Stopped here for a meal mid afternoon on a Friday. Not very busy so plenty of tables available. Warm welcome from a pleasant waitress who showed me to a table and quickly brought a cup of tea. It’s an American Themed Diner with an emphasis...More

Called in for lunch for the first time today, around 1:30. Quite a few in, got a seat straight away. Nice staff. Chose the Philly Steak Sandwich, which was shredded steak with peppers and BBQ sauce, with melted cheese on top. It came with fries...More

I called in on impulse while passing, after last year spending six weeks touring Canada and West Coast USA. This OK Diner just looked the part, and provided us with a really excellent hamburger and fries. The service was just right, and I really find...More

We took the grandchildren for our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised as the club sandwhiches were surprisingly good and reasonably priced. The service was good, but the music was a little loud for my taste. Just had to try one of their sundaes...More

The Ok Diner is a fun setting for burgers, hotdogs and shakes - all surprisingly good and well priced. The service was fine and the food arrived swiftly but it would have been better if she’d had a bit more enthusiasm in her delivery.

This was an unplanned stop on the A19 and we were quite happy. I had a warm BLT which was served with chips (very good) and coleslaw. My other half had a Yankee Doodle Dandy which he declared was 'very nice'. This was at mid-day...More

Stopped in the way down from Northumberland. I found it good but not everyone didn't. Pretty good value and the staff are really friendly. It's a service station at the side of the A19 but it's much better than McDonald's or Burger King etc.

This is a fun place to stop when traveling and is in my opinion better than McDonald's ect. When we visited staff weren't fast when it came to ordering more drinks and it wasn't particularly busy. Food was good value for money.
