Service left a lot to be desired

We went here for a family meal, we had been in the past and the kids liked it. However, we will not be back. Firstly the restaurant was so cold I had to keep my fleece on throughout the meal. My wife, son and I ordered the ribs which were okay except for the sorry looking lettuce leaf and... read more

We visited for lunch having driven past this Diner style restaurant on our way home on a couple of occasions. Really wish we hadn't!! The restaurant itself is actually nicely kitted out and does look like a American style 60's diner and had a menu to match the theme, prices are similar to most American theme restaurants like a TGI's...

Went here on recommendation from a friend. I like the decor and the theme, would have liked better presented food and a better table though! I had the rack of ribs, which came on a bare plate with chips and one small ring of fresh onion.....!! Now thats not how the Americans do it now is it?! The ribs were... More

7 Hotel is a very authentic Ameican Diner - big booths to sit in, 60s music playing from a juke box, and a classic (albeit British) car parked outside. On arrival, the staff were friendly and we were shown to our reserved booth. The menu is typical of a classic American diner, burgers, ribs etc. Service is prompt but not... More

I've come here to eat a few times - notably for the Ribs Challenge and it doesn't disappoint! The portions are generous and the ribs fall off the bone. I actually ended up winning the grand rib off final last week which was good fun and means I get to come back to try more food on the menu. The... More

We visited this restaurant today. The decor is 60s America with a juke box playing all the songs of the era. The food was delicious, well prepared and served by competent young and enthusiastic staff.

Visited restaurant in early 2014 and was not impressed by the standard of food or service. Needed to meet a business client near M25 so suggested the 7 Diner, oh dear no improvement. The 1st coffee arrived, but the milk had separated. I asked for lightly cooked bacon, and I get 2 oven baked rashers stuck together and dried up.... More

I use this establishment when visiting Fort Halstead. As I tend to arrive very early (approx. 0700) to avoid all the M25 traffic chaos it is fabulous to have such a convivial establishment to have breakfast before starting my day. The atmosphere is very convivial. Love the American theme which is excellently portrayed. The food is quick, good quality, and... More

Not the first but definately the last time we will be eating here. plenty of room at 4pm with only 3 full tables however with disinterested staff it was probably 3 to many. especially the server with the mohawk who continuously wiped his nose while serving, thankfully he didnt serve us. The floor under our table was covered with old... More

We went for my birthday treat and it was a treat. I personally love peanut butter so I went for peanut butter milk shake and the burger with peanut butter in. They were great! We love the decor and music at the diner and it has a lovely outdoor play area for the children. Will love to go back again... More
