First things first: The waiters don't keep the discretionary service charge. Get it removed from your bill and tip them directly. Incredibly poor that the money goes for their uniform and training!?!?! There is a car park which is perfectly fine. The milkshakes are large and very tasty. I was billed £5 for a banana milkshake when the menu says... More

Really disappointed as received poor service despite having a child with disabilities. We had been coming here for years. Service has often been slow but friendly, so forgiven. However, policy changed now and they have stopped serving food outside. I asked why and no reason given. I suspect cost. I explained we had travelled to get here and my nephew... More

Stopped by here on the way to Sevenoaks and the food was delicious !!! We were fortunate enough to served by Josh the supervisor who kindly got us seated by the window and he was very friendly towards us. He gave us tips about the local area and where he recommended and this was on top of the quick service... More

I have passed this place frequently and often promised myself I would pop in for a good old fry up. From the outside it looks good with easy parking and plenty of space. The interior is very American diner which looks great...sadly that's where the comparisons stop, if only the service mirrored similar diners like Denny's etc...in the US. Whilst... More

A colleague and i stopped here on a whim for breakfast and was very pleasently surprised by the food, service was prompt and the morning supervisor Taylor was absolutely on point. We were working close by and discovered a 1.5hr tailback on the M25 so decided to drop in for dinner before heading home, our morning experience was topped and... More

Eleven of us came for lunch to celebrate a 70th birthday. Had booked table in advance and were given a U shaped table near the juke box. Service was excellent and all the staff were very helpful and friendly (even joining in singing Happy Birthday). Billie-Jo was in the background making sure everything ran smoothly for us. Food was good... More

Went here for breakfast on Mother's Day organised by our son for his mum. He had reserved a table given it was Mother's Day and was told they could only fit us in at 9am. Fair enough they are obviously busy but when we got there the place wasn't even half full so not sure what that was all about.... More

Exceptionally clean and staff very helpful. We had the room on the top floor and the bathroom was the size of a bedroom. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The only downside was the lift wasn't working. A bit out of the way but as we were only staying for one night it was fine for us

Told another waiter who then put teas on table. After the wait for breakfast had then had to ask another waiter for the items that was missing from my set breakfast. Overpriced... More

We visit our grandchildren in the Sevenoaks area and therefore have tried numerous hotels. On this occasion we stayed at the 7 Hotel Diner. The price is a bit high, but if you ring them direct, you can get a better deal. The rooms are small, but amazingly well designed, so our suitcases all fitted in ok. The only down... More
