It was a quiet afternoon when we went in. Only one other table was being used.
The layout of the tables is retro which gives it that old 1980s look and there's plenty of it.

When we were given the menu, I was a bit shocked at the pricing. Over £6 for a quarter pounder with fries isn't exactly what I consider "fast food prices" but it's better than Five Guys I suppose.

Pepsi: Now as you may know Pepsi/coca cola quality (carbonation, temperature, size and price) is EXTREMELY important to me as i'm a connoisseur of the cola beverage. The carbonation was great, lots of fizz, temperature was chilly so ideal, the size of the "large" is what I would expect and the price is the only area I don't like. £2.50 then £2.65 for a large seems a bit steep and I know about the "it's where they make their money garbage" but they get the stuff for around 2 liters per pound so just seems a bit greedy AND no refills (which is becoming ever so popular in the UK)

The food was very tasty however and the service was VERY QUICK with a polite waiter.. The pancakes were dry and were hard however...

The Muslim worker there had her two babies just roaming around in the restaurant which did create a lot of noise and seemed unprofessional. For 3 people it came to just over £26 (one with a dessert) which is ok for a proper restaurant not a fast food place.

Too, expensive just had a drink, my friend wanted a burger, it cost a lot and they got the order wrong, could not find anything healthy to eat, so just had a drink, must people I speak to say how expensive the place is, and the food only warm, as result have never gone back. I have put August 2017, as the drop down, not show date, I am sure it was before that, last year.As I have not been back maybe the place is better now, a real shame as when we was children, wimpy was a real joy for the coke float, or those fruit glory deserts Knickerbocker glory.you would share with love one for fun.

We enjoyed our visit. There was lots to choose from on the menu. We found sausage and bacon rolls but no small breakfast in a roll for vegetarians. The restaurant was spotlessly clean. The service was kind and friendly. The food came quickly. The portion size was a bit big for us. The sausage muffin was messy to eat. Overall the food was what you would expect but the service was amazing.

We would recommend that you go there.

We called in here for a bit of breakfast whilst waiting for the remembrance parade to start. The restaurant was clean and well maintained which was good to see from a chain such as this where litter on the floors and tables tends to get left.

We both had a country breakfast which was a decent size, the food quality was as you would expect from a place like this; reasonable quality but nothing to write home about.

Access to the restaurant is easy with no steps so pushchairs and wheelchairs should face little problems. Free Wi-fi is available and the restaurant is large and comfortable with decent seating and tables.

There are plenty of offerings on the menu, the milkshake I had was a little bland but other than this it was a decent experience with friendly and efficient staff.
