    I love this place! My usual go-to is a cheeseburger and chilli cheese fries. But there's plenty of other choices. The breakfast is to die for. 😍

    Can be recommended for breakfast as well. Fulfilling plates.

    Decent burger, good fries, good beer selection... Look of a classic dinner but pretending and pricey.

    Nice place overall, but the meat was overcooked and wouldn't come back for the staff (rude and ignorant).

    Always great for a chat and some food. Nice atmosphere always. Usually good for milkshakes but they need to use real Snickets bars for their milkshakes! :)

    Barely anyone here on a Friday lunchtime, so it's easy to get seats

    As usual, great food and poor service. In every Diner I've visited the staff look miserable and are quite rude or abrupt.

    Brilliant food! I haven't had a bad meal here. Always end up being too full for a dessert

    Bring your own napkins! The itty bitty non absorbent ones they have are a bit of a joke.

    Wow. Only had a milkshake but it was amazing. Chocolate with peanut butter. Had actual chocolate chips in it! Enough for two people though, so recommend sharing unless you're up for a challenge!

    Personally I think this is the best Diner in London. I've been to them all but this has the friendliest staff and the best food.

    Just four words to pronounce for the best milkshake combo ever: vanilla, peanut butter and malt.

    Spoke to an honest/disgruntled waiter, tap beer is now non-existent as the owners don't think it's profitable enough, waiters don't get the mandatory tip. This place is beginning to suck.

    Not bad, expensive for what it is - greasy spoon beats it hands down. Service perfectly fine, although it is added on the bill automatically.

    The alcoholic milkshakes are amazing but the Banana and Peanut Butter ones are really refreshing and delicious. Wow

    Islington branch: terrible, surly service, burnt onion rings, thirty minute wait until shake arrived, rudest wait staff encountered in ages. Disappinting experience: will never go back.

    A bit pricy for what you get but we didn't have any problems with the staff. Free wifi and power points too, so good for meetings.

    There are better burgers just down the road which actually come on plates. Still free coffee refills are a boon.

    Great staff, but a corn beef hash was never going to be good was it? Fiancee's burger was great though
