Superb as always I had the Crispy Duck Egg which was delicious my fiancee had the Malyan Chicken which was also superb. Reservation was for 1245 we order around 15 minutes after being seated, 45 minutes later our server came to our table very apologetic advising she hadn't put our food order through, so we had to reorder again! Came quickly in fairness, was offered no free drink or anything in response to be made to wait for so long

Food quality was outstanding as always, but service was a bit lacking. There was a long wait to request the bill and not many staff around. Upon staff couldn’t advise if a dish could be made without the dressing and there was no offer to check with the chef/kitchen.

Disappointing start, bar problems meant no drinking outside permitted. Waited ages for first drink inside.
Service at the table was good, but food fairly average, considering the price.
Many good restaurants in the local area, so overall Albert’s wouldn’t be our first choice of venue.

Hi Janet. Thanks for your feedback. I am sorry that the bar was closed for an hour on Saturday due to an issue with our cellar, unfortunately we had no option other than to do this and we couldn't have foreseen it. This will also be why your drinks took a little longer than normal. This isn't our usual standard so I do hope you'll give us another try in the near future as I am sure it will be excellent. Thanks for the feedback hope to see you soon. Kind Regards, Lauren - General Manager

We had a good time, sometimes the background music was a little loud, inhibiting conversation. the backgound music was also a little banal, we are more of an 80's era couple.

We have been a couple of times before over the last year, the menu hasn't evolved that much over that period.

The service was very good and efficient, perhaps a little too efficient.

COVID precautions all seemed fine to us.

Hi Andy. Thanks for your review. I appreciate your feedback regarding the music, we do try and have a playlist that pleases everyone but it shouldn't be too loud so I am sorry for that I will keep an eye on it. I am glad you enjoyed the service, I will pass your feedback on to the team. Thanks for coming and hope to see you again. Kind Regards, Lauren - General Manager.

Service was slow. Ordered sirloin but was brought fillet, apology made but was still charged for fillet !! When booking was made no option for inside or outside so 2 weeks before attending called in and asked for outside…no problem sir…when attended only inside available !! What I thought was wrong was that I had booked and asked for outside but was told no outside table available due to walkins!!! Surely that can’t be right ??? Usually a good experience but this was a bit disappointing and was a birthday meal for my wife so did not want to raise issues there and then.

Hi Keith, thanks for your review. Sorry to hear about our mix up with the steak and outdoor table that you wanted. I wish I had been made aware of these issues on the evening so I or my team could have rectified things for you. I understand you didn't want to discuss this on your wife's birthday, no problem thanks for highlighting it to me now for our internal feedback and to try to prevent future reoccurrence. I hope this wont put you off returning as our standards are very high. Regards Lauren

Bar shut for no obvious reason. However some served and others not. Junior staff no idea what was happening. People who booked turned away. Not good if it’s a special occasion . Inexperienced staff. No ownership of issues . Food very generic. Too expensive for venue. Need some sophisticated staff management

Hi, thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear your feedback regarding your visit on Saturday. Unfortunately we did have to close our bar for just over an hour due to an issue with our cellar. With a few of our staff isolating to be safe, we had new staff working to try to keep the service going. This wasn't ideal and I'm sorry that this showed during your visit. We as a management team do try our best to avoid such situations but unfortunately Saturday was a one off. Sorry for any upset caused.

This is second time I've been to Albert's in the last 10 days and as I said in my first review, every body deserves a second chance .........However, you can't get away from the fact that the food is decidedly average and the portions are meager, when you add to this to the "restricted" menu there really isn't very much to write home about. The quality of the food has really taken a nose dive through recent times, last nights meal was way below the standard I've come to expect from Albert's and it is now nowhere near the standard of rivals such as the Dish and the Cherry Tree.
This review is not just the opinion of an individual, the 4 other people that ate with me last night ate with me previously and I'm afraid we all reached the same conclusion, at the moment, Albert's is a bar and not a restaurant. On a positive note the service was excellent as always and the staff were very professional and attentive to our needs, this has always been a great feature of the venue in my opinion.

Hi Nick, thanks for your review and compliments regarding the service received on your visit. I'm sorry to read about your feelings towards our food. We do get many raving reviews about the food so it's disappointing and surprising to read your feedback. If you could provide me with details of your visit, i.e time/date and what menu items were ordered I will gladly look into this some more internally with our kitchen team. Thanks for the feedback and hope to hear from you soon. Regards, Lauren
