My son and I visited the Harleywood diner for lunch. When we arrived at 12.30pm we were the only diners and were given some tables to choose from. Not long after we arrived other diners started arriving and it soon became quite busy. The choice of food was very good and I being a vegetarian had a few dishes to... More

Service was great, food was superb, the decor was as you would expect with movie stars and statues, the had small TV screens with movies playing to keep the kids occupied while waiting.

Wasn't sure what to expect based on the trip advisor reviews which vary hugely. Very quirky decor adds to the fun of this place. The 4 of us had a shared starter and 4 mains all huge and tasty with a beer and three soft drinks for £ 55 so good value too. The dessert menu was mainly unavailable so... More

I was so pleasantly surprised by this place. It is quirky and I thought it would be gimmicky but actually had a great time. Food portions were HUGE! The kids' menu is fantastic and the staff, especially Chloe, were fantastic. I really recommend it.

We decided at short notice to eat out as the kids were away. We've been planning to try this American themed Diner since it opened but never got around to it. We knew it was based on a similar set up to Yankies from Seaside Road (an old favourite haunt from years ago) - we wasn't disappointed! Very similar menu... More

Really great atmosphere with friendly staff and lovely food. Some of the portions were huge! The diner is decorated with movie objects/photos and American diner-style furniture to give an authentic feel. The menu choice is massive - all based on American dining - burgers, tex-mex etc. There are some veggie options and fish - you'd be hard-pressed not to find... More

Was wandering around Eastbourne and this place caught my eye lots of film characters and people from American History, very quirky. When i went in i was told the food would be 40 minutes or so, but don't took that long but would be expected in a restaurant anyway. There was just one bloke on his own and the place... More

We went to this diner yesterday and wow what a meal! The portions were typical American sized and so very tasty. Between us we ordered chicken ribs and burgers. Such good value for money and excellent customer service. We will definitely be returning!

We called in Sunday night after a weekend in Easbourne, for a Masonic Weekend. Loved the food, & atmosphere. We only had a main meal & root beer, but it was lovely. I had a Dark Knight, truly hot, but yummy. Hubbie had a huge meal, four different meats in a bun. Very nice, very filling. Very friendly staff, &... More

Booked a table for my mother in laws birthday, we weren't all sat together though! We had young baby, the manager wanted us to put the pushchair on side of the table where they would walk through to bring food out. I wasn't happy with this so we slightly moved the table and put it behind us on opposite side... More
