We have had plenty of good meals in the albert. Every time we go there we are greeted by friendly staff and served fantastic food and drink. We therefore decided that having such a great open plan room upstairs that it would be a perfect place to hold 'welcome party' for our wedding guests. After my fiance asking 'charlie' (one of the management team) whether it would be possible to have the entire upstairs ourselves, we were delighted when she said yes. The Albert was so helpful and went along with anything we wanted (which was a request for a hot buffet of chilli, hotpot, chips, salad etc). It must be noted that this is not something from the menu and something that the chef simply adapted to after we requested it. The staff were happy and enthusiastic to do anything we suggested. When we turned up we were amazed to find that they had decorated the entire room with tasteful balloon displays, candles and tablecloths. In short the entire evening was a huge success and the staff bent over backwards to do anything they could to help our guests (even with a busy pub to attend to downstairs). I can't speak highly enough of everybody involved and it really did make our wedding that much more memorable. Looking forward to our next delicious visit in the near future !!!

Both my girlfriend and I had two courses each which came to £33.60. Food was nice and the portions were plentiful!

Drink price is, what we found out after going other places, normal for the area.

Nice, chilled out pub/restaurant with polite staff.

Came here over a busy Easter weekend. The staff were friendly even though very busy. We sat upstairs which felt calmer than the bar below. The portion sizes here are fantastic, a good choice on the menu and we had starters and mains which we found absolutely delicious. Definitely recommended.

A very nice busy lakes pub. Top quality traditional pub food. Visited 3times in 3days but only ate once other times for drinks only. We only are the once because there was other places we wanted to try but will definetly visit again on our next visit to lakes. My steak was just how I ordered it my wife loved her salmon. Very good service even though very busy which is a good sign they have good staff and are organised.
