Great food and venue! Considering how busy they were with it being the last night before lockdown, the service was as quick as ever and also as faultless as ever! Look forward to going back again post-lockdown 2.0!

Once we got our heads around ordering through the camera with a QR code everything was amazing as usual. Food tastes out of this world, cocktails beautiful and fresh beer. Thanks for a last meal before lock down 😘

I took my son for a half term treat and it certainly didn’t disappoint. He had the gremlin burger and I had the crack shack - both were equally delicious and he actually rated it the best burger he had ever had. (He wasn’t wrong) Really easy to use the app at the table to order - we will definitely be back thank you!

Our meal had to be returned 3 times due to incorrect order.
The Burgers was cold in middle & overpowered by over excessive sauce.
Making the bun really soggy & disgusting to eat especially cold.

We went during the day and got the Lunch Deal that’s currently going on, a burger, drink and fries for £12.50(we both got bacon bacon fries though for the extra 50p), it was super quiet (which I love at times like these) and the food was pretty quick and tasted amazing! Staff were super friendly aswell! Can’t wait to go back!

Loved going back to Almost Famous. The new online ordering system is great, please keep this! The food was wonderful as usual. Staff were friendly and efficient. Covid measures were great and could see staff actively following these. Only thing was that the place was looking a bit worse for wear, I know they go for the grunge look however parts of the toilet were broken and paint rubbed off walls, stairwells looked like they hadn't been cleaned since lockdown.

Not all but one specific waitress was highly rude. Gave me a receipt with nothing printed on it so asked for another printed correctly but she muttered under her breath and said she couldn’t do it. I then asked for the manager and she magically appeared the receipt I asked for. I wouldn’t mind but it was a refund receipt and the money wasn’t in in bank yet so wanted proof just in case. However food was lovely.

Really enjoyed the food, huge portions and got the 12.50 lunch deal which included a drink and fries which were a mix of normal and sweet potato. Would go again and recommend.
