Average - Little disappointed

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... read more

I'm pleased I didn't read the other reviews before I came, as it might have put me off. We were greeted nicely by one lady and shown two our table. We had our two kids with us so she also grabbed us some balloons and crayons. Our drinks were served promptly and my OH strawberry milkshake was apparently delicious Food... More

WOW. This hotel and diner is one of a kind! My husband, myself and our two children were staying over night at the hotel as it was local to a family wedding. We was greeted and checked into the hotel by extremely friendly staff and was given all of the information we needed for my stay. Once we had settled... More

I was very disappointed with the restaurant when our family of 8 had dinner on 15th March.3 tables had been pushed together of different height, wine glasses were dirty with lipstick, the service was extremely poor, staff were standing around chatting, we had to ask if we could order our food. Waited one and half hours for it to arrive!... More

After booking in ahead of time we were told to wait 10 minutes while the table was prepared. Not a problem only when we got to the table (with plenty of other empty tables around) there wasn't even any cutlery. After an hours wait until our food came to the table then when it finally came we still had no... More

We were really looking forward to coming to this diner for breakfast, the service was awfully slow we waited 40 minutes for two cups of tea and over an hour for our pancakes. The waitress came over to then say "your drinks shouldn't be too long" and then again for our food. The diner wasn't even busy which is why... More

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 slice... 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...

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
