I've seen some of the worse reviews and can understand them because one of my visits over the last few months was bad but that was all down to one waitress who clearly couldn't care. The last three visits I had nothing to complain about. There is a very wide menu with something for everybody. Roast dinners, steaks and fry... More

I nearly fell on the floor in here. The floor is quite greasy just like the food. The food here is full of oil and on massive plates with tiny portions and the staff charge different prices to what is on the menu, Will not return, save your money folks

The food I got from here (burger and chips) seemed to be handed to me as if it had been just removed from their fridge. The girl also got my order wrong when I asked for my burger undressed but she denied it. WILL NEVER BE BACK AGAIN. Dump.

food being overcooked is okay but here burns it and when you are able to eat it, it burns your mouth completely. Staff are cheeky, floors are full of grease. Wont be back.

Been here a few times recently I enjoy the food here and the service is grand. It can be a bit busy at times but that can be expected.

The staff are moderately friendly here. The food is so-so. The garlic fries don't taste of garlic. The plates are chipped and the cups make drinks taste like soap. I think this diner needs to improve in the food and also the floors were greasy.

Nadines has a charm unmatched by similar establishments in the town. Very clean, friendly, helpful and efficient staff and good wholesome food. Visited a number of times since my last review and have never been disappointed. Prices have firmed up a bit but still represent good value. And still worth stepping out of the town centre to visit.
