A meal made with love and tenderloin...

The staff here are well trained, attentive, professional and more than adequate. We arrived for Sunday lunch having had no breakfast. The mushroom risotto was sensational - true fungi flavour with perfectly cooked rice. It was like tasting a piece of heaven! The main roast dinner was nice... read more

The main roast dinner was nice - perhaps lacking a good roast potato but the dauphinoise was stunning!... More

Because it was birthday and they kindly brought out a little cake with a candle and a glass of fizz, what a lovely touch. I would definitely recommend. The staff are are... More

Visited Alberts Shed on a recent trip to Manchester as it never disappoints and once again we were very happy with our lunchtime meal. We opted for the 2 course lunch offer. We both had the scallops - amazing - only criticism there was that it was a tiny portion. Every bit was delicious in flavour though. I chose the... More

Lovely area & restaurant is very modern & spotless inside. We had Sunday lunch from the set menu which is very reasonable & it was really nice. Staff were friendly. Nice relaxing atmosphere. The main menu looked great & I definitely plan on going back to try it.

Read the TA reviews on this restaurant and decided to visit on a recent day trip to Manchester. Really hot day and lots of people sitting outside, really nice atmosphere. We were quite a bit earlier than our booked table time but the staff found us a great table. Both had fish for mains then the choice volcano (beautiful huge... More

Fabulous dinner. Great setting with outdoor seating on the canal. Appetizers of asparagus, samosas and Sichuan beef were a great start, then entre of Rack of Lamb blew us away. Skin was as crispy as the best Peking Duck, inside was pink and tender, sauce was perfect and Malbec on the wine list was a great accompaniment. Would go back... More
