I wasn't sure I would like the food there but was pleasantly surprised. I had the vegetable lasagne and it was absolutely the most delicious lasagne I have ever tasted. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had asked to be seated next to a window as I don't like being in the middle of too many people, so... More

We visited Buddies yesterday for a late lunch. The restaurant was quiet so we were seated straight away. We skipped starters and went on to mains; I had the Mac and Cheese burger with fries and coleslaw, while the other half had the Mixed Fill. The children had burgers, sausages, fries and corn on the cob. WOW the food was... More

I have to say, this wasn't my first time at a "Buddies" restaurant.. But it was my first time visiting this specific location and it shall also be my last. Service was bad from the moment we stepped in the door. My sister and I stood at the front desk, waiting to be seated.. The place was practically empty, one... More

We stayed next door at the travelodge and had dinner at Buddies. We both had a burger and chips with a choice of salad, coleslaw, corn on the cob or beans. The food came quickly and tasted lovely. The staff were friendly and we had a lovely meal.

He had buffalo wings...his friend, a jumbo frankfurter covered in a sickly cheese sauce..I just had a child's fish fingers( goujons). My goujons were only warm in... More

Took my little boy here for a treat on Sunday, as always the food was amazing (you've got to try the burgers!!) There is a great child's menu, and the added bonus for my train made son is the electric train that goes around the restaurant! Great value for money, food cooked fresh to order, brilliant staff who seemed genuinely... More

Went here after a trip to santa pod. The service was prompt and the staff friendly. We are regulars at buddies in Hockliffe so know what we like. The kids hot dog meal is huge and went down well. The choice of burgers on the adult menu is huge. I usually go for an Elvis and am never disappointed. I'd... More

We decided to try this place for a bite to eat on a recent trip. It was a lunch time so we only wanted a small meal. The prices are high (£7 70 ) for burger and chips. We gave our order and sat outside. 25 mins later as it started to rain we went inside. We had to remind... More
