Excellent food & service, the only thing to let down the visit was the really sad state of the bathroom facilities - no paper, otherwise i would have given 5 stars across the board.

Lovely lunch, had the Roast and once again so tasty. We had Roast beef and 2 Roast hi Ken, all delicious. Service was excellent. We phoned ahead as we’re we’re going to be late and this wasn’t an issue. Would highly recommend Alberts Standish for any time of day. Thank you x

Pleasant environment, nice place to meet friends although menu is uninspiring and drinks are very expensive. Limited places to eat in Standish so it’s good to have somewhere ‘nice’.

I normally don’t write reviews but this time I just can’t help myself. We came here on a Saturday night, we thought let’s try something new. Place is nice, very hip I’d say. The welcoming was lovely, our waitress was attentive. We’ve ordered drinks to start with - my aperol spritz was the usual tasteless glass full of ice, oh well. We’ve ordered our food and a bottle of wine. Starter was fantastic, rabbit gnocchi can’t recommend it enough. Weirdly our bottle of wine came already open and just left on the table. We’ve filled our glasses and I’ve noticed loads of bits swimming in mine wine. Not one or two, just plenty. We never normally complain but I wouldn’t drink this in my own house, so definitely won’t drink it in a restaurant when wine is so overpriced. We’ve asked the waiter to change it, she had to speak to manager first. She came back after few mins to ask again what exactly we’d like to be done. We’ve explained we’d like a new bottle of wine as we haven’t drink it yet and changing glass won’t really do anything. She went off and few mins later the manager comes. He asks yet again what is the problem, we’ve explained, to what he says,,so you want me to change whole bottle of wine cause of those few tiny bits of cork in your glass??’’. We’ve calmly replied yes but I literally couldn’t believe the cheek and attitude I was just given. Call me crazy but when I pay for any service I expect high standard, that’s just me. After a while the manager brought new bottle of wine, opened it in front of us in uncomfortable silence and would of walk away without saying anything if my partner wouldn’t say thank you. He’s got a be patience of saint - he’s with me after all :) but even he couldn’t believe the shocking treatment we’ve just received. The rest of the evening was just tainted with this awful experience. The main wasn’t the best - steak wasn’t rested at all, desserts were lovely and wine was actually nice. But would I come back - probably not!!!!!

Although Albert’s has now fully opened, the same cannot be said about their menu, which has become boring and certain dishes removed e.g. little pie and peas, scallops, vegetables no longer included with certain dishes.
We hope the menu will be revitalised in the very near future.

This was a birthday meal with family, I’d say it’s definitely a destination to go for a catch up and drinks, service was really good as was the atmosphere. Lovely place to go, the only thing that slightly let it down was the food which was just nice or average

We’ve visited Alberts at Standish many times now at various times in the day/evening and various days in the week and it never fails to impress. The food is always lovely and the service is always great. Jackie the lady who served us this time was just lovely and couldn’t do enough for us! Always look forward to our next visit.

We dine here quite often and were more than impressed with the experience on our latest visit. Firstly the waitress who served us was extremely welcoming, polite and friendly. We both had the mushrooms on toast as a starter which was excellent. My wife then had the Malayan chicken and I had the rump of lamb. Both meals were outstanding and served on hot plates with generous portions. you cannot fault this place. We will definitely be going back soon.

Nice menu, presentation was superb - I don’t eat large portions, but you would need a starter or pudding for a satisfactory evening meal - I ate at lunch time so the portion suited me - really nice surroundings and ambience

Very popular restaurant and it was very busy, our table was by the door and underneath a speaker, so a little loud. Food was good, staff very pleasant, though there were a couple of mistakes on our order. We go regularly and have already booked for another evening. Be aware that the Covid precautions like the Perspex screens between the outside booths have now been removed and the staff are no longer masked.

The service was outstanding! The food was delicious and I loved the ambience of the restaurant. We sat outside due to health reasons, but hopefully in the future we'll sit inside as it looked lovely. The food wasn't the cheapest, but it was so delicious, so worth it. The wine was very reasonable - had a great bottle for £21. We'll definitely go again. Would recommend to anyone.

Great food and atmosphere. A little expensive and we had a 10% service charge added which I didn’t think was necessary. We enjoyed our visit and we will return.
