... would recommend especially when the sun shines and you can dine alfresco..

Been eating here for years. I like that the menu is varied with lots of choice. Unfortunately the food can be a bit hit and miss. Fabulous starter (lamb and halloumi) followed by very average mains (lamb shank / lobster risotto), followed by excellent sweet. Just never quite get all 3 courses bang on. Also don’t like they bring one course after the other. We asked for a 20 minute gap after the starter but I suspect they cooked it straight away and it stood a little while as it wasn’t piping hot. Still good overall but I prefer the lunch menu for quality and price.
