Our review:

Down in the cobbled streets of Castlefield next to Dukes 92 lies Albert’s Shed. Bizarre names aside for what is a fairly upmarket restaurant, a lot of fuss has been made over this place so we had great expectations.

The layout is modern, polished and the staff were very friendly. We ordered the Spanish Torres white wine which was a cracker and not something you find on that many menus so bonus points there. The food however was disappointing. Both the bruschetta and scallop starters were adequate, just, but the former suffered from being bland. We both opted for the steak mains with my partners fillet with peppercorn sauce perfectly okay but my sirloin cut with wild mushroom, baby onion and red wine jus was a real let down. The beef was a prime cut no bother there but the sauce was highly disappointing and almost tasted like it came from a bottle.

Deserts – sticky toffee pudding and chocolate pot – were again decent but not great and overall for a place with a big reputation and a mid-to-top-end price range we felt a bit let down. As we’ve only been once, we’d give Albert’s Shed a second chance.

Myself and 9 friends dined here at the weekend. We sat outsite and it was lovely...the weather was awful but the heaters outside kept us nice and toastie! The food was excellent none of us had one complaint...i ordered sea bass and its the best ive had by far and you get a good size portion. Wine was lovely...great place would recommend to anyone!
