We thoroughly enjoy coming to this diner. We ordered the diner burger, milkshakes and finished it with a devine waffle. It was everything we expected and more. The prices are a bit steep, but that is understandable due to the village being far from suppliers...More

It was nice and cosy. It was a cold day and they had a fire. My order took a little long and they did not have any wipes, only serviettes, so they offered a wet cloth instead.

I think it closes at 8. It's not a place that is often open very late. Especially Sundays.
