Helen's Diner is gaining a very favourable reputation in the local area so I thought I would take a look. Situated on Hitchcocks Business Park, which is off the B3181 road which goes from J27 of the M5 south to Willand and beyond. A clear sign directs you off the road and gives directions to the generous sized car park next to the diner. Think forest wooden cabin or Goldilocks and the thee bears and you will have an idea what it looks like. Very neat and tidy outside with a wheelchair ramp and a lovely garden with shrubs, rose bushes and tables made from large wooden cable drums. Inside it is neat, clean and a blaze of colour from the table cloths to the wall decoration. The menu is comprehensive but favours the burger, chicken, sausage and chips type of meal, all at very reasonable prices. The all day breakfast for £4.99 is splendid value, cooked to order and brought to your table - love the tea as well with not a hint of a chlorine taste. Well spaced out tables so don't feel on top of anyone else. The staff are extremely friendly and the owner ensures that your meal is cooked to your requirements. You can pre-order your meal by phone and local delivery is available on orders over £10. I will be back as there are so many items on the menu that I need to try. I have two observations: I would prefer to see caps on the red and brown sauce bottles and my wife has commented that a mirror in the ladies toilet area would be appreciated. Don't miss this oasis if you are anywhere near Willand, particularly if you are a family and need a break from driving.
