Recently had a meal at Albert's Shed, and although the food was nice, I was expecting more. We both ordered steaks, which were cooked how we asked, but it seemed the steaks had been cooked from frozen as there was no blood that ran from the meat. They still tasted good but we've definitely had better. I'm surprised to read... More

Visited this restaurant 16th October having read up previous reviews. Was staying in Manchester overnight for business. While this restaurant is not right in the centre of the city it was in a good area, next to the canal. The restaurant was very busy for a thursday night, but our service was still personal. I had the rabbit gnocchi which... More

There were 3 choices of each course and all very different, including sea bass and seafood risotto, roast beef dinner, which was quite different in flavour - absolutely delicious. The service was excellent... More

Dined here on Thursday evening last week, as part of a group of six, and enjoyed a very good meal indeed. Started with the scallops served with crispy bacon and celeriac cream; the scallops were so sweet and juicy, perfectly complemented by the crisp, salty bacon. The celeriac cream was very good too, and not too strong in flavour. My... More

Met up with friends last Friday and enjoyed good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Service was excellent and good value with the "before 6pm" lunch menu. Had a bottle of Temperanillo which was a bit 'thin' but followed that with an excellent Merlot.

Albert's Shed has wonderful food combined with being in one of the nicest areas of Manchester city centre facing the canal. I have dined there several times and every time has been brilliant. The service is always excellent, as is the food. Great atmosphere too! I highly recommend this place!
