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...

I love this diner, everything about it is 50's and one of the more authentic diners your will find around Wellingborough. The decor is excellent and varied, the diner is eye catching and the bar is particularly groovy when lit. I've never eaten here but I've had a plain milkshake which was scrumptious and have taken part in the Jive... More

I love the 50's style and free juke box! The food is nice and the staff friendly but my only bug bear is that in 3 visits they have always had no key lime pie! For an American style diner it's a shame they can't quite manage their stock but other than that I loved it.

We have been here many times now and never been disappointed. The staff are so friendly, you feel like you have known them for ages. The place is clean, easy to get to and plenty of parking. Good menu and the food is very very good. You do have to allow some time though, everything is cooked from scratch so... More

We visited here for breakfast - a bizarre location on a trading estate however impressive with what they have done with what I guess was a factory unit at some point. Staff were friendly enough but the breakfast was just OK. All the food very average although priced fairly. They do various dancing evenings and have a bar and I... More

This sort of thing is really frustrating. You order sundaes, one with nuts, the other without nuts. After some 10 mins, the waitress returns to check which way round the nuts order is. Fair enough. Another 10 mins later the sundaes arrive, neither of which contain nuts. The reason? We have run out of nuts!! Give me strength. Know your... More
