Beautiful Roast dinners, lovely service from a polite team and a lovely atmosphere
The service was good, we struck up a good conversation with the waiter. The food came quickly, my steak was a little overdone but very dry, not succulent as you’d expect. The chips were ‘standard’, I’d expect something better than putting some frozen chips in a deep fat fryer for that price! The salad ‘just watercress’ was limp and I noticed from the open kitchen that almost every bit of food had been handled by the chef which isn’t great. Taking our drinks order was quick but delivering the actual drinks took up to 10 minutes sometimes. Overall good, but food quality seems to be slipping over the past 12 months.
Fantastic service! Super attentive and friendly. Food was really good too and great value. Would definitely recommend!
Had a great celebration meal with fab service , great waiter and food was served quickly.
Great service and a relaxed and friendly vibe. Food was delicious.
I have eaten at the Almanack many times and it is always consitant. Great food choice and prepared well, extremley tasty and the service is excellent. The place has a great vibe and of course the bar is cool too. Their choice of drinks is excellent and the know how to mix a cocktail or do a realy nice gin. Highly recommended for business or pleasure, the manager clearly coaches his team well and it shows.
Food was fresh and hot and tasty
Staff were attentive and happy and friendly
Will be back this weekend
Can't fault the Almanak in Kenilworth.
Great service and excellent food.
Last time I ate here I had a lovely meal in the restaurant area but the only unbooked table this time was in the bar area which wasn't as great! There were dogs everywhere and the atmosphere was really loud to the point that we were unsure whether the barman understood our order. The food was good although last time I went there were some lovely skin on potato wedges served with the steak which seem to have disappeared....
Staff on the ball from when arrived right through, food was all very good, draft coke not so good my mistake not to ask for bottles but would use again every time in the area
Great lunch with family. A lovely relaxing time with good food and very good service.
Staff very friendly and welcoming.
Excellent atmosphere, very friendly and attentive staff and the food was yummy, 2nd visit here and we literally love it!
Met a friend here last minute for Sunday lunch. Was able to book a table online the night before really easily. The food was fantastic-all home and freshly cooked - and the beef was exquisite. The crumble dessert was served out of the tin it had just been made in so I knew it was freshly made there and then. Got a jug of table water the minute we arrived, didn’t have to ask for it. Great experience. Loved it.
We stayed in kenilworth for the weekend and decided to check this place out after reading some reviews and the online menu. Booking was simple using the online system. When we arrived we had a friendly getting from the staff who showed us the table and gave us a couple of minutes to choose drinks to start with. The selection of drinks is fairly comprehensive and decent value. We all (4 of us) had starters, mains and dessert, all of them cooked very well and very tasty, some from the excellent specials selection. I ordered a Remy Martin VSOP to polish off my dinner and the barman even came to apologise that the Remy was out but they had a different VSOP (Martells) if I didn't mind that, of course not! Properly done. You should try this place, it is noisy but then again we went on a Friday night so you can't expect peace and quiet then can you? Go for it, you won't be disappointed.
Mum’s birthday lunch. Staff very accommodating and pleasant. Aina and the team do a great job! Food delicious and substantial which why we return time and again
What an amazing waiter. Thank you.
Wonderful food, great staff. Have already recommended to friends and colleagues.
One of the best restaurants in the wider area. The two course deals are excellent value and served on a hot plate. Staff are helpful and the kitchen will tweak things to suit.
Can’t fault the food or service..it was all fab and would definitely eat there again!
One of my favourite restaurants- service always great and food to match.
I have eaten here quite a few times and the food is always of a high standard. One of the nicest things is the warm atmosphere it has a great vibe with the high ceiling and an interesting bar. I had the scallops followed by the rump lamb with cous cous and baba Ganoush which was very tasty, the lamb was a little tough but still cooked very well so not worth complaing as I did eat it all ;-)
Extremely nice environment. A good, friendly service along with very tasty food and drink made for a very enjoyable evening. Would highly recommend
Good food, friendly staff, pleasant surroundings, easy to use reservation system.
Booked it last minute and was greeted by friendly staff. Ordered drinks at the table and the service was speedy....... that’s where the good comments end I’m afraid!
When you’re a vegetarian that isn’t a massive cheese lover and is offered two main courses and one of those is a salad when there must be 20 meat options in my opinion is poor!
We are regulars to the Almanack after walking the dog and coffee and cake is great but this is poor.
Lovely evening, great service and the specials were amazing.
Just the best Sunday dinner served so fresh by lovely staff with kitchen on view. Well done team
I visited with my elderly aunt (97 this week). The staff could not have been more helpful, even suggesting that she might like a half portion which turned out to be perfect. Everyone was very friendly and there was a lovely atmosphere. The food was good, too.
Overall the service was very poor.
Roast of the day was originally Beef but changed to Pork, which was fine but had clearly been microwaved making it very chewy and tough. No one checked that the meal was ok.
Waited far too long to be seated, drinks order was taken but again took a long time to arrive. We had to ask for condiments with our meals and our coffee order was completely forgotton about.
As I said a very disappointing evening which was to celebrate my Birthday and Retirement with my work colleagues.
We came here on Friday 20th October for my mums birthday from start to finish the team looked after us really well, I dropped off balloons and a Cake In the day time and nothing was too much bother. The menu was great, the food was lovely, our table was fabulous and the team and manger on shift that evening were brilliant.
All of my family members commented and said that they would love to come back and I couldn’t agree more.
We will all definitely be returning for future gatherings.
Thank you for everything you were all brilliant
Friendly staff, great food and they give you a jug of gravy with a Sunday roast!
Another great Sunday Roast - ideal for making usre students are well fed!
A very pleasant evening. Food and service was good.
Breakfast was taken here whilst staying at a local hotel as we try and use local businesses. This was a mistake. Food was precooked and lukewarm. The issue was dealt with swiftly but resulted in a disappointing experience.
Food Up to the usual high standards we've come to expect. Our party had two roast beef lunches, a steak and the salmon plate. All great and followed by a pudding. The chocolate torte base has changed though...love that old shortcrust pastry better than the biscuit base. Service excellent from the really pleasant, professional staff.
Great business dinner with 10 colleagues, staff were friendly and helpful. Food was great so would highly recommend
Fantastic Sunday lunch. Three of us had the pork and two had the beef ( with a choice of how it was cooked). Everyone was happy. Lots of veg, in fact fitting everything on the table was a challenge! Was also offered more roasties and Yorkshire puds. None of us could manage it. Great service. The staff are always very good. Only gripe is it is too noisy. Managers please put some baffles on the ceiling!
An enjoyable meal.I am lactose intolerant and the chef coped with that without any stress! The duck was good and my partner enjoyed his burger and pud. He said the beer was good and I enjoyed my Rioja. The staff were very attentive.
Consistently good food at great value prices. Love the lunch menu offer. The chocolate tart is so good that it's difficult to try anything else! Visiting again this weekend so may branch out!
Excellent food and service
