The best burgers we've had in years if ever! This was our first time after a recommendation and certainly won't be our last, very friendly and helpful staff, well worth the train journey from Cumbria.

Excellent food. Only criticism was that whilst the staff were helpful once asked, there were often nowhere to be seen; they were all tucked away around the corner near their till system. Our food arrived with no cutlery or napkins and I had to wait a few minutes until our waitress was visible to us to signal for help. A minor issue, but one that could easily be sorted if the waiting staff were more visible when working

What a find! These were the best burgers we have had and great menu choices - the fries were cooked perfectly too. The staff were very efficient and friendly. We visited on a Saturday night and felt lucky to get a table. We found the place from Trip Adviser and booked a table online which was an easy process. As the restaurant is not on the ground floor it is easy to miss so look out for the sign board. We will definately be back and tell our friends too.

Went to celebrate my twin boys 8th birthday, wanted to show them what a proper cheeseburger was like as a change from McDonald's, which like all kids they love! We waited 50 min for food to arrive, no apology or explanation when it finally did arrive, then we have to send the chicken burger back because it was burnt and dry as old boots. I booked online and on the online page its asks what is the occasion and also has a comments section. I selected birthday celebration and also put details in the comments section about it being my twin boys 8th birthday and anything that could be done to make it more special would be appreciated. Nothing was even mentioned what so ever on our visit. Very disappointed and will not be going again.

Food was good but a bit too salty. Service was great and staff really nice. Only drawbacks were the seats at the table were still wet from previous wipedown and one of the toilets had a hole in the floor.

Food was nice I’ve been before but the waiter was RUDE told us there was no walk ins with a sarcastic smile, we left and I tried to book online and it worked and when we went back to him he said URGH my 6 o’clock table won’t have anywhere to sit now but looks like I’ll just have to sit you down won’t I! I was like yeah. So rude. And when we sat down there were so many empty tables, more empty than filled.. I just don’t think he wanted us to eat in tbh

Atmosphere was lackluster. Decor and furnishings need a revamp. Burgers were nice. Fries were more a portion of salt with some fries in it.

Having visited other Almost Famous locations we were disappointed with the food at this one. The chicken burger was over cooked, the fries were over seasoned and the chicken wings (usually the meat falls off the bone) were overcooked.
The toilets were not in a great condition either :(

The food was great but the staff didn’t know much about the menu. We asked about puddings but they said they might be on the menu - they weren’t.
We were waiting to pay for a while.

Our table was booked at 6:15 we was seated on time. So, good start!
Another table has been seated after us which we’re all men and my table were all women. The female waitresses focused mainly
on the male table. Took there drinks order before ours even though we were seated first and then took their food order first.
I then had to leave my seat and go ask them to take our order.
15 minutes later they come and take out order.
Food arrived within 20-30 minutes.
I later asked for the bill so I could pay, waited 15 minutes for the bill. Was not happy with the service on this day. I do eat here quite often so I’m very disappointed and won’t be back.
Only thing being served that day was discrimination and leaving the door was the Equality Act 2010.

Felt like we were unwelcome. Got asked to order 3 times by different staff before we even had a chance to look at the menu (one menu between us) and treated like an inconvenience throughout. I’ll not be going back, which is a shame because the food was fine.

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
