The Almanack is a modified pub in Highcross, Leicester. Visited with my doctor son on a cold, wet early afternoon in last week of January 2013. Good fresh food (I had char-grilled free-range Gammon Rib Eye, Potato Rösti, Poached Egg & English Mustard Dressing), done perfectly well and eaten away with extra cold Guiness does wonders to your system and this is what I felt that day. Slightly costly but highly recommended.

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.

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

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.

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.
