WE OPENED OUR FIRST RESTAURANT
IN CASTLEFIELD, MANCHESTER IN 2004
WITH A CLEAR AIM:
To deliver quality food to local customers at a reasonable price in a sharp,
modern space with friendly, unpretentious service. We have pursued that
goal ever since and it has earned us many loyal customers. Our menu is
probably classed as British with some additional favourites from Italy
and around the globe.
We opened our second site in 2008 in West Didsbury which proved
just as popular as our original site. In 2013, after a lot of searching,
we decided to bring albert’s to the good people of Worsley and
Swinton and hope that it is as popular as our other sites!
UNCLE ALBERT AND HIS TOOL SHED…
We are unashamedly a family business. Albert is the uncle of the owner,
Jim Ramsbottom, and led the conversion of Dukes 92 in the early 90’s
from the original canalside stable block to the Manchester food and
drink institution it is today.
Albert used to store his tools in the shed where they stayed until the plans
for Albert’s Shed were formed. He agreed to move out of the shed to make
way for the restaurant on the condition that we named the restaurant after
his beloved shed! We have no such excuse for this restaurant, but we
couldn’ t think of a better name. So Albert lives on…and why not?
