Friendly Sta

Whenever I'm in the area visiting family, I always make a date or two to make sure I visit this particular branch. Staff are very friendly and its a great little family business. Food I find in this branch is always top standard, would reccomend anyone pop in for breakfast if they get the chance

I visit Wimpy everyday!! I have been going there for years! The staff are fantastic! Food is fast and good quality. They always welcome you when you visit. The restaurant is up to date and modern as well. I'd rather go in there for lunch than visit anywhere else in Grays because your food is always fresh!

I've taken my children here a few times after a shopping trip. It's often rather quiet when I visit, which the centre isn't quiet so it may just be here. Winpy is in a bit of a time warp( but I like the fact it's not changed much from my childhood) The staff wait on the tables and bring food... More

Went to the wimpy on a late afternoon around 5 o clock, felt rushed, ordered a meal and drinks which came quickly, too quickly as the chips were lukewarm and some were only half cooked, they were also sweeping up around us, I didn't think the centre shut until 6 o clock, maybe they were in a hurry to get...

So i wanted to take my children to show them what dining was like in the early 70,s i was really looking forward to this and what a let down restaurant was stuck with the same decor thats ok but the really disappointing thing is the food may as well been cooked in the 70's anemic looking burgers that were...

This review may interest people who normally never go to The Wimpy: they may be as pleasantly surprised as this reviewer was. The reviewer got off the train looking for a Starbuck or Mugg and Bean but these were nowhere to be found and so with great misgivings went into the Wimpy. What a good decision! Straight away I was... More

Stopped off for quick lunch midweek. Staff who served us were extremely friendly and helpful. Person who seated us somehow guessed I had a headache and immediately offered me some water so I could take a tablet. Totally friendly and attentive yet professional without. Highly recommended. Food came quickly and was good value.

We was walking about and fancied a afternoon tea and cake. We noticed the chocolate cake in the window on a poster and ventured inside. There was a young guy behind the counter that I believe was the chef, the manager, the cashier, the customer service attendant, the most politest person you could ever meet. We were served attentively and... More
