Adjacent to one of the oldest cinemas in London and downstairs from the Electric House, The Diner opens at 8am for breakfast, switches to the all-day menu at 12pm and keeps serving until late at night (you can drop in for dinner until midnight Friday and Saturday or 10pm Sunday).

We also keep serving at the bar until 1am Thursday to Saturday – stocked with 18 different draught and bottled beers and ales, wines and strong new takes on classic cocktails. The Diner is all about unfussy combinations of the best ingredients; quick, friendly service and food that is sent straight from the kitchen as and when it’s ready. There’s booth and bar seating, and a specially chosen soundtrack played from the Diner’s reel-to-reel machine.

Very friendly helpful service. The chicken and sea bass mains were excellent as were the side orders of sweet potato fries and brocoli. The offers on good quality wines also hit the spot. Overall a very pleasurable post movie at The Electric experience

It is a nice venue and the staff are nice. The food was good - well presented and tasty BUT the portions are stingy for the price. I got poached eggs and avocado which was two eggs but on one small bit of bread. My friend got the waffles but only one scoop of ice cream.

As always, fun ambience with attentive service.

The food disappointed me this time. Vegan burger was horrendously overpriced - £13 for a very simple burger with no chips? Food came out almost suspiciously quickly - within 5 minutes of ordering?

Would come back for drinks but would maybe skip having dinner here again.

Food came really quickly but it was all lukewarm. I had to chase my coffee order after waiting ages to find it hadn’t been done, and I had to order it again. Food tasted good but it being warm wasn’t acceptable for all of our 4 orders. Good music and atmosphere. Had to ask for the bill twice too. Needs improvement.

We sat at the back which had a speaker directly above our heads. Very difficult to have a conversation with one another as the music was loud.

I have been charged for a bavette steak, which was just 5 small pieces £18. It was mainly chips. Absolutely not a good value for money.

The staff were efficient and quick, led to our tables immediately. The hostess and waitresses were superb and very friendly. The food of very good quality. The ambience with the candle on the table and low lights, with music playing give a relaxed but fun / casual vibe that is sometimes needed.
Full meal and dessert for two was near £100, with alcohol too isn’t bad at all - depending on your position.
The place was clean, bustling and vibrant. The food excellent.

Food is always nice, service was a little bit stressful, the menu prices were not updated which we mentioned and it was fixed, however the approach of the restaurant manger when fixing it could have been better.

This was a spectacular dining experience on every level. A diner made for great conversation in beautiful old fashioned booths. This restaurant oozes class, and the people who run it are warm, genuine and brilliant at what they do.
As to the food, it is out of this world. The steak and chips so perfect I want to go back today. From what I saw every dish is produced to this standard. I will be going back soon and to the cinema next door again.

Great solid place for a meal with friends. Prefer the hard copy menus which were given once asked for. Felt a bit pricey for the four of us espmworhout desert but perhaps it’s our fault for adding cocktails. Which were great!!!

The “all day” menu items were not on the menu until 5pm. Ingredients from the items on the menu were missing. And then the wrong food was brought to the table. Whilst I had heard great things about this place, it was all rather mediocre.

The website said that the all day menu and brunch menu would be available. At 11:00 only the breakfast menu was available - so limited choice. However, the food was good.
