Food was fabulous, drinks expensive, coke was flat and asked for diet and 100% sure wasn't diet coke and almost certain there was no vodka in the 1st one. Burgers great tho

Overall good experience. Slight niggle that although we booked a table, we were asked to grab a drink at the bar. Being 5 minutes early I didn’t mind but as soon as I ordered a drink the waitress started calling out my name for the table so I then had to send my partner to go for the table whilst I waited for the drinks.
A waitress then came round to ask my partner if she was ready order food yet I hadn’t even sat down. When she came back around to ask again I wasn’t ready as I’d only just sat down. So her to ask a third time we had to wait about 15 minutes which I thought was one extreme to the other !
Then at the end when our table was clear and we didn’t ask for any more drinks no one came to ask if we wanted the bill or anything else, we were just sort of stuck there until grabbing someones attention.
Food was good but could have been slightly bigger portions from what I’ve heard about the place.
The drinks were over priced however - one Pepsi (mostly ice) and one cocktail was £12.50!
Food similar but to be expected I guess.
Overall I’d go back and hopefully get a better roll of the dice where things would hopefully go a bit smoother!
Thanks.

Been before to almost famous and the protions were not as good as they nornally are i took 2 freinds that i had told about almost famous for a long tike and really built it up. It was still good but not what i was used to getting from them. The service that night was alson very slow it took a long time before we got asked for drinks and to take our order then a further 50mins before we received our burgers.

Staff were very friendly and helpful with menu queries. The food arrived but unfortunately it was cold. The cold food was replaced without any problems - we just had to wait another 20 plus minutes for fresh, hot burgers.

I love this restaurant - I've been lots and the food is great. However this is about the 4th time I've been and they've not had lots of menu items. We ended up with our third or fourth choice items because every time we asked for something there was an issue or problem. We ordered 4 drinks and only 3 came so had to chase it up. We then had to wait ages to pay once the bill had been brought. So this is more of an organisation complaint! They stated a busy bank holiday for the lack of options but honestly - how does a business like this not take that in to account? Rant over. I hope they pick up soon because when it's great it's great!

Looks cool, service was slow and they forgot all the condiments on my burger which they subsequently gave for free. The only thing that saved our experience from 1 star was the waffle fries. This place is way better on instagram than real life....

The food was excellent but the service was very slow, waited nearly 20 minutes to just place an order. The music was loud house music, which I don't mind, I just don't think a restaurant is the place for this kind of music, I did not know whether to chat to the person I was with or get up and bust some moves which no one needs to see.

Overall, despite the food being excellent, the experience was just, ok.

We had a delicious meal, couldn’t fault the food. The service was a little slow and our waiter had a bit of an attitude like he didn’t really care. The atmosphere was good though, it was nice to see the place fully booked pretty much. Loved the decor, will definitely be returning.

The food is great but the service is terrible.. it was not the first time I went and each time it's the same story.. the restaurant is full and there are only 2 employees who are dragging their feet and are overwhelmed... this makes service extremely slow and kills the experience every time

overall we enjoyed our meal. however the level of service wasn't great because there simply weren't enough staff there. probably because it was a Sunday (hangover day) and it must be noted that the staff that were there did their best and were very accommodating. the music was fantastic too

i would recommend the food but the serving staff were awful. a few of our group arrived we were asked constantly did we want to order despite them being advised we were waiting on other people to arrive.
there was no conversation with them, not helpful in any way. pudding menu poor, not much choice, not advised by staff we needed to order sides, when we asked about getting some we were told it would be 15/20 mins wait. the food was good but the staff spoilt the visit for us. one of the staff whilst cleaning was on the phone face timing with friends. drinks offers would be good as although good were expensive especially during the week. we asked for one cocktail only to be told that they did not have any of the ingredients to make that particular one, mocktails for kids would also be an idea as we had children with us who look forward to trying new things.

Food was nice however drinks took over 20minutes to come to us. And the food was over an hour long after we ordered. The restaurant was very loud with music and felt like we had to shout to each other at the same table. It may of been better if the restaurant wasn’t so busy but still recommend

Food was great but took a long time. 45 mins for a burger seems a bit ridiculous. I wouldn’t have minded too much if we’d been warned there was a long wait but we had no update from ordering the food to receiving it.

Food was excellent. Wait time was abysmal. Arrived at 7:00 for 7:00 booking. Food arrived at 8:00. Took 20mins for drinks to arrive. Not impressed.

I would recommend Almost Famous if their service were not so poor.

The woman on reception forgot to seat us which meant we were left waiting for a very long time and had to remind her to seat us. Then we were told we couldn’t have milkshakes. Then a number of other tables got milkshakes. We questioned them on this and they said we couldn’t have a milkshake because they had a hen party in. My husband complained because if they had seated us and not forgotten about us we would have been seated before the hen party and all the other tables that got a milkshake. They did make us one eventually but this ruined our experience. The toilets were filthy and there was no toilet roll.
