Everybody loves a bit of Albert’s Schloss; the now Manchester institution of good times and tank beer, that since its launch in our city has also blossomed in major cities across the land. A few months back, a friend in Birmingham got a bit giddy when telling me about a great new place in town next to his office. I felt more than a tad smug when telling him to catch up, and that Manchester got the original one so had beaten Brum to the punch by a fair few years on this one. Anyway.
Hot on the heels of our Christmas trip to Munich last week, we were keen to get an extended taste of Germany, so jumped at an invitation to sample the new Albert’s Schloss breakfast menu, with much festive cheer.
As ever, no matter which time of day or night you visit, it’s a stunning space with that open fire, palatial ceilings and beer tanks greeting you on entry. It’s just a lovely place to be and gets you right into the Alpine mood. We were promptly sat down in a cosy corner by our lovely server.
