“Diner ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We was driving on the A1 and we decided to stop off for a bite to eat and drink. We had two milk shakes one was the black forest which was full.of cherrys and delicious and one was the mint one this was very refreshing. We both had burgers which were a great size however the top bit of bun was burnt accidents happen. They were filling and salsa was gorgeous. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would really recommend beats McDonald's or burger king and it's about the same price.

“Top notch American diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We regularly travel up and down the A1 to visit family, and one of the highlights of the journey is calling in at an OK Diner en route. Because of the timing of our journeys, it is usually the Colsterworth one, on the southbound side of the A1. This is in a building formerly occupied by a Little Chef or Happy Eater long ago, and so it lacks the metal cladding and neon signs that give the two branches on the northbound A1 a more obvious American diner look - but it's easier to get a table without needing to queue, as it's a bigger place. Inside, there's the same great food and service. Great burgers, and a lot more besides. Portions are very generous - I've seldom found myself in need of dessert, although the cheesecakes are great if you can manage one. Despite the quality and portion size, OK Diners are not expensive, a great bargain in fact.

“Ok but need to chase serving staff sometimes for more drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

This is a regular stop point and has been for a number of years

It is ok as a diner and no pun intended.

The food is standard across the range and here gets it about right.

On the service, there is sometimes a need to get attention for a drink top up and this is where they need to raise their game a bit but otherwise a good long journey stop.
