“Great burger, huge choice and good value”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

I came to Ed's the first time and didn't know what to expect.

The place is huge and loaded with big groups of people. We have been in a group of 10 too. When we got the menue it takes a while to go through all the different style of burgers and hard to choose from.
Service was friendly and efficient, food came out the kitchen in a decent amount of time considering the huge 3 story location packed with people. Burgers were great and cooked the way u wanted them, the pounder really massive and everybody enjoyed the food. Portions are big so come hungry!
The only downside was the noise/acustic!! Difficult to have a decent conversation with the other end of the table without screaming to each other!! Wouldn't come here for a romantic dinner though

“Burger much?”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

Every so often we feel the need for truly epic burgers. We head off to Eds and are never disappointed. The range of burgers in various sizes are truly inspired. Chilli cheese fries, biltong carpaccio and other amazing treats invariably sees us dragging our laden tummies out the door. Not fine dining mind you, but a rocking flashback to the days when diners were the place to be and be seen. Good fun and always good value. Goooooooo there

“Great burgers”
Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

Friday night & we all wanted burgers so we tried Eds Diner for the first time - we"ll be back soon! We hadn't made a reservation and so had to wait 10 mins for a table but we took this as a good sign, once in the decor and atmosphere were great. Fantastic choice of burgers, all of ours were cooked perfectly and came swiftly. Good service throughout and great value for money. Lots of other tasty treats were spied coming out of the kitchen which we'll try next time.

“From the days in Hatfield - still a favourite”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

If you feel like massive portions, good value for money combined with quality and taste get to Eds! Avoid the Pounder unless you want to take a 'doggy bag' home. Great milkshakes!
