    Very good staff, who were attentive. The music was too loud (for privacy?) and appeared to cause the conversations at tables to rise in compensation. There are very little soft furnishings to absorb the natural level of conversations, and adding music doesn't help. I'm not trendy enough to use any of the comments in the next section. I can only say, that for twelve years it was our family's go to restaurant in Kenilworth, especially with growing children, but the music has killed it for us. You can't make conversations anymore. Pity!

    As always the service was great but unfortunately this time the food was a let down, the kofta’s to start were over cooked and tasted odd, for the main, I had fish and chips. The fish was watery (like it had been frozen) and the presentation was poor. Really disappointing as the food is normally good

    Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a lovely review following your recent visit to us.  We are delighted that everything was peachy perfect for you. In terms of our food pricing, we are very proud of our food, we do take extra care to ensure we are sourcing top quality ingredients which can come at a slightly higher price point. We use artisan producers, ethically sourced, free range, and sustainable produce where possible. Unfortunately, many of our suppliers have had to put their prices up, and as a result so have we. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Thank you, Reservations Team

    Booked a table for Boxing Day lunch 2023, pleasantly surprised that all the menu was still available late in the day. Business had obviously been busy, but the staff were still very friendly and keen to serve. We had a lovely meal, picked off the specials Board and a quiet table that gave us a good view of the rest of the room.

    Fantastic restaurant and staff, every one so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Always had a smile on their faces and went above and beyond to make our family dining experience a special one!! Food was delicious, first time trying the sausage ravioli and will definitely be having it again! We all had desserts too, sticky toffee pudding was divine, tasted like Christmas!

    Food was delicious, can't fault that, however the service was a little chaotic without attention to detail, the staff we did interact with were very pleasant but we were left sitting between courses for longer than necessary, and while I don't mind a decent break between the courses, we had the feeling this was more because of a mismanagement of tables and adequate staffing, rather than a deliberate attempt at a relaxed dining experience. Shame because the venue is lovely, and so is the food.

    Great food again. Choice is more restricted than it used to be but i can understand why given the current financial pressures. Four of us had a great lunch with very attentive ( but not overbearing) service. The cod with miso glaze was totally delicious. Other diners happy with the Generous portions of haddock and chips. Highly recommend. Support this fantastic local eatery. It never disappoints.

    Four of us meet regularly for lunch and a natter. The Almanack did not disappoint, we were given a choice of tables and our drinks were served promptly. Our meals were promptly served and my friend loved the big chunky chips that came with her fish and chips. The tarte tatin for dessert was delicious and we loved the Smarties that came with our coffees. We would definitely go back again.

    Food is good quality but be prepared to be stung on price for starters and puds. Childrens main £7.50 which is OK, starter £5.50 for two small slices of garlic bread! Sadly being a bank holiday Monday so many items out of stock, advised as we ordered through menu. Poor excuse as clearly not planned supplies. Overall we eat here regularly and its a bit hit and miss. Sunday roasts are good :)

    Got to say this was a poor experience for Mother’s Day. Customer service was really bad all the way through. Took a drinks order when we first arrived and it took almost 30 mins to get a drink. Understaffed and the manager really didn’t care about the service when we mentioned it. The food was average for £20 I expected a lot more on the roast, the Yorkshire pudding was soft and really dry and the veg was under cooked and the roast potatoes / parsnip were cold and hard. For pudding the dessert’s were not great either my mum ordered an apple crumble and it came out as a berry crumble with very little crumble mixture. The two treacle tarts were cold and not very nice was more lemony and my wife had honeycomb ice cream and it was basically vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce mashed through it. Sorry to say not a great experience and I did mention this to the manager which did not offer any apology or sympathy just wanted the money which for 5 people £165 isn’t bad but not when the food was a average standard and cold and the service was poor. Sort it out guys !!!

    Would have been great but the vegetarian/vegan options were thin enough before they ran out of avocados……. No avocados….. in 2022? (Waitrose is just round the corner as well!)

    Have returned many times to The Almanack as we enjoy the atmosphere, excellent food and service. On this occasion we visited to have breakfast with family, as always the service was friendly, quick and efficient and the food was delicious (best veggie breakfast). There is a nice friendly atmosphere and the decor is lovely, the whole of the bar/restaurant is very clean.
