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.

Usually love almost famous, but this time took over 20 mins to get our drinks after ordering. Also, think sauces may have been changed- we had bacon bacon fries and the taste was far richer and stronger than usual. In the end we both just left them as the richness was too much.
Burger was lovely, perfectly cooked.
Booked table and was seated straight away

The food was delicious. I would say that the service is slower due to now ordering online. The online order service is very long winded especially when you just want to order a drink it’s annoying. It would be better if your details where saved or if you can use Apple Pay as you have to enter your details every time to place an order. Other than that though had a great time 👌🏼

Food was nice. However, Felt the App ordering takes away from the dining experience and I would also like the option to have paper menus as only having menu via the website/app makes it an antisocial event with everyone sat there on their phones. Also made it impossible to split the bill otherwise if ordered individually may have arrived at different times. Felt there was a lack of interaction with servers once seated left to your own devices and had to ask for napkins. It was not easy to customise food choices from the app ordering only with added notes to the item but left uncertain if they would be noticed by the kitchen - thankfully they were but added anxiety. Whilst the restaurant is clearly taking appropriate steps to ensure safety of the dinners I probably wouldn’t return to this venue until covid measures are relaxed as felt like an overpriced fast food experience rather than a nice restaurant experience, which is a shame being our first time visiting.

Service wasn’t the best. Waited 20 minutes for drinks, around 35 minutes for food and wasn’t given cutlery with the food which we had to wait a further 5 minutes for. Also asked for condiments which was just ignored.

Food was very good though, so maybe just understaffed/new staff with COVID.

Food is the best food ever as always
Bit of a headache paying online with new restrictions as is a long process to order more drinks for example
Very loud

I visited here over the weekend and I wasn't too impressed. We got seated and had a look at the menu which was on the app which wasn't great, the drinks they had behind the bar we wasn't allowed due to them not being on the app:/there was hardly any drinks to choose from which was frustrating. The toilets were horrible there was toilet roll everywhere they just didn't look like they had been cleaned atall. Over all I wasn't happy with the experience here.
