We wanted to find somewhere in Manchester where we could celebrate our daughter's and her boyfriend's achievements in getting their degrees. We were a party of 7 and we found the food, service, and the little touch of giving both graduates a complementary glass of Prosecco all excellent. I'm a serious cook as is our daughter's BF's mother and we... More

Long time Albert's Shed regulars. This was worse than the still deep frozen strawberries in the dessert. Fish and chips AKA meals on wheels. I think they're over reaching themselves with the volume of customers(victims of their own success?). It's hit and miss lately especially when it's busy. There are better alternatives now. Have a drink in the courtyard (... More

My girlfriend and I visited Albert's Shed for the first time last week and were certainly not disappointed. We both manage venues in the service industry so we value friendly and accommodating staff very highly. Stephanie was absolutely perfect; personal, happy, accommodating, and knowledgeable of the menu. We ordered from the Sunday set menu (rabbit gnocchi, beef roast and an... More

I have been here several times and had some lovely meals. The service is excellent although I was kept waiting in the bar for a table that I had booked well in advance. The menu offers lots of choice and the meal was very tasty. A lovely place for a special occasion

What a great evening we had at Alberts in Castlefield. We arrived early but were shown straight to our table. The menu is excellent, not your usual run of the mill. Our food was delicious, the service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and didn't mind us asking for a breather between courses.

This canal side is a perfect setting for a romantic meal or a catch up with friends. The service is polite and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff! I enjoyed an excellent pea and pancetta spaghetti to start followed by a superb salami and chilli pizza. The red wine was very good and the... More

We ate here on a recent trip to Manchester. The great reviews on tripadvisor are spot on. It's close to the centre of town and the restaurant inside and outside by the canal is really nice. The lunchtime menu was great value and every course delicious. We both said our main courses were the best roast dinners we have had.... More
