The Diner Camden

Squaremeal Review of The Diner Camden ?

As its up-front moniker suggests, this chain re-imagines the classic American diner of a million movie scenes through a London lens, with red vinyl booths, vintage car pictures and booming 60s’ music offset by dim lighting. The large menu majors on US staples such as hefty hot dogs, enticing burgers and all-day breakfasts, in addition to roadside classics such as meat loaf and mash. Burgers are generously thick, but lack the tender and juicy ‘wow’ factor; comforting sides, however, cannot be missed – try gooey chilli-cheese fries or crisp beer-battered onion rings. Warm pecan pie with whipped cream ends an inevitably calorific meal on a high. For drinks, look to the full-on cocktail bar and sizeable wine list. The Diner recreates the archetypal experience lovingly, apart from the service: the occasional ‘have a nice day’ would go a long way.

Editor's pick The Diner does what it says on the tin. Although it is tapping into the zeitgeist of London's love affair with all things beef, it isn't a pretender to the throne of Holy Burgerness. It's not claiming to have the best in town or that you should queue round the block for one or pay £20 for the privilege. This instead is a place to go when you want good old-fashioned comforting fare in a retro atmosphere at a price which won't break the bank. It's going for authenticity with an enormous menu which...
