I had worked late and Bedford and dropped by when on my way home as I had been working late. There was a good choice of dishes in an authentic american diner setting. The food was fine, the usual burgers fries and coke etc. very popular and with car meets there on some nights very popular with the younger generation.

Having read all the reviews about Kens I thought I would add my own thoughts - went with a friend for lunch and found the diner to be clean and we were greeted warmly when we entered - the service was good my only complaint is the chips weren't great and I felt £2.00 for a can of root beer...

Me and my friend visited the restaurant on Monday 30th September, after seeing the many bad reviews about the diner - and although we found some bits bad, we were surprised with what we were offered. The good points - The lady on at the time was very welcoming and polite, greeting us as soon as we entered. The menu... More

Big mistake We went in and the decor and feel of the place was as expected 'american diner' and quite interesting and was looking forward to dining there. But sadly there was very loud live music on, singing to about 4 customers, and... More

When we arrived we thought it was fine. Good crowd of people and live music so nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We ordered... More

Popped in for a bite to eat with the wife and first impressions weren't too bad. We sat at three different table before we were happy which might sound picky but, the first table had a draft from an open door. The second table we sat near the Cadillac and people kept walking over with their kids to look at... More
