Called in on our way home. Opted for the Sunday lunch menu of beef and red wine gravy. The vegetables were hot and the meal was lovely. What let it down though, was the butter dish was pre used and should of been washed before fresh butter was put on it. The coffee was also Luke warm and my cup... More

We dined at this restaurant last night, We found the food to be well cooked and nicely presented. As you would expect the service was a little slower bearing in mind the food was cooked from scratch. We felt that is was good value for money and the ambience was great. Our only little moan was that the tables were... More

This was the second weekend in a row that we dined at Albertos - and just as good as the week before. Great menu selection and everything was swiftly and freshly cooked. Highlights were the risotto and cheese starters and the chicken and veal dishes with cream sauces. Great tiramisu for desert. Service was efficient and relaxed and it we... More

Had an enjoyable evening out here. The staff were very friendly and the menu choice varied. On the down side the waiting staff were forgetful eg when asked for a jug of water, and one of the starters briefly went missing. Two of us had the starter of black pudding with poached eggs. They tasted fine but would have been... More

Food wasn't so good. Very salty and a bit greasy. Service was rather slow. Nice place to sit, and a good buzz to the restaurant, but I was a bit disappointed.

Such a lovely restaurant. Really friendly staff, busy atmosphere, tasty food. Went with a friend and we were well looked after, and we didn't feel rushed or like we were expected to leave as soon as we had finished. Would definitely go again.

The waiter who took our order was so rude (to be charitable, probably because of the inadequacy of his English) that, if we had not been in a group, we would have left then. The second waiter brought starters but disappeared so quickly that he didn't notice we had no cutlery, nor had we time to tell him. Fortunately there... More

Took some friends who had been kind to us but felt that we were not being kind to them. One of the starters was Black pudding not very authentic. We placed our order, after waiting a considerable time three received their starters and one of us was told that they had run out of the fish starter, consequently one of... More

Surprised to see two bad reviews prior to writing this... Had liver with chutney for starter; best starter I have had for a long time. My partner had snails, not my choice but did try one and won't be ordering snails in future but he liked them. Main course ordered was King Prawns with saffron rice, very tasty. Partner had... More

Food was over cooked and i waited quite sometime for the food. Atmosphere was poor. Setting wasn't fantasic although it has improved a little in recent times. Over all given the whole experience i dont think i could recommend this restaurant
