Have been here twice recently, once for dinner with some work colleagues and then for lunch with my family. Really lovely food and reasonably priced. Will definitely go again.

We had the burger and it was absolutely disgusting!! We ordered the starter and it arrived after the main. Very cheap ingredients and useless staff!

We came here after a recommendation as we were staying in the nearby Best Western. There breakfast was £10. The Bungalow Diners £5. A great decision. It may not look much on the outside but inside it is unashamedly a well styled American styled diner,...More

Retro style American diner, recently revamped with new menu too (freshly made food and brilliant variety). Clean, friendly atmosphere that also hosts many car and motorbike shows. We also do kids parties, general outside catering and hire out the premises for private parties.
