We opened our first restaurant in Castlefield, Manchester in 2004 with a clear aim:

To deliver quality food to local customers at a reasonable price in a sharp,modern space with friendly, pretentious service. We have pursued that goal ever since and it has earned us many loyal customers.

Our menu is probably classed as British with some additional favourites from Italy and around the globe.

We have one of the best locations in Didsbury on Barlow Moor Road between West Didsbury and Didsbury village. With one of the best alfresco dining spaces anywhere around.

Brunch at Alberts is always delightful. Freshly cooked but with title delay between ordering and receiving your meal. Excellent quality, service and value for money.

There are not enough vegan options…I opted for the Malaysian curry vegan but it was barely warm when it arrived, and wasn’t as good as used to be…not enough chickpeas and couldn’t find any spinach…why not offer a Beyond burger like other Didsbury eateries do.

We were served what appeared to be reheated overcooked chips, a shade less dark than burnt, overly battered tiny piece of fish with stale bread and butter. We ate it because we so hungry but my guest and I were far from impressed, and she remarked that the fish especially was not the typically delicious Alberts speciality we had enjoyed on past visits. There was no Sticky Toffee Pudding left at 1pm when I asked to order. Our disappointment was further increased by the second choice Eton Mess dessert which had sour, curdled cream and tasted distinctly “off”. I called the Waiter over at this point because I was unhappy and complained. He replaced the desserts with new plates. The bar service and table service were both reasonably ok but the waiting staff did seem under pressure and I overheard a number of other customers complaining that they were being kept waiting for their food and drinks. Very, very disappointed and won’t be going back there any time soon. I apologized to my guests for inviting them out to such a disappointing meal which was meant to be a celebration after being locked down and being unable to meet up together face to face for over 18 months. Very Poor rating on this occasion

Overall okay. Asked for a seat outside. They were definitely not short of this, but because I booked indoor already, they did not want to accommodate. Our table was less than one metre next to the other. Very noisy & hot, this may be because it was full

Service was really good but food disappointing for value. We were really looking forward to a Gluten Free Roast but were disappointed when it came without roast potatoes or yorkshire pudding and you get very little roast beef. No mention on the menu that it comes without these items.

I went with a group of woman for lunch. The food was very nice but two at the table food was cold . The waiting staff were very good and on it but the bar service was so slow. Ordered a drink and had to wait 20 minutes for it and had to leave it as I had a lift. Informed the table would need to be vacated before we received our final drinks. Only issue really would to get more bar staff for the busy period.

Was not impressed with the steak. Plus now having to pay extra for a side. Used to get 2 sides abs a sauce. Now either or. Steak was under seasoned

Still love the atmosphere here and the staff are lovely.

Front of house lets Albert"s down badly, would recommend retraining.
Albert"s was"nt busy, but wsited 40 minutes for a bottle of wine after asking twice where it was. There were 3 of us, 2meals came, had to wait 15mins for the 3rd,when you go out for a meal togetherusually its to eat together. Manager very patronising on approach.
Staff seemed like they did"nt know what they were doing.
Cancelled my birthday meal for August, normally its all Great.

Extremely disappointed in how this restaurant runs its business and how it deals with customers when they are not happy. 40 min I had to wait for my drink (cocktail) everybody else’s arrived before our meal. Eventually when it arrived it was awful to which I sent it back to make another. Another 10 min passes I ask again where my drink is baring in mind it’s 28 deg outside and I’ve been sat with no drink for this length of time. The waitress came back and said really sorry but the guy behind the bar has actually admitted he doesn’t know how to
Make the cocktail you’ve asked for so can I get you something else free of charge. I ask for an aperol spritze. My food arrives I still don’t have a drink I have to ask again my drink turns up and I’ve literally got a few more mouthful s left of my main course to eat. We ask for the bill and there it is we’ve also been charged for the drink to which we told the waitress who was extremely apologetic and embarrassed and had it removed. Apparently all manager s were new NO ONE came to apologise we won’t be returning anytime soon. Very disappointed.

Would have preferred staff to continue with covid care. After freedom day no staff wore masks. My group was pleased to have a bay table and screens still in place.
The food was delicious. Well presented on the plate. Ambience pleasurable. Service very slow. Our waiter didn’t smile once!
