Every time I go past or pop in for a bite to eat there's always people there. The staff are friendly, the service is speedy and the food is lovely, every visit. With a great price to match and a classic diner feel that's very 50s, it's overall a great place to eat.

The burger was real homemade meat and was delicious. The coke comes in the old fashioned glass bottles too. My meal was around £7.50 which included the... More
