Best meal I had in Manchester

There is nothing too fault in this restaurant: great food, great service and great atmosphere. The tuna I had was just right and my friends were quite happy too. Would definitely come back if I lived in Manchester.

I visited Albert's Shed in quite a large group of 9 people. The service was very good and, despite the fact I think we absolutely overstayed our welcome (having taken up the table on a busy night for well over three hours), the staff were friendly and helpful. The food here was fantastic, I have to say. In fact, the... More

Went as a group of 7 and the menu provided a superb range that everyone was spoilt for choice. All of the food was fantastic and very good quality. Loved the fact there were a large number of dishes that you could have as starter or main course size. A couple of us went for two starters so we had... More

We went for lunch and had a great time, Gina the waiter was excellent and the food was excellent. We ordered from the lunch menu which was excellent value and the food was cooked perfectly, we even had a cheeky glass of lunch time wine. The children enjoyed the restaurant too, which catered for some fairly interesting variations on one... More

We arrived on a cold February evening to be greeted by a friendly, yet professional staff member who took us straight to our table in the lounge part. We ordered drinks which arrived promptly and looked over the menu. The staff were friendly and attentive. The wine list has a choice for everyone and as usual I settled on the... More

After an afternoon in the Hilton and rushing around trying to find any spare rooms at hotels, we needed a nice filling meal, and that's exactly what we got. As part of my girlfriends birthday treat we came here to eat, I had booked but we ended up arriving slightly late, and this didn't cause a problem as we were... More

Alberts Shed is undoubtedly one of the 'in' places of the moment - and rightly so. We visited on a mid-week lunchtime time and the place was buzzing. The service, quality of the food and the general ambience of Alberts Shed could not be faulted and the value for money was excellent. We chose the set priced lunch menu, which... More
