    Slow service from the kitchen, 30mins for a starter comprising of a few slices of bread and a prawn cocktail, the salad was wilted. Received main course 35mins after entree, that was ok but the Roast beef was overcooked, the dinner was swimming in juice, CANNOT call it gravy, it was very watery and tasteless. Green beans were over cooked, dolphinoise potatoes were undercooked. GF sticky toffee pudding was ok but I would change the bowl type so that the ice cream isnt all melted (its sat against the pudding)

    Food was amazing couldn't fault that. The service was poor seemed to be quite a few staff but nobody actually taking charge. Two starters on our table came out well before the two hot starters. Took 4 times of asking to get a diet coke to our table. For a city centre restaurant it was disappointing.

    This was our first visit back since Covid. We were so looking forward to the dining experience that we remembered… and we weren’t disappointed. Great atmosphere, lovely food and excellent service. We had one slight ‘gripe’ which was regarding the starter dish. It was described as Fetta cheese with courgettes. When it came there was literally crumbs of cheese and that was it. A bit mean! We mentioned to the server and within minutes he brought out a separate dish with chunks of Fetta cheese. Rectified to our satisfaction immediately. Customer service as it should be. Well done. We love everything about Albert’s Shed and we will be back.

    We went for my mother’s birthday. There was a party of 8. My husband and I have been multiple times before. Inc. the Worsley and Didsbury restaurants. I had bragged to my family about how lovely the food was and how great the service. One of our starters was forgotten, the chips were not served with the fish and chips for someone else. Another of my family member wasn’t served his drink. And at the end of the meal, we had ordered lattes that were obviously forgotten about, judging how long it took for them to be brought to our table. I had requested a birthday treat for my mother as it was a special occasion. I received an email telling me that she would be brought out a birthday brownie which wasn’t mentioned and completely forgotten about. This was all after our table being late even though we could see that it was ready. Really unhappy with the overall experience and embarrassed because I’d told everyone how brilliant the restaurant was. (Please excuse any possible bad use of grammar. Lol).

    We have been coming to Dukes and Alberts for several years. The overall experience is not as good as it once was. The amount of bar space dedicated to waiters in Dukes is too large leaving less space for customers to go to the bar themselves. The barstaff themselves seemed to be a bit lacking in energy. Many people, like us, meet in Dukes for a drink prior to going into Alberts. On some days there is a planter to prevent people going from Dukes' terrace into Alberts. The staff said it is to help them to control things. It seems to me to be a minor but unnecessary inconvenience to customers. Our booking at Alberts was for 7pm. We arrived on time. It seemed relatively quiet but we didn't get our starters until 8:10pm. We weren't in a rush, but it did seem an excessively long time to wait. The food was very nice. We checked our bill as there was an extra Kracken rum and an extra white wine on it that we had not had. The staff rectified the bill for us. Lucky for us we checked. Many people don't. Our group was my brother and his wife and my wife and me. We always go to Dukes and Alberts when we meet. However, last night for the first time there was the suggestion of 'shall we try somewhere else next time'. Sorry if this sounds all negative. Our experience wasn't horrendous. Just not up to the previous high standards we've experienced there. Best wishes.

    Food was great but it took around 20 minutes for our drinks to come after ordering, which given the restaurant was relatively empty, was longer than we should have had to wait. Once we finished our starters, it took over an hour for our main to come, we asked where our food was once, we were told ‘5 minutes’, then waited another 15 minutes before a manager came and apologised for the wait. The waiting staff were not very attentive and several times we were brought other peoples orders (not great when the wait for our own food was so long).

    Very good in all aspects except we sat outside and had to endure 2 males smoking on the table next to ours while we were eating. A little surprised smoking is permitted in the outside part of this restaurant We would not visit again for this reason and could not recommend for this reason

    1 of our favourite places to visit in an excellent location. We specifically went for the Alberts fish and chips on the lunch menu and were disappointed to be advised it was unavailable. Miraculously, it became available 15 minutes later.

    Sat outside. Very pleasant. Restaurant as a whole was fairly quiet so you'd expect the service to be good. It was. We had the lunch deal, 2 courses for £14.50. Excellent value for money however the pink prosecco at £32 a bottle was a tad expensive! Lovely afternoon spent with friends.

    There was five in our party and the main courses were lovely no complaints whatsoever but 4 of the party had the passion fruit meringue and it was terrible, rock hard pastry and runny meringue when I told the waiter he said they were changing the menu next week and it may be removed and bear in mind this dessert cost over £7 per portion I also saw a lady on another table returning the same dessert which in hindsight we should have done.

    Brilliant meal with great service. From arrival to departure the service was first rate, being helpful with our allergies and ensuring we knew what the options were. The food itself was lovely, e.g., a perfectly cooked rib eye steak and unique cheese and onion pie. Good value too, there were two of us with wine and the total was only just over £100 with service. Highly recommend
