“Oh my god! Go for it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

On a commendation, 6 of us visited Charlie Browns diner- Good move!
Service was unbelievably warm, welcoming, friendly and efficient.
Food was possibly the best value I have ever encountered. The starter was arguably adequate as a main course. The main was without doubt the largest I have ever been served. My wife and I ordered half shoulder of lamb on Friday - finished it on Sunday! The staff are so used to diners being unable to finish a meal that one doesn't have to ask for a doggy bag, it is offered BEFORE you can ask - not that I have ever asked for a doggy bag in my life! We put the well wrapped remainders in the fridge and saved the cost of a Sunday roast. Ditto for the pudding, as only one person ordered a sweet, the wonderful lady served it and offered 5 extra spoons for the rest!!!! Want a treat? GO FOR IT! My only complaint was that the card machine was out of order, but that's simply unavoidable.

We had a great meal at Charlie Browns on the 30th March 2013 , the service was great , the food you could tell was freshly made and was very tasty and the value for money was excellent. We would definitely recommend it and ill be returning I'm sure .

Great place to eat. Good atmosphere and right in the centre if town. The portions are big enough that you will struggle for a pudding! Good quality and good value.

“Lovely Grub! Lovely Peeps! Lovely Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Went on Saturday 16th as a joint Valentines and Birthday treat. Warmly welcomed like old friends. WARNING The portions are ENORMOUS. Share a starter and then go for a main. you'll never get as far as the desert unless you're a little piggy. Rib-eye was to die for, beautifully cooked and so tender, lovely home made chips. So nice I've booked for 14 of us to go in March during a local conference.
