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. The new space, which will be created from the former New Ellesmere pub and restaurant site on the East Lancashire Road, aims to provide a slick, modern space with dining for 180 guests inside and will also feature a fabulous outside dining terrace for 60.

I've visited many time in recent weeks and had lovely experience, not so on Sat night, my husband's birthday. drinks order was wrong, my starter ( scallop dish) very bland. My husband's shirt rib of beef was greasy. Overall most disappointed.

Food was nice, but the bar service was poor. Order processco to arrive wirh main course which we had to asked for twice. We got champagne, which we return so we had nearly finished eating by the time the correct bottle arrive. Then we were charged for the champagne which was more than double the cost.

Heard good things about Alberts so my step daughter said she would take me for a birthday lunch as they did a lovely 2 course lunch for 12.50 .
What a disappointment!!
The wait was long for both someone to take our order and bring the food, that you don't mind so much if the food is worth waiting for, alas this wasn't.
I had mushrooms that were swimming in a watery pool on the plate and were luke warm at their best my step daughter had soup which was slightly better.
The steak main course was again only just warm the chips were lukewarm and tasteless and there wasnt even a salad garnish on the plate just a steak and a pile of likewarm fries .
The fish and chips were basically 4 chips and a pile of batter hardly any fish at all just hollow batter !
I felt sorry for my young stepdaughter who had wanted to treat me so i didn't make a fuss .
My step daughter gave her money to the waitress who took it and never returned assuming the change was her tip ! my step daughter had no intention of leaving ANY tip it wasnt even worth the money she had to pay.
When she asked for her change it was slammed down on the table without a sorry how was your meal thank you ...nothing!
No one at any point asked if we had enjoyed our meal or came over to ask if everything was ok .
I will never return here nor would i recommend it to any of my friends or family .
I was considering booking for my mums 80th this year im so glad i paid a visit first.
This may have been a one off but if not then Alberts is overrated with poor service and below average food .

Enjoyed family lunch. Had to remind about coffee which was not a problem, however it was cold when it eventually arrived.

Visit on a regular basis and always enjoy the food and will definitely be returning.

It was our first visit to Albert's, the venue is lovely and staff friendly and professional. However, the service was slow, there seemed too few staff. In addition, our food was missing key elements, staff apologetic and took steps to rectify; sadly the food items took too long to arrive and we had almost finished our food.
This experience has not dissuaded us to return as the food we did have was very tasty. I would recommend the venue and hope for an improved experience on return.

We went to Alberts in Worsley as a treat for my son for doing well at school and I couldn't recommend it enough. We were seated straight away, orders were taken without having to wait very long at all, they catered for our allergies and the food came not too long after. The food was delicious, we both had steak and thoroughly enjoyed it, followed by pudding. The staff were very friendly and also spoke to my son to order his food rather than me, which made him feel very special. He also got a mocktail for eating all his dinner. Absolutely will be going back!

This was the first time I have had Sunday lunch ( I have visited several times for the set menu) and was most impressed. Three of us had the roast beef and one the pork and each of us said how delicious it was. We would definitely book for Sunday lunch again.

Transit vans parked in disabled bays so couldn’t park. Service was extremely slow and we had to chase up to order drinks as they tried to take the food order first. Food took ages and had to send my meal back. New meal was served after the rest of the table had finished. Had to chase to order desert. Then finally had to chase for the deserts. Only offered once to order drinks and our glasses were empty for a long time. Dirty plates not removed in a timely manner. Will not be back !

Arrived at 10am for breakfast. Ordered drinks. 40 minutes later everyone around us was being served food and we hadn't had our order taken - I had to ask. By this point we had to give in to our toddler and give him snacks to keep him quiet. This meant he didn't eat the breakfast we paid for. Then the waiter comes over with sauce because the chef forgot to put it on the breakfast butty we both ordered. We ordered a round of toast as we were hungry from waiting. This came instantly - which was because it was obviously just what was left on the side because it was stone cold. Luckily they didn't charge for this else I would of said something. I normally like coming to Albert's but this put me off going again

Food had to go back because fillet steak was over cooked and then we had all eaten when my husbands arrived ! Ordered latte coffee which had to go back twice due to sour milk then we cancelled them ! We requested the Duty manager who reduced the bill to take coffees off and reduce 1 main meal by 50%, still not except able for this standard of restaurant.

I found my meal to be bland and in need of seasoning. My friend’s meal stated that it had crispy potatoes on the top but they were crisps - there is a difference. I have been before and had a good meal which is why I would recommend it and I think the lunch time menu is good value.

Sorry guys...food really disappointing. Think we all found the starters a bit pretentious (presentation wise) and not particularly tasty. For mains, I had fish n chips. Chips were really dry and overly firm - felt as though they were yesterdays re-warmed. And the fish was predominantly batter.

Nice place, nice food, lovely staff. My only complaints are it was too loud - they had a duo on who where good, but too loud in my opinion, so everyone talking loud to be heard above them. Just turn it down a bit! Also turn the heating down, absolutely sweating in there Sunday. My Mum enjoyed it though, it was a birthday meal before heading to the The Lowry for a show , so thats the main thing

Only been once before, a few years ago and hadn`t been back as I prefer older establishments with a bit of character but decided to give it another go.
The only problem was the length of time to be served although it was quite busy.
Apart from that, everything was fine. I jut prefer some olde worlde charm, with nooks and crannies and different spaces; not one vast open plan dining area.
