Albert’s Restaurant & Bar

Albert's Restaurant & Bar

Fresh off the bat of another peculiar Cold Feet series set in the suburb, Didsbury has been given yet another shot in the arm, with the relaunch of the white knight, Albert’s Restaurant & Bar, on Barlow Moor Road.

Opening in March 2019, this impossibly white building is an iconic feature in Didsbury and with its inviting outside seating area and grand interior, Albert’s never fails to tease the angry drivers waiting to move at the worst traffic lights in Manchester. If the recent refurb is anything to go by, the urge to ditch the Palatine Road palaver, pull over and pop in for light lunch might prove too irresistible.

The revamped menu is a peckish person’s dream, with a staggering array of goodies to choose from. If you’re in the market for posh-looking light-bites to chomp on while you chat Love Island with Susan and Janine, there’s a great lunch offering two courses for £14.50. Albert’s got his own Chicken Caesar Salad and there’s a daily fish dish competing with some interesting stone baked pizzas… enticing desserts too.

The A La Carte offering is loaded with Instagram-friendly proteins, from luscious salads to a hard-hitting grill

If you’re taking Lulu into Didsbury for date night, the A La Carte offering is loaded with Instagram-friendly proteins, from luscious salads to a hard-hitting grill, which boasts a 30oz tomahawk steak. But there’s a pretty strong seafood offering too, with sea bass, lobster, king prawn mussels, haddock, crab, oysters, salmon, octopus and monkfish to choose from… wow that’s our fishy SEO sorted.

For the more unique diners, Albert’s has a completely separate gluten free menu and one for the vegans too. It’s a one size catch all kind of place and the bar is a little bigger than the Shed he owns in Castlefield and it looks great. If there’s enough staff on to cater for queues, Albert’s Didsbury is on to a winner.

The exterior seating is a summer must, with panoramic views of Barlow Moor Road

The interior is classic stuff, with eloquent mirrors letting the tables and gregarious planting breathe a little. It feels big. If you’re fresh out of the gym and joining Jamal and Bonesy for a beer or three of a Thursday evening, the exterior seating is a summer must, with panoramic views of Barlow Moor Road and its leafy décor to take in.

It’s a pretty pricey bit of spring cleaning for Albert’s, but nothing beats bold refresh and for a spot in Didsbury that’s always going to attract attention, this is a very welcome upgrade.
