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, npretentious 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 have one of the best locations in Didsbury on Barlow Moor Road between West Didsbury and Didsbury village. With one of the best alfresco dining spaces anywhere around.
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?
