We had visited AJ's before and had enjoyed it so decided to return. The staff are lacklustre and surly, there were no menus on the table, no welcome despite it being dead on a Sat lunchtime, the food was cheap frozen food and tasted like the fat needed changing. We complained that my chicken burger was burnt and the waitress... More

Well after walking in and deciding to go and sit upstairs where a few other customers were.I walked by a waitress who completely ignored me, So I found an empty table and sat down.... More

Took the grandchildren 12 & 16 for lunch as an alternative to the ubiquitous McD's. They loved it. Great decor, Retro music, excellent food and lots of it. Service was prompt and polite, with lunch for 4 costing less than £25. Infinitely better than the mass produced rubbish.

We went to this diner and was ok. The food was quite basic in terms of the burger puns were standard buns, the fries had a bit of an after taste when the oil has not been changed for a while. The waitress was very good and she did well as she was on her own and the chef. Vegetarian... More

Fancied somthing local and came across their website. Thought we'd give it a go. Was not dissapointed. Was very quiet when we arrived late lunch time so thought hmmm? But from the decor to the menu choices,the service, quality of food and the bill,it was well worth it. Will definately be returning and have asked my teenage daughters to recommend... More

True american diner experiance, very nicely presented. The food was cooked fresh to order and the menu was extensive. Very friendly welcoming staff. Only one downside was the toilet facilities that could do with some modernising. Very good for birthdays ect as they can accommodate large groups.

Slowest service imaginable have waited over one hour to get a simple burger or a breakfast as it seems only 1 meal can be cooked at a time. Food is reasonable it's simply the time it takes to get it which is why I no longer use the cafe.

Before I begin, I just want to say, my visit here was some time ago now, and I do have a number of friends who have nothing but praise for this place.. however, MY experience was that the waiting staff really couldn't be bothered to serve us even though there were just the 2 of us and they were virtually...
