We turned up 15 minutes early for our 9pm table on a busy Saturday night and expected the usual hanging around that goes with being early…but no … we were told our table was just being prepared and by the time our coats had been hung up it was ready and we were seated.
The staff were both cheerful and efficient – a delightful but sadly rare combination. We were told of the specials of the day, both drinks and food, before we ordered, as it should be. The waitress advised that the pre-dinner Negroni was good – as she had tried it ! I did as well, and she was well right !
When we ordered we were advised that one of the specials was down to the last 4 but they hoped they would be able to serve it. They indeed did, but how nice to be advised at the point of ordering rather than half an hour later. It shows the staff know what they are doing.
The food was good and the 3 courses served at timely intervals. The free added bonus was the people watching which gave all four of us a lot of entertainment.
So glad we chose the Shed and will definitely be back the next time we are in Manc.
