It's simple - if you haven't yet eaten in Fat Lils, then you should. The food is fantastic and the service is second to none. The whole place is buzzing and it has all the best features of a family run business. You can be certain that the food you are served and the manner in which it is prepared,... More

Steve, May I say on behalf of the Spink family, that your kind words are very much appreciated. I honestly believe that we all (every member of the team) try our absolute hardest to give the quality and service you'd expect. So it's super rewarding to have that recognised. Thank You so much and hope to see you again soon.... More

Great selection of food too many to choose from really, but that just means I'm going to have to go back again. Friendly staff, look out for the guy with the Peppa Pig tattoo, he was really helpful.

I've wandered past this place many times during the day and there was something that held me back coming for an evening meal. The atmosphere maybe, 'diner' theme but not really diner atmosphere. I went in during the afternoon to check out the menu and chat with the staff. I was assured that all ingredients are freshly prepared, including the... More

I liked the idea, american food and american design. The Menu was american style food, but actually it didn't taste great at all. It was a bit tastless and no one really enjoyed there meal.

This Mexican-cum-American diner also doubles up as a music venus in the evenings. The menu is quite varied and there is plenty of choice for people not eating meat or fish. Everything is cooked fresh to order, and portion sizes are very generous. The decor is peppered with old American artefacts, and old-school swing, rock and jazz music plays in... More
