Stopped off on our return trip for a cooked breakfast. Loved the American diner theme and decor. Extensive menu and friendly service. I felt sorry for the waitress and several people turned up in a short space of time and she was serving on her own, but she did it all with smile. Breakfast was lovely and will be back.

Love love love it here! Can't wait to go back I had a Philly cheese steak and a root beer float! Omg! They were amazing! Milkshakes looked gorgeous too although I didn't try one.

Love the real burgers in this diner, burritos are excellent too, sweets are traditional American diner style. I've almost had all of them, but then they change the menu before I quite manage it. The staff top up the coffee, just like in the USA. Agree place to break your journey, but it is only accessible from A19 by vehicle,... More

Came here with my husband and 5 year old twins. Was breakfast stopping point on a long journey. The lads got crayons and sheets to draw with straight away. Ordering wasn't rushed and food arrived hot and was really tasty. Bonus was that one of the kids ate free. Free coffee refill, and the server was lovely. My son thought... More

Had a really good double cheese burger, fries and onion rings with some "proper" strawberry milk shakes. My son had a burrito, which he enjoyed. The service was as quick as expected as everything is cooked to order. Was too full to try any of the desserts! So if your on the A19 and in the area and hungry it's... More

Took the kids after sports training over the weekend. Some of the meals were ok, others were burned. What 10 year old wants burned toast and the bottom of their egg black? Used to like it here but it seems to not be at the same standard as it used to be, we've given it s couple of tries on... More

Very nice place, quite and not overcrowded at the evening. Best milkshakes we tried ever, highly recommend. Burger is OK, little dry, but not break overall impression. Worth visit.

I use this place a good deal, and this review is now long overdue - and deserved. I always enjoy eating here. The menu is varied enough for my needs, and excellent value for money. How good to have your coffee cup filled without having to pay again! Well done. I love the American-style decor and, even better, the 50s... More

On the way back we usually go to the KFC or the MacDonald for our breakfast. This time however was different. My associate said he was interested in try the OK Diner on the A19. I was hesitant for obvious reasons. However, nothing ventured nothing gained I overheard once so I relaxed myself. We arrived, out the car and into... More
