A friend and I went to the restaurant just before lunch time and each ordered coke and fries. We had dined there before and had previously been happy with the restaurant, however, this time was different. The coke was flat and although my fries were fine my friend found a fly in hers. On complaining to the waitress my friend... More

Dined at Route 66 on 3 occasions now, admittedly it had never crossed my mind to dine there until a friend recommended it. The food is good, service is good, the surroundings are quirky. I can not emphasise how small this establishment is, the owners do very well to make the most of it. Would recommend to friends and family.

Always welcome, reasonably priced and many of the meals are made by the owner including wonderful bread & rusk free beef burgers-the real deal

Me and a group of girls frequent Route 66 regularly on a Thursday evening. Our orders range from having a coffee each to having full on meals for special occasions. Well last night will be the last night! The fact that the service was terribly, terribly slow isn't actually the issue. (Even though we were the only customers) On receiving... More

I feel the rather 'shabby' look inside / outside of this restaurant need attention as do the very marked painted internal walls - perhaps a regular 'spring clean' would not be a bad idea? Surprised to see tables cleared of crockery e.t.c but very obviously not wiped down / soft furnishings left in a crumbed and tangled muddle from previous... More

One of our most enjoyable finds, this is our 4th visit and as usual, a warm welcome, We were greated and seated, and had our coffee all within minutes of arriving, main course arrived shortly after. We went for the Jack Daniels burger......deeelicious!! Food is cooked from scratch, so expect a reasonable wait for it to be cooked, we've been... More

This is a great place. The food is good, the people are firendle and very accommodating. I asked for something off the menu and they did it for me. Service is great, personal and polite. I had a burger and my wife had a rack of ribs, proper American fare.

This place was recommended in the guest book of the B&B that we stayed in, and since we fancied a burger we thought we'd give it a go. The food was good and it came out nice and quick, there was loads of choice and the waitress was very pleasant. Would definitely recommend it if your in the area!
