Overall the restaurant was very nice, very cramped though, I’m glad the table next to us wasn’t being used while we were there as it would of been uncomfortable. The staff were kept very busy and the quality of the food was great. The only downside was 4 women sat behind us and resembled 4 hyenas, not the restaurants fault but I would of appreciated it if they had moved to the bar area to continue screeching at other so the rest of us could eat in peace!! I would return as the food and staff were lovely. Not overpriced either. 😊

Enjoyed the food, although the sauce in the prawn linguine was a little too rich and required more seasoning for our tastes.
Staff were brilliant, friendly and attentive.
We didn’t eat dessert as the selection is a bit limited but all taken into account we will dine there again.

Amazing service! Really attentive and ensured we had everything we needed. Great gin and wine selection! Food was average. Risotto lacked flavour and seems under cooked. Calamari too dry and over seasoned. Chicken was dry. Sea bass was lovely, but again lacked flavour.

Service was really positive but getting the food was really slow. Cheesecake was not a cheesecake it was more like a mousse in a glass.

I believe the prices have increased & the option of food to choose from has descreased.

As always we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Great food and service. Our only negative comment is about the summer berry pudding which seemed to be inside out! In my experience it is a bread ‘crust’ with berries inside, but this was the other way round and there was too much bread; delicious in parts but not good value.

Lovely venue, helpful staff, reasonable prices and amazing food. Best Sunday lunch I’ve had in ages. Will be coming again soon. Also, visited previously and they were so helpful with my child’s allergies, going above and beyond to prepare a suitable meal from scratch and it was delicious.

The menu needs to be clearer for people with special dietary requirements. I went for dinner with my friend who is vegan, she chose an option which stated V, VE next to it so we presumed it was suitable for both vegetarians & vegans. There was no mention of of any dairy items to prevent this being vegan and no instruction to request either/or nor did the waitress ask if she wanted it as a vegetarian or vegan option. When the dish arrived it had mayonnaise (which wasn't on the menu) and no avocado as advertised. We queried this and were told that you have to specify which option you would like, the meal was returned and the waitress apologised and the vegan version was then prepared & we were told this meal would be taken off the bill. When the bill arrived only 50% had been taken off so I queried this & the supervisor/manageress said they had given us a 50% discount I told her our waitress said it was meant to be coming off the bill completely. She then went & spoke to the waitress and immediately returned to the till and printed a new receipt with the full cost of the meal taken off. The new bill was just put on our table quite rudely as she was clearly irritated and she just walked off giving no apology. Regardless of whether the waitress was not allowed to offer what she did that was not our fault. The supervisor was unprofessional & rude, and as we were leaving made us feel uncomfortable as it was clear she was annoyed, no bye or thank you as we walked past the till towards the door. The waitresses were friendly and helpful but the menu needs to be clearer & they need to have a better understanding of it.

I have eaten at the Almond a number of time with friends.The staff are lovely and attentive and home cooked food is 5 star. I had salt and pepper chicken with the chunkyest chips ever and the chocolate fudge cake is the best iv ever tasted to die for, the Sponge is so light and sweet.Wouldn’t go anywhere else. Love the Almond.

This is our third visit in less than a month. Every meal has been outstanding. I have now just discovered the breakfast menu and can’t wait to try some of the items
