Slimming World? Yeah, maybe give this one a miss. Such good food and brilliant service - I've had a few of their burgers now and each one has been amazing with some fantastic choices of sides and drinks. Would always recommend the Bacon-Bacon fries! Everywhere was clean and tidy too - great stuff.

We went there for dinner and had very nice burgers. The place is also a kind of warm up bar for friends before hitting the Manchester night, so don’t go in waiting for a quiet place! Service is also very friendly and the chips and frites were also great!

I don’t normally get around to writing reviews but had such a good evening here, I just wanted to say thank you. The food was lovely and service prompt, but what really made the evening was how friendly and attentive our waitress Christine was - it’s rare that you’re made to feel so welcome eating out with kids and my two boys (aged 6 and 10) enjoyed it as much as we did - they loved the colouring and milkshakes and commented upon how nice Christine was to them :-) Nothing was too much trouble and it was a very relaxed meal before the theatre. Will be back soon x

What amazing food they have here at almost famous!
We certainly were not disappointed!
We all cleared our plates with no complaints.... One tiny thing I think they could improve on is to serve food on plates and NOT in a basket.

Toilets upstairs, quite dark but interesting.

Staff all seemed lovely, even if they did laugh at me for asking what a unicorn burger was!

Would definitely return!

I'd love to bring my kids there as they'd love to food!

Thank you
