We popped into the diner for a chilled out Friday night. The restaurant is family run by people who clearly know and love their food. We had pulled pork nachos to start - with hunks of sticky, BBQ pork and all the trimmings (lush!). We both opted for the Trio Burger for main. This is a big meal at a great price. More of the lovely pulled pork, a good well cooked beef burger and what has to be the most impressive coated chicken burger I have EVER had. It had a deep fried flavoursome coating that I find hard to put into words. We chatted with the owners at the end and they indeed had been to the Deep South of America, knew it well and had family connections there. Make sure you give it a go

We visited here after seeing it mentioned on a coeliac Facebook page. We would not expect to be able to eat somewhere like this and we're delighted with the excellent range of gluten free food available with the majority of the menu being suitable. Staff were clued up and very friendly, with great service even though they were busy. We had a gf beef burger and a southern fried chicken burger which were both great. Special mention however for the awesome onion rings. Will definitely be visiting again and promoting to other coeliacs.

We visited after seeing the positive reviews on Trip advisor. Portions are generous and I was surprised to see a slimming world menu! Very good idea. Fab service, very attentive. The milkshake was amazing!

Food was really good here. Found it by accident and decided to give it a try. The owners daughter is so polite and helpful and has time for you to get you the food that's right for you. My boys got spoilt here with desert and milkshake( +1.50) being added to their meals for an already great price. Everything we had was amazing and doesn't taste like you'd expect.love it :) The fried chicken is boneless and the milkshakes are something else.
