This is very much the American themed experience, and this includes the huge portions and no doubt huge amounts of waste. The bottom line is, do not bother with a starter as the main courses are so large that you will not eat all it if loaded up with a first course, and dessert is way beyond the capacity of... More

We stopped at Route 38 for the first time when we were on our way to our holiday let which happened to be just down the road. I loved the classic American diner look as soon as we walked in but wasn't sure it would be toddler friendly. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very helpful and the... More

Called in for lunch recently, and whenever we are heading to Cornwall way we try and make sure we are travelling this way and either stop for lunch or dinner. The ambiance is great, with all of the pop pics, posters and memorabilia, but best of all the food is fantastic! The menu is so good that we always have... More

What a mistake. An expensive exercise leaving no satisfaction other than the use of the toilet. Service was horrendous slow mingled and unorganised. The food was poor quality. No flavour. A shame as it has such potential. I wont be back soon. Ps do not have pancakes.

Only thing that was American was the interior.. Ordered a BBQ burger as it sounded fabulous. The bacon was hardly cooked, still pink and not far off out of the package, I had to pick off the 'cooked' bits as the rest was just the fat -couldn't stomach that, had to leave it all after attempting to eat the 'cooked'...

We went for breakfast on a busy Sunday morning, and we received excellent customer service. Our waitress was very friendly and polite. The food was lovely, and you get a lot for your money.

We had booked our table for 6pm on a Saturday night for a birthday party, our food arrived in good time 6:45 and great size portions, unfortunately 2 meals were returned because they were not warm enough. We finished our main meal at 7:15 and then waited until 8:00 to have the table cleared to order dessert. I feel 45... More

Came in on a Monday with my family, and saw it was quite busy, even on a Monday! We were sat down and had our order taken quickly. The waitress was polite and generally lovely. After eating our hefty portions of food, which was excellent, we had to wait a while for our food to go down. In the meantime... More

a group of ten arrived for breakfast, it was full we said we can eat outside, we requested for tables to be cleaned twice, never happened, we were told if we want anything we had to go in and get it, when asking for cleaning of dusty tables she said you know we are busy, then why let us eat...
