Description: At AJ's Diner you will find something for everyone! Always fresh and always the best locally sourced ingredients teamed with fantastic service. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, we are here for you! We have a huge menu with breakfasts, fresh roast dinners every day, 28 day dry aged sirloin steaks, burgers, sandwiches, salads, seafood, chicken, starters and sweets. We've got it all! Everything is cooked to order. There's no such thing as frozen food at AJ's unless of course you are talking about the Maud's ice cream! You can even bring your own bottle of wine for our free corkage service! AJ's truly is famous for food! Our customers come from far and wide for delicious meals served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere! We are the perfect choice for families and friends. No need to book! We have expanded our floor area twice to accommodate our customers and now are spread over two floors and three rooms so there's plenty of room for everyone! Having a bigger get together? Call us to book a private function. Nothing compares to AJ's Diner! Or in the words of our owner Alan as he plates up yet another culinary treat, "Sure where else would you get it?!"

Here today with the family. Grand-daughter had the kids chicken.... it was massive? Would have been enough for me.
We’d the chicken goujons with chips, fresh side salad and dips....beautiful and none of us were able to finish our meals.
Great value, server was friendly and food was beyond great.
Been here many times over the years and always come away satisfied

This is the place to eat for miles around... On Sundays there can be a queue.... But truly we'll worth the wait the food matches all that' tastes great across the world. Most main meals are less than £12 can. T Be Beaten Enjoy

Not our first visit by any means and this was no different to our previous experiences. Excellent food,simple and great quality, ample portions, friendly efficient staff and just great all-round value.

AJ's isn't particularly convenient for us but the 45 minute journey (each way) is VERY worthwhile. A trip we are happy to make as often as we can!
