Ideal meeting place for early supper with family passing through; children’s menu adequate & adult menu showed good variety.

The lamb roast was delicious but the meal needed more gravy as it was a bit on the dry side and had to ask for extra. Lemon posset was delicious too. Bit on the pricey side and glad that I had a £20 off coupon

Great lively atmosphere on Christmas Eve. At first no Prosecco - they’d run out! But then someone obviously went shopping and they got a few bottles in-hurrah!!!

Very good roasts, went there with my Mum for Sunday lunch. It’s nice food but a bit too much of a modern pub vibe and really loud to think to go out of my way to go back, but if you’re a local a great place I’m sure.

The best Sunday lunch out in years...and as a diabetic vegetarian I recommend their veg wellington which was amazing, excellent flavours, well filled and minimal amount of pastry. The staff were attentive without being intrusive, and all looked as if they were enjoying their work!

We went for my birthday for lunch as a family with my two kids who are under 3. The Sunday roast was amazing and the staff went above and beyond to make the experience, especially our 2 year olds special and amazing. They also bring extra Yorkshire’s and roast potatoes!

My most visited restaurant outside of London. It never disappoints. Four of us enjoyed a lovely lunch sampling pie of the day, beer battered fish and chips, and salmon. Two of us ate off the lunch time menu which is great value for money. It was clean plates all round and very happy customers. The staff are great, always willing to check things with the kitchen and tweak things if possible. Highly recommend.

Always lovely to dine here. Staff are fantastic...great service without being in your face. Lunch time menu provides fantastic value for money and portion sizes are generous. We all had rib-eye gammon with poached egg and chips which was lovely but not the best thing I’ve eaten here ( the standard is high). Finished off with selection of ice cream and sorbet...all very good. Highly recommended.

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.

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.

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....

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.

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 ;-)
