Service was fairly poor; it was an effort to get any attention from the waiting staff - also a very long wait before food arrived, with the main course... More

Another wonderful late lunch at my favourite place. Lunch menu fab, staff wonderful, friendly and helpful. Sun was shining so ate outside, Dukes next door was full to the brim, so bouncers on duty. Try the salted caramel martini, sublime. Heres to the next time.

For the price, this was nothing special. The food was okay, the service was meh and it took a very long time to get anything from the staff. All round is was okay.. but nothing to write home about.

Absolutely gorgeous food and perfect for a birthday meal which was the reason we visited. James B was our waiter for the evening and he was brilliant. Very friendly and attentive and seemed to really enjoy his job which can be quite rare! The service was quick but not rushed and we felt like we were really taken care of.... More

Visited Albert's Shed today (Sunday). It was difficult to get through to the restaurant to make a reservation so decided to risk it. The sun was shining over Manchester and the crowds were out, this said we did manage to get a table outside at Albert's Shed. Drinks ordered, we were given adequate time to review the menu. Being a... More

Having a lazy day in Manchester and sun was beating down so had to have a think of where we could go for a drink and a chill. We wanted somewhere we could sit outside in the sun.
