I've come here a few times over the years for dinners and special occasions (birthdays) and have always been pleased with the food. My husband recently threw me a surprise bday lunch with my family (over 20 people) and the food was excellent yet again! Service was great, prompt and friendly and nothing was too much of a bother for... More

Went with 5 friends, overall the service and meal was okay but we complained about two starters. Both the sardines and belly pork were absolutely tiny portions. And for around £6.50 each, a bit of a joke. Wont rush to go back!

Visited after a busy shopping Saturday in Manchester Centre, wanted somewhere away from, but within walking distance of, a very crowded Spinningfields, Alberts Shed was recommended by friends as restuarant had added items to the summer season menu which took our fancy. We were not disappointed, food was good, wine list and prices were good, staff were attentive despite it... More

We visited Albert's for our anniversary while we spent the weekend in Manchester. The food was excellent and the portions were mighty! My husband had the lamb chop to start and sea bass for main, I had the fish cakes to start and the venison for main. We couldn't fault it, the staff were great and answered our constant questions...

Myself and my partner took my partner's parents for dinner today in celebration of us becoming engaged. On hearing this news, the staff at Alberts shed could not have made a bigger fuss of us and this made our day even more special. All the food we ordered was absolutely out of this world and our server, Matthew was brilliant... More

I had dinner at Albert's Shed, which is right by the canal in Castlefield. It's a nice lively area. I had the fish of the day which was a panfried seabass with veggies. My cousin had the cheese and onion tart and loved it. We were both happy with our meals. Their toilets are a disaster though. You need to... More

Came here with a large family group. We ordered off the lunch special menu (2 courses for £12) which is a bargain itself l, especially for a Saturday afternoon. Food arrived promptly - all meals were fantastic. Service throughout was spot on - we will definitely be returning soon!

Went there for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. We managed to get a table outside on a warm evening and the atmosphere was great with Dukes just behind us. It was busy but the service was like a well oiled machine and the staff, particularly Mario, were friendly and efficient. The food was excellent and well presented and... More
