Every time I come here I am reminded why I don't come more often. The decor is amazing and really well done (1950's diner jukebox etc) and the food is ok if a little overpriced but the thing that spoils this place is the service. The place is staffed by teenagers who walk around the place aimlessly without any urgency... More

We have been to the Seven Diner on a number of occasions now and it has got steadily worse. When it first opened it was good but it is now much worse than average On our recent visit the menus were sticky with food and we waited ages for our meals even though the restaurant was only half full. They... More

We've been to this restaurant on several occasions in the belief that it would get better - how wrong we were!! The first couple of times the orders were either wrong or took an exceptionally long time to be served even when the place was almost empty!! Last time we went was for my daughters birthday (against our better judgement... More

A group of us went, we asked for the bill to be split into groups at the beginning but by the end the bill came to us as one - which was helpful. The choice of burgers was good and prices weren't too bad but service was slow. The only thing of our meal that came to us in reasonable... More

We enjoy dinner here about once every couple of months. The food is good, the 50's atmosphere is really good and the service is excellent. We have 2 young children and they have a great time each time we go. The kids menu is really reasonable, the balloons are great and the outside play area is brilliant. There is a... More

I suppose waiting 45 minutes for a burger and a hot dog is just about acceptable if you have been warned, but we were not. OK, the place was busy (though getting quieter by 2 30) on this bank holiday Monday lunch time and I could see the staff working hard, and they were all pleasant and helpful, but we... More

Thank you for your review. I will bring this to the attention of my Head Chef and look at where we could improve. We have had hundreds of customers through our doors over this bank holiday and most have enjoyed themselves and the experience of a buzzy Diner, I'm so sorry that you didn't. On a positive note I am... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a stay at this lovely hotel and dinner for a night as he knows how much I appriciate the 50ties theme and american diners. This place was as close to the theme as it could've been. It actually felt like you were in the 50 centuary in an American suburb. To start with the food,... More
