Burgers
Almost Famous burgers were born from a need for a super juicy dripping down your arms no nonsense burger – 100% prime cuts of beef, pillowy soft charred bun, melty cheese and creamy tangy sauces. We smash all these elements together to create the burgers we’ve been known for since day one.

For larger bookings (8+), please email us on gn@almostfamousburgers.com.

Food took a while to come but it was a busy night in the restaurant and we were a party of 6 who were happy to have a couple of drinks whilst we waited. Staff all very friendly and food was great when it came

The burgers were nice but quite underwhelming on a whole. On the website they looked huge but in person it was quite disappointing. On a whole they weren’t anything special

Excellent burgers and fries were delicious! We had the wings which had too much sauce which made it very overpowering and they were a little over cooked. Took advantage of the 50% off burgers, which made it better. Unfortunately it was very cold in the restaurant and a noise table nearby which put a damper on things. Also, service charge!!! Please take this off, puts me right off a restaurant

Great friendly service. Food was late (don’t think the order was put through) this was recognised by the staff, we didn’t really notice. Waitress took our drinks off the bill as a result.

Bit annoying that the table wasn't ready for the time we'd booked it for, made us late for the plans we'd made after.
Appreciate it was busy because of the offer but staff were more harassed that hospitable.
Food came out quickly, but wasn't particularly hot. Not the best, but certainly not the worst.

You need to make it clear that steak on a burger will be raw and fries come covered in paprika….. not to everyone’s taste! Sadly we will not be returning!

Amazing food as always - not one bad item - lovely venue and the most friendly, helpful staff who were great with our baby daughter and were the first restaurant to, when seating us, explain where the baby changing was and bring her some paper and crayons. Such a great detail and just another reason we love AF!

Visited on a Monday night so was fairly quiet as expected. Food and drinks (mainly drinks) took a while to arrive which wasn't great given how quiet it was.
I got the 'Phoenix' burger which was one of the nicest I've ever had from anywhere and the Bacon fries were top-notch as well.
My girlfriend doesn't really eat red meat and there was only 1 chicken burger which is where I think they could improve as there were ~10 beef burgers.
Definitely worth a visit if you haven't been before and I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Staff made us feel a bit uncomfortable. Other than that everything else was alright… burgers are not as big as they seem on Instagram… which was good for us.

The food was great, couldn’t fault how fast the food came out. Waitress took our order, missed items off but that was fine as the manager made sure we got them soon (also got a drink to compensate). However we order more drinks and the same happened again, the order wasn’t what we ordered. We tried to get someone’s attention but nobody came over at all. However they were quick enough to make sure we paid the bill. Nice enough place but service is none existent
