Very nice food and reasonably priced, lunch time menu is better value. Service a little slow had to ask for drinks perhaps a little understaffed. Nice location.

Restaurant was fairly busy but we were served very promptly with drinks followed by food order. I ordered Malaysian chicken for main course which I have ordered before at Worsley - it was good but not quite as nice as I remembered. Will try something different next time. Overall it was a very pleasant evening spent with friends.

Food was mediocre but expensive. Took my son for a meal, my sea bass was ok but the bacon in the crushed potatoes was chewy and unpleasant.

Lack of vegetarian options on lunch menu. Had halloumi and falafel salad. 4 tiny falafel and 4 slices of halloumi and small handful of over dressed salad leaves was not good value for money. Lovely setting and very attentive staff made it a pleasant lunch. Not going to rush back unfortunately.

Four of us came for an evening meal on Tuesday 3rd Aug at 19.15pm. We had a welcome greeting on arrival and were asked to sit in the bar until our table was ready. We liked this as it was comfortable and not overcrowded, despite it being busy for a Tuesday. The temperature throughout was good as well, even though it was a warm evening outside.

We had to order our drinks at the bar, but it was unclear whether it was table service or not. There was a sign on the table saying to order the drinks on the app, but we were out for an evening and didn't want to be fussing with downloading the app and work out how to use it. We were brought to our dining table before the drinks arrived, but the waitress did find us to bring them over.

We sat on Andrei's station and he gave us such a warm welcome. The service throughout was brilliant and you could see that he is a professional. A small example of this is when we asked for another knife and he brought it on a plate with napkin, rather just in his hand. We will definitely ask to sit on his station the next time we come. All of the staff we came into contact with were pleasant and polite.

Two of us had 3 courses and 2 had 2 courses. The food was cooked really well and delicious. We all had different items and everything was delicious. My favorite dessert by far was the peach cobbler. How does the chef make the crumble topping so big and crunchy!

It is so good to have a restaurant of this caliber in the area because there are loads of pubs but not many like this. You are made to feel welcome and special and that is worth the money. I love that they use table clothes with clean silver condiments and a table decoration on the table. Their napkins are thicker too, unlike in many other establishments. Its the small things that make the difference.

Although the website says they allow 2.15hrs for a table of 4, we were not hurried and had a wonderful evening. The toilets were clean and well maintained too.

Enjoyed lunch at Albert’s, meeting up with a college friend after 30 + years. The lunchtime special is good value and we were sitting outside on a lovely sunny day. We did not feel rushed at all and the service was very good.

Seated extremely close to next table shoulders almost touching. I know social distancing no longer compulsory but woul have expected more consideration. Almost 1 hour from being seated to main course arriving staff clearly under huge pressure
The meals were fine but nothing special
Would not be in a hurry to return Overall a disappointing experience

I had the sea bass from the lunch menu, it was nice but I thought the portion was a bit small in comparison with the amount of sweet potato fries. However, the Eton Mess dessert was lovely.

Great food, great drinks - quality meal overall, if I was being really critical I'd say people are seated too close together (speaking from being sat indoors) - it wasn't necessarily a problem for us but I can imagine this being uncomfortable in some situations!

Service was great. Overpriced food for what you got but very clean place to dine and lovely set out.
I got the £23 steak. Wasn't cooked to my order preference and definitely not worth £23. Ive had better for much less.

I booked a table for 12 people and 8 initially, later 9, showed up on the day. Despite the terms and conditions saying that no shows MAY be charged £10 I was automatically charged £40 for what I was later told the 4 no shows. After spending £240 on food and drink I find this hard to stomach and it completely ruined an otherwise good experience. Bear this in mind when booking at this place. I, along with my other diners, will never visit Albert’s again after this experience. You have just lost out on many future customers and we will not hesitate to spread the word in Standish.

Entry was great and the seating was quick. The menus were lovely with lots of choice for both adults and children. Our waitress was inexperienced so didn’t offer a great service but it was to the best of her ability. The food came quick and was extremely tasty.

Part way through our meal somebody was sat next to us which was extremely uncomfortable as their was no glass between us only a small panel which meant myself and my little boy were sat as close to them as we are everybody else on our table. We found this extremely uncomfortable and wouldn’t book again at the moment for that reason. Other tables did have glass panels between them and the other table so not sure when these others didn’t. Even the booths had glass panels so not sure why we had to be sat that close.

When we asked for the bill it was just thrown into the table without a cover or an acknowledgement.

Great food shame about lots of other things.

Sorry but I simply did not get Alberts, too close to others not private at all, the tables were way too close! And we were made to wait until our booked time even though I could see lots of empty tables ( we were ten minutes early!)
The food was good but overpriced and the delivery was a little slow?
Would I recommend Alberts simply no!! Unfortunately it’s not for me I’m not a lover of love island but if you are maybe then it’s for you!!!!

Food was superb, came specifically for roast dinner. It is a bit on the expensive side, particularly for drinks. Great atmosphere but the table we were on was really close to the one next to us felt a little uncomfortable

The service was very poor indeed - we went for our wedding anniversary waited 45mins between starter and main had to ask for the desert menu. Staff too took up with serving large tables of 6 plus, running up and down forgetting the table of 2 which is just as important to the restaurant! Distance between our table and the next was a little close for my liking.
It will be a long time before we visit again.

Fantastic food, great atmosphere. It was the first time of going out for a meal for a year ,because of covid and being high risk being a Type 1 diabetic, it all felt fine being on an outside table but I was shocked the staff don’t wear masks or visors to protect themselves as well as the public, I am still wearing a mask and visor in my job.
Will definitely be back. Thank you. X

This was our first time. The food was ok. The cheese board is probably the worst one we have had fir £12. Two pieces of cheese and not enough crackers !
No Grapes or anything. The selection was poor.
Won’t rush back sorry.
