Poor service bar service,
Poor staff service,
Poor table service,
Poor service non-stop..
sat at the bar area waited for a already pre-booked table, ordered a bottle of LP rosè champagne to be given dirty glasses and expected to pour your own drinks at £100 a bottle not the best of starts then having to carry a champagne bucket and glasses to your table without the help of a member of staff was very disappointing.
Ordered bruschetta starter which came with bland unripe tomatoes,
Then for the main course a roast dinner because there was nothing else available on the already limited menu,
£15 for cheap cuts of meat, roast potatoes, microwaved mash, carrots, runner beans and solid Yorkshire pudding. Asked a member of staff if they had any horseradish which he replied that he would go and ask for me.. he never returned to my table to give me a answer.
Desert was just about bearable.
Very disappointing when a brand has a very high reputation but the staff cannot keep to a high level of service.
Now my 2nd visit as the first visit wasn’t the best but thought it would maybe be teething problems as the place had only just opened.. seems the teething problems are still persisting!
Won’t be attending again!

Would just like to say that our server for the evening Caroline, is a credit to your company. She went above and beyond for us after what must have been a very busy reopening day. She handled two small complaints over food quality and a pricing error on the receipt with such professionalism it should be applauded. Nothing was too much for her and the service we received reflected that.

I will say that the music was a touch too loud in the venue, usually it would not have been an issue but with the use of face masks now in the establishment makes it sometimes harder to hear servers when being spoken too.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my first meal out of lockdown. And it was made all the better for Caroline’s presence in the evening.

Great place and excellent food but drinks a bit pricey.

Didn't like the holding room we were put into prior to our table being ready, lots of rowdy youngsters sat on two very big tables, too noisy for us and not a great advertisement for covid distancing, however we were only in there for 5 or so minutes and we kept our distance, hence the 5 stars.

We had an excellent meal, we were treated to good service though the restaurant was only half full because of the virus outbreak, we celebrated our wedding anniversary so were pleased they were still open. We will definitely book again.

The service we received was extremely poor the restaurant was quiet yet we had to wait 10 mins for a waitress to bring side plates for our starter . Our plates aren’t cleared away in good time and we had to wait ages for our bill. The food as always was fabulous so my Birthday meal wasn’t spoilt completely.

We really enjoyed the experience, the food and service was very good. The food was warn but not hot. The price of food was reasonable but the cost of drinks made the cost of the experience a little expensive. Having said that, we would go again.

Easy to book. Nice place with friendly staff. Food was very average for the price paid. Drinks were quite expensive. The biggest let down is the noise volume inside. Acoustics just made it sound like everyone was talking at the tops of their voices, which was a bit unbearable at times. If you can get past this it’s not a bad place but it’s definitely not a quite romantic night out.

I had heard different reviews about Albert's restaurant at Standish so decided to try for my self, I have to say the souroundings were very smart but I have to say that the whole experience was just OK, the food was all right nothing special the ambiance in the restaurant was like a canteen the noise was incredible, there's no way you can have a romantic meal, was it value for money I'd say for a special occasion yes, for every day no, I'm glad I went would I rush back no.

Great night, asked for champagne on table and balloons as it was our daughters 21st. All set out beautifully. Food and service was spot on. I would request not to be sat near the door when I go again as it was a little draught when the door opened later at night. Overall really pleased and will return.

Food was excellent as always. Slightly disappointed that the wine we chose ( by the glass) was unavailable and then the starter I chose was sold out. Not what we would have expected. This was at 12.30 on a Friday lunchtime. Someone must have really underestimated the demand. Otherwise we had no complaints.
