We stopped here for milkshakes which were amazing, and then went back later for burgers. The service was good, the food was great and the secret TARDIS in the restrooms was a massive plus for us. The restaurant was used as a filming location for Doctor Who, so it was thrilling knowing we were eating burgers where The Doctor, River... More

Visited here tonight before going to the cinema spent about £28 on a root beer, cherry coke, Rebel Burger, chilli con carne cheese fries, BBQ burger and cheese fries. The highlight of the meal was the root beer. Frozen fries, you can have from Iceland with a dolmio cheese sauce on the top, could have sworn burgers were from Iceland... More

You know your meal was terrible when the best thing about it was the root beer... I'm surprised Eddie hasn't retired on what I can only imagine is the massive markup he's raking in off each purchase. Burgers looked like they were from Iceland, bun was rock hard, replacement was soggy. Chilli cheese chips need to be renamed to hot... More

Nice decore in the restaurant, food really poor, it is also bit pricey for what you get. Burger nothing special probably I would get better in Burger king. Onion rings we ordered were burned too very dark colour. For me it was expensive fast food Definately I wont come back

If you like well cooked good food come here. The burgers are excellent and the fries are hot and crispy. The milkshakes taste superb! Loved our visit with great 50s music too.

Staff are rude and spend most of the time on phones thinking they are hidden, Food was way over priced for a disgusting cheap burger!

We visited the diner for lunch after a trip to the Dr Who Experience, on the recommendation of a friend. It was worth the experience for the over-the-top decor alone and we enjoyed the Dr Who filming images that flashed up on the screens now and then! On a weekday lunchtime we had no problem getting seated and service was... More

Went here just before going to the Theatre. Only had an hour so wanted some quick Chow. Food was quick and plenty of it. I couldn't eat all my steak and onion sandwich, too much of it, For a quick dinner it was good

First off we were impressed with the decor and the whole layout of this place. After doing a long car journey we were looking for a nice lunch but something different to the norm. We were promptly seated in quite a empty restaurant with fast service, I wasn't sure if I wanted the hot sauce on my hotdog but the... More

Went here expecting to be served a big fat juicy burger instead got a thin tasteless substitute. You'd be better off going to Burger King you would definitely get a much taster burger and it would cost less.
