Burgers

The original Famous, If you can find us, you deserve the rewards.
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.

    It was my belated birthday celebration :) The service was amazing! Our waiter was absolutely fantastic! We were allowed to change the table as well due to my ear problems, so I could better hear my friends 😁 Burgers were very tasty, only one thing was waffle fries which we were the most excited about. It wasn’t what we were expecting, too dry despite all the toppings.

    Gorgeous food definitely worth a visit although it was hard to find with no signage up and it's just a door with loads of stairs to get up, we really enjoyed every bit of food was all 10/10 will definitely go back

    Food was mediocre at best, beer choices? £5 for a small can of Camden Helles (horrible), cocktails were not very inspiring and the toilets were an absolute disgrace. Used to be a really good place, it is not a patch on its former self. Won't be going back

    Difficult to find!! One small door which took us ages to find. The venue was ok but was a little rough around the edges - especially the entrance up the stairs. Could do with a good lick of paint. Toilets and wash area could have done with a clean also. The wait for the food was around 40 mins which I think is excessive for Burger and Chips. The food however was spot on, tasted fantastic. Burgers didn’t seem as big as they looked on social media advertisements but were very tasty and came tailor made without the bits I didn’t like 👍. Would definitely return and recommend you give this a try. Vale for money wise I’d score this as a 6/10. Our food bill came in at £65 including 1 soft drink each which for 3 people I would say is on the higher end of the pricey scale.

    Our server was excellent. The only let down was the fries that were Luke warm. Our server replaced them and the next batch were the same. But to be fair our server discounted our bill. It will not put me off visiting again has we liked the ambiance and experience

    I recommend avoiding this place if you have any food or dietary requirements. I cannot believe the nonchalant attitude of the staff when they served my partner who is vegan and severely allergic to dairy (anaphylaxis) a meat dish and told her it was vegan. We were lucky that it didn't have any dairy in it or we would have needed to go to hospital. Upon arrival we told the staff about her allergy and our order was taken by a manager. My partner identified that as she was vegan the allergy usually wasn't a problem - she ordered a vegan burger and vegan bacon fries. When the server brought over the burgers, my partner again identified that she was vegan. When the fries arrived she looked at them and asked "are these definitely vegan?" to which we were told that they were, and not in an uncertain manner. A few minutes of eating passed and the server returned and said "let me confirm if these fries are definitely vegan". Immediately we panicked as many non-vegan sauces contain dairy. We were left in the dark for 5 minutes - which felt a lot longer, without any information on whether she had just consumed dairy or not. A new server then appeared with a new bowl of fries and said "don't worry there was no dairy, it was just not vegan", dumped them on the table and swiftly left before we could even react. It was bad enough that she had consumed animal products (egg and pork) for the first time in over 3 years but this could have been a whole lot worse. What if it had contained dairy? What if she didn't consume animal products on religious grounds? Complete incompetence on the server's part and no apology was given. Zero accountability from management. It's fine for staff to be unsure of something and to double check, but confidently being wrong is highly risky when dealing with people who may have allergies. This could have been much worse. I have never written a review before, my hope is that someone who values food safety sees this and avoids the restaurant.

    Food is incredible. Best burger I've ever had. Staff were nice and helpful. Unfortunately, they have added a compulsory service charge recently which makes the meal quite expensive. The burgers are already £12+, so adding another 10% on after that makes it into an expensive meal.

    I booked on “Open Table” and the young woman initially could not find my reservation. “Are you sure you have the right ‘Almost Famous’?” “Do you have any confirmation?” The tone of the questioning was off putting. I felt I had done something wrong and was embarrassed. I fortunately found the confirmation email on my phone and, “Oh, it’s here. Somebody put it in the wrong place. Follow me.” A rather poor way to start a, what turned out to be, a good meal and great service. Maybe the tone should have been trusting and assuming that the customer might have it right?

    Our 1st experience & my son said it was the best burger he's ever had. The service was super friendly and quick. My only gripe was that we couldn't find it! Look for the smallest plaque on the wall and stairs going up..... We walked past it about 5 times haha

    The food is absolutely amazing!! The burgers are just enough on their own as they are so filling though not too much to make you feel enormous! The service is amazing and the food is to die for. I had the Juicy Double and it was the best burger I’ve ever had!! Definitely be eating there again.
