Warm friendly American style diner. Red plastic and chrome furnishing with pics of Elvis and Beatles as decoration. Really nice big crispy chips, decent size burger and choice of pizzas. In centre of town near car park.

Very good food, unfortunately for my personal preferences, there was too much use of cheese sauce. However, the burger and the malts were really excellent. Good quality meet in the burger and I would recommend visiting here just for that.

Amazing food and very friendly staff. I can't get enough of their cheese sauce and milkshakes. Prices however are a bit too high although they have very good offers!

Staff are brilliant! Very friendly will do anything that is asked. Food is good value for money but can be greasy and tenders over cooked, but food is good quality.
