Looks like a rundown building that haven’t had much effort put into it. Staff were pleasant and food was incredible just a shame about the overall atmosphere and style of the building

We had the HQ burgers, which were tasty! We were a bit disappointed the full menu wasn’t running, hopefully next time we visit it’ll be back as we were hoping for Mac and cheese balls. The waitress was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately they were also short of drink options when we went but these things happen! Overall we would come back again :)

Seemed short staff, felt sorry for the waiter, he was running around trying to serve all the tables, making sure all customers were happy. He’s a credit to your team. Shame the drinks delivery hadn’t arrived yet on a Saturday tea time. Was disappointing only having a limited few drinks to choose from. But I understand that’s probably out of the restaurants control.

Excellent food and great service. Covid rules were well applied and weren't a burden. Great burgers and different flavour drinks.

The service doesn’t get better than at Only Famous. Everyone was so lovely, there was table service too so no using the app. I missed that so much and glad my first dining experience after lockdown was here. Food and drinks were amazing as always too!

Went with my daughter who can be a bit picky with food. Asked to order with QR code which is becoming standard but made amendments to the order to remove the items my daughter doesn’t like. Turned up perfect. Staff really friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. We were a bit slow to eat but weren’t rushed at all. Drinks were a bit pricey but the food was great value for us. Really enjoyed and will be coming again

Burgers were fab. £1 for the tiniest pot of the famous sauce was a bit silly but enjoyable sauce anyway.

Firstly they don’t tell you it’s upstairs!
There was no atmosphere and the inside was dark cold and not welcoming. Not as the Instagram shows.
You get sent to a table and told to order via the app.

My first wow moment was being charged £3 for cream soda to be given and 89p can of BARR and a glass.

The food looks amazing on Instagram but IRL is was so disappointing. Small portions of sauce laden beef patties in a bun

The wonder fries made me wonder where they were as they too were covered in sauce so much they few chips there were swimming.

A disappointing experience, which put a dampener on my birthday celebrations

Because of the pandemic there was a reduced menu but we both still found something yummy to eat. The vegan burger was lovely.

Long service time for food, couple arrived after us and got served before. Extremely loud party of 6 very obviously not living together, no efforts made to stop them being very loud.

Food was amazing.
