“Charming City Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

My husband I came to Manchester on business and I spent the day walking around all of downtown Manchester. This lovely old square is the heart of the city, with magnificent old pubs and buildings. I was really impressed with how clean the entire city was, unlike my home town in Texas, which can't seem to get a handle on trash. I felt completely safe wandering about all day on my own and returned to the square several times just to catch my breath.

“Albert Square Manchester”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Albert Square is a busy little place with usually something going on. When I went it was a road safety display by GMP and other agencies. The square..being central..is handy for the rest of the city.

“a game of 2 halves”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Dinner on Saturday evening was very good despite the restaurant being pretty busy; well-cooked food including good local meat; our waitress was excellent and made good recommendations on the wine front. Breakfast the next day was another story as they seemed short staffed and preoccupied with an influx of minor celebs who were taking part in the Sport Relief run around the city centre. Waited too long to be served and when it came the scrambled eggs were rubbery and the full English had clearly been sitting around being kept warm for some time. Excellent exhibition of 2 local artists work on display made the wait a little more palatable...

“You really will be spoiled for choice . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Tourists will love Albert Square for it's historical and magnificent Manchester Town Hall. And that's not all, there are countless contemporary bars, great old pubs with lots of Mancunian history, and restaurants of the world in this great Square - whatever your palette desires you're bound to find something mouth watering and satiating in Manchester's Albert Square.
