    The only small criticism is that the starter Rabbit Gnocchi was a bit on the small size but we appreciate two courses for £14:50 is good value Apart from that as always we loved it

    Only allowed 90 minutes at the table, just long enough to finish two courses and coffee then were told we needed to leave because they were very busy- not my problem. Overall very average and will not be going back.

    It’s a vastly different restaurant than what it used to be sadly. It don’t feel like a dining experience, it felt like a Wetherspoons. My king prawn starter was a mess of far too much sauce and 3 small king prawns with cheap bread. One of the prawns was still partly raw. My main was the butternut squash salad - the person I was with had steak and a side of butternut…my butternut was the same small diced cubes as his side - stupid. And the ratio of my salad was almost an entire bag of rocket, baratta that was served straight from the fridge so was colder than should be, and minimal butternut squash. Won’t be going back.

    The food was excellent but the staffing level wasn’t enough to cover the number of tables downstairs whilst having a function upstairs. This made the wait times long and the service slow.

    What a beautiful restaurant. Off the beaten track slightly but within easy walking distance of the train station. Stunning setting and the inside of the restaurant was very tranquil with low level soft music. Staff were polite, helpful and friendly - the manager was even walking about tables checking that all was ok. The food was outstanding and so much choice. Vegetarian/vegan well covered too. We went for my daughter's birthday and the staff went above and beyond to make our celebrations very memorable. Certainly the best restaurant we have visited in a very long time. Will definitely come again next time we're in Manchester.

    Had a lovely birthday meal with some friends and family on Saturday. Great and friendly service from the staff and delicious food and a nice atmosphere. They also provided an extra chair when asked as we would have been a little squished without, and brought out a cake we purchased and sang happy birthday. Good options for different dietary requirements including veggie, nut allergy and coeliac. Will definitely return.

    We went having heard good things. I ordered a pie, expecting crispy pastry, but was given soggy pastry that gave the distinct impression of having been microwaved. We had to ask 3 times for tap water, none of the glasses were clean, there was sediment in my wine, and we kept getting a different server. We were also told by 3 different servers that they would bring us dessert menus but we ended up waiting 10 minutes until I managed to flag down a server. All in all, will not be going back.

    Given that the restaurant was fairly quiet the service wasn’t great. We would have stayed for coffee/more drinks but opted to leave in the end as we were not attended to. 4 of the meals were fine but my sirloin steak was cremated, the peppercorn sauce was of thin consistency and a handful of skinny fries just did not justify the price charged.

    Had the ravioli for starters it was like baby food, drowning in sauce. We ordered a bottle of wine and the main arrived before the drink. We had to ask if we were being given the wine. Staff didn't seem to have any direction or seem to know what they were doing. We were not asked how our meal was at all. Had the sea bass for main, very poorly presented, tasked like slop, bizarre giant size spring roll slapped on side of plate.

    Went to Alberts Shed for a Valentines weekend meal with my boyfriend. Immediately we were greeted warmly by the person on the front desk and shown to our seats. The greeter was very friendly and chatty and took our coats before bringing us menus. The service staff were all extremely prompt and very friendly and myself and my boyfriend feel at ease. It was a Sunday but the whole menu was on offer not just the Sunday Menu. There was a lot of choice for starters and mains and good list of drinks, the only downside being they didn’t do alcohol-free wine by the glass but not the end of the world as there were mocktails and 0% beers and cider. The food was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. Really well presented and well worth the price. Dessert lovers may find the dessert menu a bit limited but the sticky toffee pudding is amazing so would highly recommend that. All in all a 5 star meal and a lovely experience!
