Nice food and great service

I have been a couple of times to have lunch. The food is very tasty and with a good price. They have also a big list of milkshakes that you can eat in or take away. The staff and the atmosphere are very nice at the restaurant. I am sure that if I go again to Axminster I´ll visit them... read more

Fantastic and friendly staff and amazing food! The lady that runs the restaurant was very attentive and a huge hit with the kids - especially when she introduced them to Buck the singing deer! Would highly recommend a visit. The food was delicious and the prices reasonable. A lovely meal out 😊

Had lunch here after searching Axminster for somewhere to get a sandwich. Had popped in River Cottage a couple of doors down to be told they didnt serve sandwiches followed by a rolling of the eyes. We don't do pretence or eye rolling so thought we'd give route 66 a go. Choice was good and staff great. We had nachos... More

My husband had one of the very tasty burgers and I had a lovely jacket potato with sour cream and cheese complimented with cowboy beans, It was a very rainy day and very busy but Gina still managed to find us a table and attend to us immediately. We left... More

Excellent choice of foods, massive portions and they cater for Coeliac disease with Gluten free options. The deer on the wall plays 6 different songs which was amusing to the children, the décor is of various different American places and memorabilia. The service is excellent and helpful despite the senility of one of our party the waitress / owner was... More
