The menu is quite wide, perhaps they could cut it down a bit and concentrate on a smaller menu to increase quality. Service slow but friendly. Everything seemed frozen and average quality. Used to be much better than this. Think they have made cut backs to increase profits, shame as we used to like it here.

Great burgers and huge portions (never thought I'd say it but perhaps too many fries)... but just what you'd expect from an American Style Diner!!

Exactly what you want from an American diner. I've been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it never disappoints. I recommend the milkshakes!

First things first, an American style diner in Rural Northants, in a place of some history is not expected. The decor is typical American glitch with automobile number plates and pop & old movie stars of Hollywood adorning the place. It was quiet on a Tuesday midday so service we expected and got as the only diners. The food a... More

We have had some nice meals here and some average one too. Went in last weekend and were ignored by staff who went on to serve people who came in after us. We voted with our feet and walked out, subsequently we had a superb meal at Jenny's up the road.
