We had the burger and it was absolutely disgusting!! We ordered the starter and it arrived after the main. Very cheap ingredients and useless staff!

We came here after a recommendation as we were staying in the nearby Best Western. There breakfast was £10. The Bungalow Diners £5. A great decision. It may not look much on the outside but inside it is unashamedly a well styled American styled diner, complete with juke box. Its clearly been recently refurbished and it is clean and fresh....

We had a really lovely breakfast this morning, good quality ingredients' were evidenced by the lovely meaty sausages. It was very busy but the staff were pleasant and efficient all this and only £5.00 absolutely brilliant value for money.

Visited this diner a few times now, took the children this time and they enjoyed it very much, decor feels very American and food is delicious, menu has lost to choose from and service very friendly and quick. Large carpark too.

I have to say, I do love the burgers here. But this place has been creeping up in price, it's not a cheap eats place any more. But it is a good eats place and teh food always tastes good. I've eaten here a number of times in the last year, and there's two things that need to improve.... One,... More

Every time I go past or pop in for a bite to eat there's always people there. The staff are friendly, the service is speedy and the food is lovely, every visit. With a great price to match and a classic diner feel that's very 50s, it's overall a great place to eat.

Retro style American diner, recently revamped with new menu too (freshly made food and brilliant variety). Clean, friendly atmosphere that also hosts many car and motorbike shows. We also do kids parties, general outside catering and hire out the premises for private parties.
