    We love the Albert at Standish but was very disappointed with the overall standard of our meal. I had the lunch menu but didn’t want the hash browns with the chicken dish. I asked if I could have some salad. A small bowl arrived with a few leaves and one slither of Parmesan cheese. But then you charged me £4.50 for it which I thought was very unreasonable as all I actually had on my plate was a piece of chicken!! No vegetables. Just appalling. The sweet choice was dire. I opted for the peach and was totally astounded at what was presented. It was awful!! There is no recompense when you say you are disappointed. Overall you need to review the standard of the meals which is actually going down. Such a shame because everything else is lovely.

    Love Albert's itself but always something wrong.....This time steak and sauce was stone cold obviously waiting on the chips which were piping hot. Wifes sweet potatoes fries were also cold and daughters cheese and onion pie was not worthy of being on a menu.Won't be rushing back for food but will just stick to drinks on the terrace

    Dined here on Sunday 7 August with my family for the first time. I was impressed with the ambience of the restaurant and the service was very good. However, even though we enjoyed our meals , the plates were not warmed up so the food was lukewarm at it's best.

    Went on a rare child free date night. Usually love the food but my halloumi battered fish and chips was over salted and swimming in grease. My husbands starter was fried and overly greasy and thick with batter also.- shame as he has the same starter a few weeks ago and loved it. His beef roast dinner was great apart from the beef which is terrible really. Meat was fatty and poor. Service was much slower than usual. All in all disappointing for alberts.

    We have dined at Alberts Standish on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed the experience. However on this occasion we did not enjoy it as much as usual for the following reasons. The guitarist/singer was not the best, out of tune, screeching and overshadowing the atmosphere, it was too noisy. The Sunday roast was not the best, the roast potatoes were hard and the stuffing was also very hard. I also found a long grey hair in my mashed potato and feeling quite embarrassed I could not mention it to the staff, which I know that I should have done. It really wasn't the best experience, quite disappointing for a Sunday lunch.

    Sunday lunch with my husband & my son. Chose to have the Sunday Roast with rump of beef, my son had slow roasted pork. All was delicious. Plentiful hot vegetables. Charming , helpful waitress . Background music provided by a solo singer who sang lots of popular music. Sat outside after lunch, listening to the soloist & enjoying the sunshine.

    I went with 3 friends for brunch. It was fairly quiet and a nice atmosphere but the service was really bad. Firstly they forgot my drink and when I asked them about it they said a drink was never ordered. I did order a coffee and it was never added to the tab. Once that was sorted all three of us ordered the Eggs Benedict, my friend had been there multiple times and they had always swapped the ham for bacon. When we asked for this they said they couldn’t do it, so my friend said why not because she has been before and this has been done. The waiter said she would check. She never came back to confirm but when the food came out they had swapped it. The food was disappointing I’ve been to alberts before for evening meal this is the first time for breakfast. It was very bland not much taste and the eggs were only warm, when you opened it, it was cold inside. My friends was the same too. We all got up and went to the toilet, we told them that we would be returning to the table but when we did return a few minutes later everything from the table had been cleared including our drinks which we had not finished. So we sat back down and got chatting for an hour and during this time not one person came to ask us if we wanted anything else. If we were asked if we wanted another drink we would have happily had one but it’s almost like they didn’t care, we tried many times to get the attention of someone but were ignored. Overall good vibe and nice place but service was a massive letdown and the food didn’t live up to expectations.

    Not a relaxing dining experience. Children allowed ro run around unsupervised and staff did not speak to the parents. Food was mediocre and did not live up to its menu description. Nice decor but tables a little too close together. Staff were attentive. Shame the food does not live up to the service.

    Our waiter was really great . His happy disposition and efficient service made for a very enjoyable experience. I think his name was James , well done to him 👏🏻. The food was extremely good and great value for money . And as it was fizz Friday we did partake of several bottles of half price champagne 🍾. Then cocktails at the bar , which as always didn’t disappoint! Will deffo be back ☺️

    Delicious meal except for the dessert. The mini Eccles cake was raw, like it had been microwaved from frozen. The pastry was too thin and was uncooked. Staff dealt with it well and removed it from the bill. 👍

    Waitress was fantastic and really looked after us. Food was ok my mum had fish and chips and the mushy peas were cold. The Eccles cake was small and insipid, I would have thought it could have been improved with grilling so the sugar browned slightly. Overall it was a nice experience great service with mediocre food.

    Great venue for a birthday celebration meal. We had a 3 course meal, each course was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Our waiter was attentive and took great care of us. Also had a surprise piece of cake with a candle for the birthday man. Have been in the past, but this far exceeded our previous experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the night and will return. Thank you

    The table for twos could be arranged differently.. to give couples a bit of privacy.. they seem to be placed as after thought filling in floor space around the group tables… I realise that floor space has to be maximised to increase headcount and revenue.. few tables tucked into corners would help if you wanted a bit of romance with a partner..
