On the way back we usually go to the KFC or the MacDonald for our breakfast. This time however was different. My associate said he was interested in try the OK Diner on the A19. I was hesitant for obvious reasons. However, nothing ventured nothing gained I overheard once so I relaxed myself. We arrived, out the car and into... More

I dropped in here for lunch on the way down the motorway so was a little hungry and thirsty. After reviewing the menu which is pretty American diner-ish, I decided on the breakfast wrap - scrambled egg, mushrooms and bacon in a wrap, plus a coffee. On the plus side, the unlimited coffee was appreciated as the cups are small... More

Tried this place on the off-chance it would be a really authentic american experience. It was, as many mock american diners are, a very watered down version of the real thing. Went for a chilli-dog with cheesy Garlic bread. Dog came out in good time, but garlic bread was somewhat delayed. When it did come out, the bread was hotter... More

The food was OK. Prices were a bit steep for what you got. Service was absolutely superb. Fast and polite. Milkshakes are decent.

Great food, amazing music and exceptional company. Staff are friendly and polite, would bend over backwards to help out. 👍 Just wish they wouldn't come over to ask how everything was just as you put a bite of food in your mouth lol

Called here for breakfast as heard it was good - don't agree as we thought it was terrible . Even though the place was empty the service was appalling , had to ask to be seated on a clean seat , not very good value and no resemblance to an American breakfast at all , the pancakes were like shoe...
