Pretty Poor American Diner Experience

With family we visited this Diner one mid-afternoon. All waiting staff very young, and we were served by a trainee, accompanied by experienced member of staff, which is fine. The menu had changed since I visited last and found it difficult to choose something suitable. When it came, the food was... read more

Had a great time. The waiter was very friendly and even made us special cocktails. The food was really good, will definitely go back for the food challenges.

7 of us went last night after a long day of moving house etc. We were put in a lovely horse shoe shaped booth, and the food and the service were fantastic, loved the juke box, will definitely be going again,

We ate here on Saturday 18th July for my daughters 15th birthday. Seated nice and quickly, food - Plenty Of It and the choice of burgers was great. I wouldn't say the ribs were particularly brilliant, nothing different to the pre-packaged ones you can now get in Asda or Tesco. I was hoping the onion rings and fries would be... More

Today we went to the 7 diner. It look very busy so thought it would be a good experience. We had to wait 2-3 minutes waiting to be seated even thou there was a group of staff standing by the till, but they didn't want to help us. They sat us right at the front of the restaurant with the... More

We ate mid-afternoon on a Sunday - restaurant half full. We were greeted by a real American waiter (actually deputy manager) who welcomed us and made us feel really at home. Good ambience. Just missed top rating because this is fast food and it seemed awhile before the food arrived. When it did arrive, the food was hot and well... More

Been here several times but not for a while. Had hoped it had improved, but alas not. Good as usual is very good and fairly prices/boarding a bit toppy. That said the portions are good, albeit bit too heavy on the cheap skinny fries. So that's the food, and hat off to the chef/cook. Thank you The service however is... More

I've never written a review in my life but I felt this needed to be told. I visited this diner, with 4 friends, after it was recommended to me. I didn't have any expectations, good or bad, so when I walked in and had to wait for my table I decided to be optimistic. It started well. Our waiter (teens,... More

This place has the bones to be great – no, awesome! However, the quality of the food here is letting the all the other elements down. It seems the chef is resting on his laurels a little here and only a few changes could make huge improvements! Just to be clear, the food is distinctly average. I must add, the... More

You can't go too far wrong with American diner style food can you? This place used to be superb and a great place to fill your boots with ribs, burgers and grills. However, the quality of the food just doesn't really cut it anymore. We had ribs, burgers and pulled pork and it was all.....OK. As far as I'm concerned,... More
