I attended this restaurant with 3 friends. We were the only people in the entire restaurant. Despite this, our order of 3 burgers and one hot dog took over 45 minutes to arrive. The bun disintegrated as I tried to eat my tiny hot dog,...More

We went in late one sunday evening... just about still open... quite a small restaurant. Staff are friendly and welcoming. They were running low on a few things but we were informed of this before we ordered. Food is good, portions are a decent size....More

I have had food 3 times from this place and it's the best American style restaurant I've been to in the uk. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful and attentive. I would recommend this place to everyone who loves food.

I have been there three times the first time was fine, nothing spectacular but not bad. The following two times were poor at best, burnt food uninterested staff and no mention of an apology when I did complain.
