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.

Serious serious woo date material, yummiest food ever, and a cinema next door with leather chairs and beds and a bar that serves beer and hotdogs, what else could you ask for? 👊

The service was exceptional. I have a food allergy and the chef came out and patiently went through the menu and was incredibly helpful. The food was delicious.

We had burgers. The food came very quickly and was cooked to perfection. Good value, good service. The restaurant gets very busy and tends to be noisy. Overall good experience though.

Great mix of food and drinks options. The food was tasty and quick. Our waitress incredibly friendly, but a little forgetful! Not that we minded and we had a great night.

We were meeting visiting friends and this was convenient to where they were staying. Last time we were there it was wonderful. This time, not so much. The service was very slow and disorganised. We waited ages for drinks. Starters were given to the wrong people. Nice ambiance, pleasant (albeit slow) staff, food was ok, but the shine has worn off.

Prices way too high overall. Salads in particular are tiny and wildly overpriced.

Excellent service and friendly. We enjoyed our meals. The fried chicken was Asian flavored. The chicken Caesar was good but seemed like roasted chicken not a grilled breast. Definitely worth a visit.

Unfortunately it wasn’t the best experience. I had made a booking for 7pm and on arrival we were told the person was about to leave. There was some issue (not restaurants fault) and that person refused to leave so we were not seated until after 7.30. So had to wait and when we were finally seated our orders were not taken for another 20 mins. Understand the situation but give. it was nearly an hour, a round of drinks would have been appreciated. Having a service charge added to the bill was a bit cheeky.
Food was tasty, and a good vibe, but I probably wouldn’t go back

My husband and I took our grandchildren and our experience was terrific! They ate all their lunch minus the bit that dropped to the floor. And the manager offered a replacement hot dog for th one Mimi dropped.
My kale salad and cheese burger were delicious!
Love this restaurant!

This place was awesome. Great menu, great food, great cocktails, for not a lot of money. The staff was absolutely the friendliest anywhere, and the historic setting was fascinating. If I lived in London, which I wish I did, this would be one of my regular haunts without a doubt.

Had dinner before going next door to the Electric Cinema. Being a Saturday night it was very busy and very noisy but the food was excellent and service exemplary.

I haven't been to this restaurant for few years. Unfortunately, the place feels quite grubby, the food not as amazing as it was before and the service was debatable. Though the waitress was very attentive at the start, however towards the end of the meal it was difficult to grab her attention, but this was probably down to the fact that they seemed rather under staffed. Previously, I had always had good food and dining experiences here, but now it's lost that buzz it use to have along with the quality food. For some perhaps the standard of food was great, but quite frankly one could eat the same quality food in one of the medium end restaurant food chains or a bog standard gastro pub. Furthermore, the acoustics where we were sitting were so bad, we couldn't hear ourselves talk especially with the adjacent noisy dinners sitting nearby. I don't think I'll be rushing back here in the near future.

Mozzarella sticks and the artichoke dip as starters were really good. However, for the main I ordered a honey fried chicken to share with my little son, it was a surprise they were very spicy as nowhere on the menu indicated they were spicy. A note should be added.

A great place to eat. The service is great and believe it or not it is an authentic 1950s American diner menu. Limited but fabulous

Excellent as always. Food is simple and delicious and the atmosphere is always chilled.
It is a diner and the quality of the food is excellent for a diner. Don’t expect gourmet/ Gastro food and you will be very very happy.

It doesn't pretend to be anything other than a diner inspired eatery. The menu is simple.
I was impressed by their attention and knowledge about coeliac requirements.
It is very loud. We had trouble having a conversation across a table with 3 of us.

I'd say just about the best burger I've eaten in any burger joint. Also had the chilli cheese frieswhich were superb.
