It's unusual as in this is actually a plane converted in to a restaurant. This more an upmarket american dinner than a traditional english restaurant but the food is good and not too pricey.

My boyfriend is really into flying and I'm cabin crew so thought I'd bring him here for lunch as an early valentines meal. When we walked in there were two waitresses that were so unwelcoming and they looked as though they'd been out the night before and dragged themselves out of bed for their Saturday job. One had the greasiest... More

Yes the kids like sitting in a fuselage for dinner, but the rest of the experience was poor. The service was awful with one waitress seemingly unable or unwilling to help or smile. Arrived at 18.30 and didn't leave until around 21.00, but only had two courses in that time!! The food itself was ok, similar to regular pub grub,... More

My partner and I visited the DC-6 diner for the first time and it was a pleasant surprise. I'd always assumed it was expensive and had problems booking as the phone is never answered. In actual fact it's very reasonable. The food was great, good portion sizes and nice atmosphere. The only downside was the number of staff. They needed... More

Although the DC Diner has been established for a few years, I have never been there before as I thought it would be inaccessible to a wheelchair user. I was wrong and boy have I missed out!. The diner is set in an old DC3 aircraft and due to this the operators have built a moderately steep tarmac ramp to... More

We have been to the DC - diner numerous occasions and never ever had a bad experience. The last time we went we told our mum she had to take her passport because we would be flying to have dinner. I walked up the aeroplane steps first and made the young lady who was welcoming us aware of what I... More

We boarded the DC6 again this year for our sons 16TH Birthday and were not disappointed. Great atmosphere, really good food, excellent service are just some of the reasons to visit this unique dining experience. If you have children they will love sitting in the preserved cockpit pretending to fly the plane (also enjoyed by big kids just as much).... More
