Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fun theming, good food, great service. We really enjoyed our lunch here. The staff were helpful and efficient. It's a small menu but we all found something we enjoyed (family group of 6). The milkshakes with alcohol were especially delicious! The decor was really well...put together and everywhere was very clean.More

Absolutely loved the decor! It’s so retro and brings a happy vibe to the place. The team are so nice and friendly too! The drinks are a little expensive in comparison to what I usually pay, however, don’t let that put you off.

Ordered 2 meals waitress got confused she laughed it off not very bright. 1 meal came ribs over cooked from microwave £17 down drain ten minutes later had to ask were other meal was didn't get a reply eventually after one meal had been eaten...my meal came out no apology very rude and ignorant. No wonder you have to pay as you order because you would walk out before your meal came. Not a clean place plenty of cobwebs one place to avoidMore

We were impressed by the cleanliness and friendly staff. The food was lovely and filling. Price was very reasonable. Surroundings interesting especially to music history fans.

10/10 for quality, service & cleanliness! Well worth a visit for your breakfast in this diner, well portioned at a fair price & not left waiting for your order. 2 visits and waited less than 2 mins each time. Friendly staff and great easy atmosphere....Well done to all the staff! 👍👍👍More

Ordered nachos- just crisps with the smallest sprinkling of cheese and jalapeños. No cheese sauce or sour cream as advertised. Calamari was nice but missing sweet chilli sauce. Ribs were ok but just microwaved. Sign says Home cooked Meals?!? Young female waitress was lacking people...skills and everything seemed like a problem.More

Went in last night before a show, looked nice and clean but the food was not great, both the fries and the burgers were reheats, we ate the burgers as we were hungry and in a hurry so didn’t have time to wait for them...to sort it or for us to find somewhere else to eat. I paid the bill and mentioned to the waitress and the supervisor what the issue was and they didn’t disagree that the food was reheats they just looked a bit embarrassed 😥 the place looks great and the staff are friendly but it’s all just dressing when the food is that bad. Won’t go back and wouldn’t recommend it.More

Poor.. all the food and majority of the drinks are bought from Aldi so shouldn’t be advertised as home cooked food. The older man got our order wrong and shouted at my husband in front of other customers, instead of apologising and rectifying this like...most places he proceeded to argue with my very laid back husband. He asked him to get the order he wrote down - 10 minutes later he came back and said you didn’t order it with a half hearted apology. Was very embarrassing however it did make me giggle. The older lady was very nice and said to eat the Mac dog on the house and she would get the chilli burger he had ordered to take away. I wouldn’t recommend this place at all. Also the menu advertised outside is different to the one they give you inside, due to the current restrictions most places have smaller menus but the prices seem to be all £1 more which is false advertising.More

This place is incredible! Being a big '50s/60s fan, I was excited to come here, and it didn't disappint. The atmosphere, the records on the walls, it was so good. The food, oh my word, amazing! I ordered the homemade steak pie which was to...die for! Beautiful pastry, tender pieces of steak, served with homemade gravy. My hubby had burger and chips and he loved it too. It was great value. Many compliments to the chef, the food was absolutely superb! My only little finicky snag is that they were playing 80s music (which I love) but I was expecting 50s/60s, but that's by the by. I just can't recommend this place enough! Don't bother going anywhere else. You won't be disappointed!More

There was 4 adults and 3 children under 7, nice enough people but took a long time to be served, waited 30 minutes after ordering to be told none of the food we ordered was available. Ordered 2 pints of dark fruits and got two...pints from CANS!! Waited 40 minutes for the 3 children’s milkshakes to come - asked where they were three times. Very underwhelmed about our visit although the staff were nice.More
