Karens is an interactive diner and an absurdly fun experience. At Karens you will be greeted and waited upon by rude waiters who in return are expecting you to give it full Karen. A place where you can complain until the cows come home because we literally don't care.

You can expect good food, good fun and a dining experience like you've never had before. Let us know if it's your birthday, if your name is Karen and for the love of Karen don't ask to speak to the manager....

Please note our restaurant has a minimum spend, this is £20.00 PP and is management discretion.

    Karen's diner is a fantastic dining experience. All the staff are horribly rude all the time and never come out of character and are brilliant in what they do. I don't think I've ever been so scared to ask for sauce. If you plan on going to Karen's diner. I suggest going with an open mind and go along with the whole experience.

    Brilliant time, really funny and was my friend’s birthday main event which was great fun. Our waitress was hilarious. Only thing we thought was the kitchen could do with a better extractor as we all came out smelling of chip fat. But the laughs made up for that Thank you And F off Rob

    What an experience came all the way from Newcastle mainly for the cube experience however Karen’s diner topped this. The atmosphere is outstanding. So funny and hilarious. Madison what can I say. She is the making of this place and will go far. Somehow I managed at the end to get a small smile from her. Loved every minute being here so much didn’t want to leave it was that good and and a great experience all thanks to Madison thank you for your humour

    It was a very good experience from start to finish. The hats had funny slogans on also the abuse you get in there is funny as hell. Food was amazing and a great team in Karen's. I think the later you go the more abuse they throw at you. Definitely not for the light hearted

    We came here for my son’s 19th birthday 🎂 in the afternoon when it’s meant to be more tame!!!! We laughed non-stop, the language is foul, service is awful, you get insulted and made fun of, ITS BRILLIANT!! 🤩 The experience definitely depends on who you choose to go with, only visit with fun loving people who are up for a laugh, you could see some tables where this wasn’t the case. My friend Sarah had to do a catwalk show for worst dressed and she was so much fun throughout our visit the waiter said she was batshit crazy 🤪 We’d definitely go back, I’d love to experience it at night after this taster!!! Not appropriate for young kids.

    Food was okay. Expensive for what it was. Didn’t know an extra service charge would be added to the bill. Service terrible, as it’s meant to be. Some funny moments, but constant staff insults, directed at one person, went too far. Last time we visited was far funnier, but different staff.

    It's exactly what you would expect, funny atmosphere, I wouldn't say it'd suitable for children. Lots of swearing and inappropriate language used. The service is 'bad' but it's meant to be it's funny and entertaining. Would go again for sure :) Food is good though and good value for money

    It really lives up to the promise! Excellent food, abysmal service! Really great experience just make sure to leave your easily offended nature at the door! We booked for my daughter’s 18th birthday and really enjoyed the whole experience from the terrible greeting from the host to the awful attitude of the wait staff! 10/10 recommend if you don’t mind obscenities and are up for a touch of mild humiliation while eating top notch burgers and delicious cocktails!

    I visited with my sister and our 2 teenage children. Curly Sue was our waitress and she was absolutely hilarious. We belly laughed for the full 90 mins we were there. Would recommend to anyone who doesn’t mind having the p**s taken out of them. We had pizza, burgers and sides and we all enjoyed.

    Great experience with some great burgers. Kelly was out waitress and she played the part brilliant. We loved spin the wheel, got the whole place involved and the atmosphere was brilliant. Yes, you may pay slightly more for the food bill, but remember the staff are entertaining you, you'd pay to watch any for of entertainment so when you combine the food bill and entertainment it is actually very good value, because the staff are amazing. The burgers were brilliant and the best milkshake I've ever tasted. It it definitely something you will remember, talk about and enjoy.

    Fab evening of being verbally abused!!!! Erin our waitress was excellent. The only downside was that there was quite a few food items not available, which made it particularly difficult for one of the members of our party as she had allergies. Would deffo do it again thoug.

    We had read a lot about Karens Diner, so we were curious about what will happen there. it was indeed a nice entertainment, the food was delicious, The service was as expected, especially we became friends with Paul. He gave us the real feeling of being nasty and mean, but in fact was delivering what we expected. Thank you for the nice Sunday lunch. We will be back, when we are in Manchester.
