We opened our first restaurant in Castlefield, Manchester in 2004 with a clear aim: To deliver quality food to local customers at a reasonable price in a sharp, modern space with friendly, unpretentious service. We have pursued that goal ever since and it has earned us many loyal customers. Our menu is probably classed as British with some additional favourites from Italy and around the globe. Albert's Worsley provides a slick, modern space with dining for 180 guests inside and features a fabulous outside dining terrace for 60.

Was very busy on arrival, which is to be expected around Christmas time but then had to wait 40 minutes for the table to be ready which was a bit annoying. Once sat down the service was great, food was nice, one of the glasses was dirty but the waiter was very apologetic and sorted it quickly.

Usually love Alberts. Have been going for years, and my daughter had her wedding reception there. But never again. My fault for booking a table in December. The place was packed, including Christmas parties. I could not hear anything my dining companion said. The waitress was useless. She informed me that the 2 course deal was the same on the Christmas menu as the usual table menu. I showed her that they were not. She said “ well that’s what I was told “. She couldn’t explain if I could order the 2 course deal for £12.95 from the Chris menu. So I panicked.... ordered the parsnip soup. It was watery and salty. For my second course I had the Bream. Rock hard and nearly too salty to eat. Fed up with forcing the food down I left the strange pink risotto it was served with.
I think this is the very first bad review I have ever left. As my Mother always said “ if you can’t say something nice , don’t say anything”.
But really, the whole experience was dire.

We returned back to Albert's after a couple of recent bad experiences.

I'm really pleased to say that everything has improved drastically.

The staff have smartened up, and service was with a smile.

The food was served quickly and the lunch menu is great value for money.

Really pleased as it means we can return again as we used to go often.

We were a party of four who were promptly shown to our table. The luncheon menu was chosen by three of our party. They found it excellently priced and varied. All enjoyed it. One member chose from the normal menu and was pleasantly surprised by the variety of choice. I was extremely pleased with my choices and will visit again soon.

Lunch with friends proved to be a great success. The lunch menu is superb value for money and the service from our waitress, Lenka, was first class. Not the first time we've dined at Alberts and it won't be the last. One small criticism, we had to ask for the piped music to be turned down in order to converse but the volume was reduced the moment we asked.

Very enjoyable meal, well looked after, maybe a bit noisy but adds to the ambiance a little.
Prompt service at the table but had to wait at the bar to buy a drink when I arrived has there was only one person serving and she was making a round of cocktails for a table so I waited at least ten minutes before she even looked my way which always a poor. Eventually another young woman came and served me but there was no apology to me for waiting.

Another great visit to Albert's Swinton. Went for the 2 course fixed price before 6pm and the food was excellent. Service was good and Leo was attentive. Only downside was the price of some drinks which I didn't realise until after ... £6.10 for a pint - ouch. But overall it was a good visit with great food and a lovely place to dine.

This was my daughter’s birthday. 7 of us. The 3 people who didn’t have the Christmas turkey dinner were completely satisfied with their meals, however, the turkey dinner was more of a ‘dogs dinner’. The turkey tasted like it was pre-packed, the roast potatoes and veg was very over cooked, as if they’d been kept on the side all day, then quickly nuked, ( reminiscent of carvery veg kept under heat lamps for hours) .
As a result of this disappointment, we’ve now cancelled our Christmas Eve booking.

Thank you for your review I'm sorry to read that the guest who ordered the turkey dinners were disappointed. Nothing should be hot held so I will be looking into this. It's disappointing to read that you have cancelled your Christmas eve booking as it sound like you did not receive up to standard dinners and this would not be happen again. May I ask was your disappointment with the food brought to the attention of your server? Can I also check did a manager check with you during the meal? Karen

Lovely meal in lovely surroundings. I visit Albert’s regularly with friends. Only disappointing feature was that staff took a long time to return with change after paying bill. Had to go to the front desk to ask for it. The restaurant wasn’t busy at this time either.

Food and service was fantastic, but the noise level was awful. Nobody could talk properly, quite disappointed, especially as I told one of your ladies that 3 of the party wore hearing aids (myself being one of them) and it was very uncomfortable for me and them, but the music level wasn't adjusted at all. I would recommend Albert's, but not at Christmas time.

Thank you for your review Nade, the music level should be being monitored by the managers depending what day and time it is and adjusted accordingly. I will certainly pass your feedback onto the team so that they can keep an eye on it, Karen

I was very unhappy when dining this time, my chicken had red, bloody veins in. It really put me off. I left the food and didn't bother ordering a dessert

Thank you for your review, I'm sorry that your chicken dish wasn't up to standard please may I ask if you brought this to the attention of your server or a manager on the day? If you could possibly let me know this along with what name your booking was under and the time of your booking I would really appreciate it, Karen

Party of eight. Service great, food lovely except for one of party said his food was mediocre, filet steak bit thin and dauphinois potatoes not very hot so he was disappointed.
Lovely time though, very busy as usual!

Have eaten here on several occasions, usually at lunchtime or early evening. This time we came in the evening, although the food, service and cocktails were great (as usual) the noise level from the music being played was very loud and made it difficult to have a conversation at our table as we ended up having to raise our voices to hear each other. We did have a lovely time but I will probably stick to eating there at lunch or around teatime going forward

Yes & No.

Yes because the food was lovely; however, the service really was terrible. We can with 3 children in our party on Sunday afternoon in time for a 5.30 table and had to wait until 6.00 for the table to be cleared and re dressed. The service from the waiting staff was really slow and we had to wait for everything. A starter came wrong and the new one came when everyone else had finished theirs and a main was completely missed off and also then came out once most other people had finished their meals.

Went for breakfast on a Sunday morning with wife and my elderly sister. Service was prompt and friendly, but food was disappointing. Wife’s scrambled egg came on cold unbuttered toast. No butter was offered. My egg and bacon was served on a cold plate. Bacon was hard and must have been standing somewhere as it was not hot. My sister’s food - a child’s mini breakfast was not hot. We ordered toast and marmalade afterwards - when it came it was cold and burnt and needed scraping before we could eat it. Our 2 pots of tea with our meal were too strong and when we asked for hot water to weaken them, a single small jug of not very hot water was brought. If we hadn’t been entertaining my sister we would have complained. We regularly lunch at Albert’s and don’t have a problem with the food - we have never had a need to complain before.

Starters were really good all round but some of our groups mains let it down. My lamb rump was really tough with a golf ball size lump of fat in it and when I told our waiter they didn’t seem to care. My friend had a fillet steak that wasn’t upto the quality it should of been and my other friend had to send her desert back 3 times which the manager was apologetic about.
Our waiter for the night was arrogant and rude all night by throwing napkins across the table to us rather than walking around and placing them and he even argued with my friend at one point. When bringing it up with the manager he apologised And gave us 25% off our food and drink and mentioned that we’re not the first table to complain about him so he should either receive some more training on how to act around customers or find a new job because he clearly just didn’t care.
