Went for my partners birthday, he had been wanting to go for quite a while however we were disappointed with the food. Both starters and mains were bland - not badly cooked, just not very flavoursome. Both had the 'Spring Onion Mash' which may as well have been plain mash as we could not see nor taste any spring onion. My partner's potato dauphinois was the nicest thing we had.

We always enjoy going to Alberts Shed. However this time staff were terribly busy and so service wasn't terribly attentive. I had sea bass and my gratin dauphinoise potatoes looked as if they had been cut out of a large dish that had been cooked for a while. All in all good and I would go back.

Never had anything bad there, very accommodating, if you want extra on your plate or a slight variation it’s never a problem

Lovely brunch, food was very very good and the staff very attentive and polite. The outside seats were very comfortable and the whole place, including bathrooms, was spotlessly clean.

This is a really nice place to dine and have a good evening, pitty the service wasn't great and let the night down considering it wasn't that busy and most of the waiters/watresses were outside and rarely came in so we constantly had to find someone to ask for drinks. We have dined at Alberts in Worsley a few times and they provide a better service along with same good quality food.

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

Always good when back in Manchester... food is the main draw, but wine and dessert also excellent! This time the roast beef and yorkshire pudding, cheese and onion pie, and sticky toffee pudding were delicious!

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.

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.
