“Regular stopping point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

Another great breakfast. I wish all Little chefs were like this one. No gluten free options which would be nice when so many places offer this now.

“Unpretentious "Homely" Diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Have visited 5 times recently. Excellent swift service even at busy times,food good and cooked well (eggs on the turn,gooey rather than runny).Very clean and the prices reasonable.Staff are always friendly without being false and are accommodating of my son who has learning difficulties. Seems to attract "normal" people rather than posers!

“Possibly the best breakfast in the country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

I know what you're thinking. You've stopped for petrol. You fancy some scran. The tiny Costa bar in the petrol station isn't really doing it for you. So you venture behind the garage to have a look at the diner. Oh dear. It doesn't look very appealing, do you risk it or drive on?

Risk it! Do it now! Their full English is hands down one of the best I've ever had! I've stayed in Five Star hotels that could learn plenty about making breakfasts from these guys. They don't shy away from offering a fried slice either, a welcome rarity in these health-scare obsessed times.

Whoever is running the kitchen back there is a genius, and an artisan. And the coffee's pretty good too.

“Clean, Friendly & Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

I have stopped off at Popham Diner a few times now, it's a nice little place, which is clean and tidy, the food is cooked well, the staff are friendly and the prices are fair. That's surely all you need for a diner next to a busy A road. I plan on making further stops there in the future and would happily recommend it, much better than the little chefs that are close by.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

We eat here on a fairly regular basis and whenever our son is visiting us from Scotland we always goes to the Popham Diner for him to have one of their superb breakfasts. We all enjoy their incredible fried bread! It's run by a very friendly family and excellent value for money.
