    1 of our favourite places to visit in an excellent location. We specifically went for the Alberts fish and chips on the lunch menu and were disappointed to be advised it was unavailable. Miraculously, it became available 15 minutes later.

    Sat outside. Very pleasant. Restaurant as a whole was fairly quiet so you'd expect the service to be good. It was. We had the lunch deal, 2 courses for £14.50. Excellent value for money however the pink prosecco at £32 a bottle was a tad expensive! Lovely afternoon spent with friends.

    A really nice place, fantastic food and really good value for money. We paid £150.00 for three courses for three people including a bottle of wine and a cocktail each. That's outstanding value for excellent food. Lovely ambience too.

    There was five in our party and the main courses were lovely no complaints whatsoever but 4 of the party had the passion fruit meringue and it was terrible, rock hard pastry and runny meringue when I told the waiter he said they were changing the menu next week and it may be removed and bear in mind this dessert cost over £7 per portion I also saw a lady on another table returning the same dessert which in hindsight we should have done.

    Brilliant meal with great service. From arrival to departure the service was first rate, being helpful with our allergies and ensuring we knew what the options were. The food itself was lovely, e.g., a perfectly cooked rib eye steak and unique cheese and onion pie. Good value too, there were two of us with wine and the total was only just over £100 with service. Highly recommend

    We was very disappointed with our food from alberts shed. We didn’t enjoy the meal and it took a while for each course to come out to the point where we had to ask where our food was. The cheese and onion pie was awful, the filling was like a paste which was not nice. This is such a shame as we usually love it at alberts shed.

    The vegan starters we had were nice but the mains were awful! The Pizza looked like it had been made by a child! The door to the toilet bangs loudly also. We paid £4 for a small roasted potato which was supposed to be a fondant potato. Overall really disappointing and upsetting I spent money on this restaurant No seasoning on the pasta dish either, tinned tomato and uncooked veg

    This was our second visit of the month after an amazing first time with my wife for her birthday - we decided to take our son (5 year old) there for a meal. His meal was fantastic (fish and chips) and our meal was amazing too. He was given some crayons and an activity sheet and he enjoyed himself very much. The staff are great and atmosphere is fabulous. This has become a regular when we visit Manchester and we always leave with beautiful memories to keep. I had a cocktail this time as well and was delicious!

    Have eaten at Alberts Shed many times and always enjoyed the food. The seating area outside is comfortable and when it gets cool the heaters are put on. The only area letting it down this time was the service. We had numerous different waiting staff. We waited 25 minutes for our plates to be cleared and were without drinks for quite a time. We had to get the attention of a waiter to replenish our drinks. Sadly found the service lacking on this occasion.

    Very good ambience,very polite and courteous staff,and prompt service. Menu was limited as changed due to hot weather but food ordered was of high standard and good taste. Vegetarian options were limited but was told due to the hot weather Parking free too which was a bonus. All in all an excellent experience and we definitely visit again

    The music from next door at Dukes 92 was very loud and the crowds very rowdy with fights breaking out. When sat outside we couldn't hear each other talk and did distract from the nice meal. Food and service was good but was a shame about the noise levels.
