I've been to the Almanack quite a few times in the last couple of months because its got a good atmosphere, the food is nice, there's a good choice & the staff are good at their job.
I've been for a meal with my boyfriend just before Christmas 2012 & booked a table at short notice & the staff are always keen to please. There's never any problem in fitting us in, even though once we arrive, it gets really busy. It's very popular.
Just after Christmas my parents were visiting & I went with my boyfriend & family to celebrate my dads 82 birthday. We all enjoyed it. My dad got a candle in his pudding which was a surprise & nice touch.
Me & my boyfriend have been again last weekend & we both had the Lamb with hotpot. It was amazing. The pastry was perfect. The pudding was nice too - mini doughnuts with chocolate sauce. We were there for a few hours.
There is always a nice mix of people of all ages, which is good.
Our waitress who we've seen a few times called Cristy/Christy (sorry forgot if there's a h!). She is very good at her job. Impressed. Pleasant & professional. All the staff seem to work hard, & it's nice to be able to see the chefs at work too.
I'd recommend the Almanack to friends & family & can't wait to have another nice meal there.
