Great food and nice atmosphere. We both had the 2 course lunch menu. Both of us had steaks which where delicious. I had the bread and butter pudding with white chocolate and custard - great portion size and very tasty. Danielle had the fudge cake which she said was very nice. Will definitely go again and take the family. The bar looks great as well. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.

Two of my friends and I visited the Almond Bar on Saturday at lunch time. The restaurant is larger than it looks from the outside, and has a lovely, peaceful atmosphere. The staff were attentive and advised of the special offer, in order for us to save money. The staff were knowledgeable and interested in what we had to say. The food was nicely presented and really tasty. We can't fault this restaurant/cafe and will be back again in the future. Thank you for a lovely afternoon, Almond Bar.

The food was absolutely beautiful, we all had different starters, mains & desserts & all were cooked to perfection & tasted gorgeous. The staff were very attentive & we couldn't have asked for more.

I’m really sad to write this. Staff are fantastic. I was disappointed in the choice of roast dinners- gammon or chicken breast. I went for Thai green curry, very bland. Also we are sat right by the chefs and their language was appalling. One in particular. I was sat with my baby daughter too.

A lot of the things on the menu were unavailable when for example the Sunday roast the skinny fries and also 2 of my party ordered the same desert to be told there was only one available and when it did come the waitress did not recognise it. Overall disappointing

Sorry to say food was either cold or Luke warm and tasteless, the chips tasted as if the fat needed changing and don’t like restaurants who use microwaves. First and last visit.

Thank you for leaving a review, but I am sorry we didn’t get it right for you. I am even more sorry that it must have played on your mind for two months before you posted the review. All I can ask is that if you would give us another opportunity to set things right please contact me direct at the restaurant. This way I can make sure you see us in all our glory ! Many thanks Rob Scott General Manager

Service was shocking, 3 waitress chatting at the till . Food was really cold . I ordered fish and chips peas . Chips were hard I only eat one peas were also very cold . Same with the mushroom starter.

My husband ordered the steak to be cooked medium this came well done again the chips were hard . My husband commented that the only nice thing was the pepper corn sauce.

We didn’t bother to order a desert. We only had one drink each . We decided to finish are food and move on to another bar for drinks .

Food was nice. Staff were attentive. Got a bit noisy from the bar and the music got a bit loud at times. Maybe try and zone the music for the restaurant/bar. And maybe partition the bar from the restaurant better. Other than that, we had a good time.

Overall the restaurant was very nice, very cramped though, I’m glad the table next to us wasn’t being used while we were there as it would of been uncomfortable. The staff were kept very busy and the quality of the food was great. The only downside was 4 women sat behind us and resembled 4 hyenas, not the restaurants fault but I would of appreciated it if they had moved to the bar area to continue screeching at other so the rest of us could eat in peace!! I would return as the food and staff were lovely. Not overpriced either. 😊

Enjoyed the food, although the sauce in the prawn linguine was a little too rich and required more seasoning for our tastes.
Staff were brilliant, friendly and attentive.
We didn’t eat dessert as the selection is a bit limited but all taken into account we will dine there again.

Amazing service! Really attentive and ensured we had everything we needed. Great gin and wine selection! Food was average. Risotto lacked flavour and seems under cooked. Calamari too dry and over seasoned. Chicken was dry. Sea bass was lovely, but again lacked flavour.

Service was really positive but getting the food was really slow. Cheesecake was not a cheesecake it was more like a mousse in a glass.
