Called here for breakfast as heard it was good - don't agree as we thought it was terrible . Even though the place was empty the service was appalling , had to ask to be seated on a clean seat , not very good value and no resemblance to an American breakfast at all , the pancakes were like shoe...

I popped in with my son as we were just passing. we didn't have much money on us but managed to order lots of small items so cheaply that it was like a full course lunch.

We stopped off at an OK Diner at the start of our trip north from Peterborough on Saturday morning. We enjoyed a breakfast on Saturday morning and a nice, hot pot of tea on the return journey. Great rockabilly classic tracks. Merry Christmas OK Diner!

We called in here on a cold Sunday afternoon after we couldn't find McDonalds!!!! We were greeted and seated quickly and ordered our drinks. Coffee and coke - both with free refills. I ordered an American breakfast which promised crispy bacon which I love. My husband ordered a burger and fries. His burger was pretty big and he said it... More

The kids menu was very limited, but eventually we did get sorted with pancakes for my daughter and a 'lush' bacon sandwich for one of the boys. Yankee Doodle Dandy's for me and my other son. Bacon was a bit grey and unappetising, without the crunch of crispy bacon. No matter tho, it still tasted ok. The rest of the... More

Great American food in an American themed diner, staff friendly and food good. Good value if you have kids as kids eat free with adults eating here. It's a great place to stop if traveling southbound on the A19.

This place is a little gem if you like kitch 50s style decor. It's adorable. The food is also based around 50s USA diners with milk shakes being served in tall glasses with the excess in the metal shakers used in USA in the 50s. Speaking of Milkshakes they are blooming gorgeous. Our fave is the chocolate one. The pancakes... More
