Dirty plates and dry beef!

ACTUALLY RATING 2.8 27/2/15 Looking at this restaurant on here it was a sure thing for me and my partner. Oh how we were disappointed. Looks on the outside and inside were good.

Easy to book, nice welcome when we arrived. The service was a bit slow at first, but then picked up. Our drinks were excellent and the starter was just the right size. The rest of the meal proved a delight. Our food was excellently cooked and the flavours were really excellent. Staff were very helpful and the atmosphere was very... More

I have visited Alberts for over five years and always enjoyed the food and service. My husband and I visited one Sunday at the start of February and chose Sunday dinner. The starters, wine and deserts were lovely as usual but the Sunday dinner was disappointing, mainly because the gravy was so over salted and the potatoes were not cooked... More

Enjoyed a meal at Alberts on Sunday night I had the rabbit knocchi to start and sirloin with mushroom sauce and the mrs had the duck to start with taragon chicken for main, both were very good. Staff were all very friendly and attentive only issue was how far the toilet is but not major.

We visited Albert's Shed for the first time on Valentine's Day evening, and we were really pleased with our choice of restaurant. They were fully booked and it was clear that the team was very organised - in fact our only fault of the service was that it was perhaps a little too regimented to keep the tables turning over...

Visited Alberts shed last night for my birthday treat with my husband. The staff work very hard and are very polite, service was also quick - our waiter Ben was lovely and very attentive to us. We had a few issues, dont think these need to be mentioned on here as they were rectified to our satisfaction on the evening.... More

Once again another lovely meal in a comfortable environment. A friend we took for the first time said she didn't want the meal to end as it was so tasty! Excellent value and lots of choice. Full marks Albert's Shed.

Visited early on a Saturday evening. The food was all great, tasty and well presented. Would have scored a 5 if they hadn't run out of a number of things so early in the evening. Not cheap but good value.

The restaurant is not a shed it is in fact a very pleasant modern building. It was during the week when we went but the staff were excellent from taking our coats to serving the food . The food was delicious and we will be going again.
