It was ridiculously noisy and we could not have any sort of conversation. Also very cramped seating area. Drink Prices were expensive......£8.40 for a pint of cider and a small tonic water as I was driving....even the tonic water was tiny....120ml compared to other venues which offer 200ml the usual size! I do feel there should be better drink sizes/prices for designated drivers!
Overall I would not rush back but at some point probably go again at a quieter time during the day

Brilliant food and service was great! However car park needs some work all the dirt (from the sand) was all over my car needed to get it cleaned the next day. I would like to see that finished before we return again.

Had to park on overspill car park which was full of clay material that got all over our shoes. Only 1 man working the bar had to wait for drinks. Fish was nice but full of bones. Desert was lovely. Probably wouldn’t visit again

Really enjoyed our visit to Albert's.....had a very enjoyable Friday lunch special. Our only complaint was the car park......it was a rainy day and we had to park in ankle deep ochre coloured mud round the back of the restaurant......inside Albert's the decor and ambience is lovely.....outside is a disaster!!!

Lots of parking and greeting fine. Menu comprehensive and varied and table service was also good. However, there was a long wait between starter and main, which we felt could be because we ordered the seafood platter. Unsure, as it was not mentioned by staff. The seafood platter had risotto on the top tier but did not come with a serving spoon, although this was given to us when we asked. I must mention that the prawns in the risotto still had their tail shells on, which I’m sure they should have been removed. This fact was hidden by the rice and sauce and came to light with an unpleasant crunch. That being said, the food was excellent and we may come back, but was not the dining experience we expected. (Note)This may seem “picky” but paper napkins, albeit good quality, does retract from the excellence you are trying to achieve.
Regards,

The restaurant is very nice and well laid out. The service was very good and staff were very pleasant and quick to serve. We weren't rushed and were allowed to enjoy our lunch at leisure. The good was amazing and certainly good value for money. We will definitely be returning.

Nice food, nice flavour, cooked well, good service, drinks a bit expensive. Rear car park shocking with the harcore they have laid, gets all over your shoes and this transfers into your car. I will come back in dryer weather

Food wasn’t to my liking. It was immediately offered refund. Service was excellent. Hate h thy r plastic white ceiling lights and feel the large space needs breaking up. Looks a little like a Chinese banquet restaurant.

Went for a lunch on our 54th anniversary. My husband said it felt like a canteen, very loud and impersonal. Sent soup back very over seasoned, garnish on husband’s squid was soggy. Main course fish well cooked, chips too fat and soggy had absorbed a lot of oil. Very disappointing!

The starters came quickly but unfortunately the mains took some time to arrive about 35 minutes I had to ask for progress and I was informed that they were being plated up, the meals arrived five minutes later. Overall staff service was very good, the meal was excellent, and we will come again. Music background was a little overbearing hampering conversation.

3 of us went for lunch and were not disappointed. The restaurant was very comfortable, the food was delicious and the waitress attentive. At £12.50 for two courses it was not surprising it was very busy for a Tuesday in January

I have eaten here a number of times since it opened and the food has always been excellent. The staff are lovely, friendly and cheerful but service can be slow at very busy times. The car park is atrocious! Part of it is tarmac and fine, however around the back of the restaurant the car park is a sandy coloured fine gravel. It’s filthy, especially when it’s wet and ruins your shoes or any long clothing.

It was really busy the night we went, yet the service was excellent. Friendly staff. There was a good choice of all courses on the menu and it was good to have salads as a starter or main option. I had the prawn and avocado salad which was fab and the haddock risotto for for, again a really tasty dish. Would definitely go again.

For z a Monday evening Alberts Standish was buzzing! Early reviews tended to suggest there had been some service issues but we needn’t hav Ed worried. The service was attentive without being over bearing and the food was up to the usual standard we’ve come to expect at Alberts. We will be back.

Stunning venue and spoilt for choice with the menu items however service was pretty poor and our waitress seemed too stretched with her section. Hostess seated us and then forgot to put our drinks through meaning we sat for 25 minutes without anything before our waitress came over to take food order, then ordered our drinks again which taken a further 10-15minutes, very lovely lady who served us however wasn’t very knowledgable about the menu dishes or beer selection. Unfortunately the food didn’t hit the heights I was expecting, no complaints with starters however 2/5 mains were a very disappointing with the others being nice but nothing to rave about. Meatball papadelle was very dry and my braised short rib over cooked, both left unfinished. Waitress was a little forgetful over a couple of things such as asking for water for the table and for menu however as mentioned I think she had many other tables. Overall not sure I would return or maybe give it some time for all the teething errors to hopefully be sorted.
I chose Alberts to celebrate two family members birthdays and had high expectations from the menu, venue and pricing however I was very disappointed.

Visited quite a few times and the food and service are very inconsistent. Every visit we’ve been kept waiting at the door for ages - not at all welcoming. Waiting staff very friendly but had to ask for drinks menu after being asked if we wanted a drink! There were about five basic item not available. Waited ages before waitress came for dessert order and it wasn’t busy - she was standing talking to other waitresses. When I left nobody said goodbye or thank you

This restaurant is rapidly becoming one of my favourite places to eat. The lunchtime 2 courses for £12.50 represents excellent value for money with a great selection on this ‘limited’ menu. The quality of the food is fantastic, the service attentive without being overbearing. I can’t wait for my next excuse to visit!! Bravo Albert’s 👌🏻🥂🥰 x

Really noisy, table for 2 pushed right up against a table of 4 with no privacy to talk. Several dishes weren’t available we weren’t told this when we first sat down. My food was luke warm, my partner had ordered fillet steak med/rare they gave him sirloin, rare. Staff were lovely and very apologetic they took both main meals off the bill. Very disappointed with the quality of the food and the noise levels were horrendous! Too many tables for the kitchen to cope with. Will not be going back.

Very busy and very noisy. Table wasn’t ready on time and although food was good, most of it was just ‘warm’ not hot!
Ordered fries myself and got chunky chips.
Our waitress Bev was excellent though, very pleasant and very efficient

As a group of 7 we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, even when one of the mains was slightly wrong, the staff rectified straightaway.
Special mention to our waitress Lauren who went above and beyond for us, a lovely girl and a real credit to the restaurant

Food was excellent although some choices were off the menu which was disappointing. Service good but not overpowering. Bar was packed and very noisy but once we were at our table it was a much better level. wonderful cocktails! Weall loved it and will definitely be coming back
