Albert’s Didsbury restaurant reveals major refurbishment plans for new year


Popular neighbourhood restaurant Albert’s in West Didsbury is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a major revamp.

They have revealed plans for a £500,000 refurbishment to start once the hectic festive period is over.

The restaurant will close from 2nd January and reopen late March with a brand new and updated look and feel both inside and out.

The interior of the restaurant will be transformed by award-winning Manchester-based interior designers, Space Invader Design. A new colour scheme and interior style will create a more up to date, relaxed feel using a muted, earthy palette with more greenery both inside and out the restaurant.

There will be entirely new furniture throughout the restaurant and bar, plus new artwork, lighting and styling.

Albert’s drinks offering and area is set to be transformed into a new destination bar for the neighbourhood with a bigger bar, a whole new bar seating area, a more extensive local and craft beer selection and an updated seasonal, signature cocktail collection.

The food menu at Albert’s will see house signature dishes all staying put – from home-made Lancashire cheese and onion pie and Albert’s fish and chips, to the Albert’s stone baked pizza menu and Malayan chicken.

Guests will be able to book party tables at Albert’s Bar just to enjoy the new drinks, whilst a revamped bar menu will provide a social, grazing accompaniment to the party table experience.

The terrace will also be refreshed to reveal a cleverly designed outdoor space ready for those sunny afternoons in Didsbury. Expect a new suburban oasis on Barlow Moor Road.

The exact re-opening date will be announced soon.
