Reviewed February 8, 2013

We are at The Almanack on 25/01/13. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The staff is attentive and friendly. The food was very tasty and pleasantly presented.
Will definitely return to this place.

“Something went wrong”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

I usually love the almanack and initially all was well with the usual excellent service for our early Sunday lunch. Maybe it was too early because the roast pork when served looked decidedly old, no apple sauce because "it's not ready yet" and veg which included cabbage, broccoli and more roast potatoes to accompany those already on the plate. To be fair when she complained a completely different looking meat came out, much better and more like their usual standards. My chicken looked like a rolled joint and not up to their usual standards. They can and do do better, we in turn were really disappointed

“Not the cheapest Sunday lunch but very good!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Love the Sunday lunches here.
Attentive staff, and worth paying that bit extra for. Would definitely recommend this place for those not on to tight a budget.

“Sophisticated, chilled out, not stuffy, relaxing.”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Jazzy live music sometimes, for a more mature crowd suitable for families and young couples. Board games available, good food, coffee and drinks. A lovely chilled out atmosphere, sophisticated but not stuffy.

“Lovely staff”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Was part of a birthday group and had the private area upstairs. The staff were wonderful and accommodating unfortunately the extremely average food means I would never recommend or be likely to return here
