£28,000 - £32,000 a year

We are a fast growing family company set on expanding the Alberts across the North of England. We are really excited about our Standish site and are looking forward to bringing our award winning restaurant and bar to the people of Standish and beyond.

When the site opens in June, the 2 acre site will comprise a brand new purpose built 160 cover restaurant with external dining space for 80. The bar, which will be open to non-diners, will also feature its own outside area.
