Karen's is an interactive diner and an absurdly fun experience. At Karen's 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....

    We had a fabulous time. You need to know what this 'themed' evening is about before going (look on social media) Wouldn't tkae kids to it maybe 16+ The staff were great actors and very funny too. We really enjoyed it. The food was also extremely good and depsite the funny nature of the themed evening, they took allergies very seriously and did great Gluten Free and Dairy Free options.

    Food ok ( made a bad choice and didn’t like the sauce on my burger, nothing wrong with it just personal choice but spoiled my meal ) . A great experience so would recommend for the experience but overpriced for what it was and the amount of swearing was unnecessary. Could be rude without having to swear so much .

    Was very intimidated when we walked in, and didn’t quite expect as much swearing but we enjoyed it and we weren’t expecting the food to be any good after reading reviews but we all enjoyed everything we ordered, overall I would recommend but just be warned it’s not for the faint hearted and if you do t like swearing then avoid

    Was a little worried about our visit,not quite sure how far they would go ! No need to worry,quite brutal at times but very funny too,lots of swearing,hand gestures and rudeness but i never felt intimidated as such,had to get up and do a bit of dancing but as only other girls in restaurant it was ok. The insults were fast and furious but we had a real good laugh and its definitely an experience i would recommend

    We decided to give Karen's Diner a go for group booking of 13 for a lunchtime birthday treat. First impressions were that the actual restaurant location was a bit odd, and that the size of the interior was a lot smaller than expected, and smaller than most MacDonalds, KFC or Burger King outlets. The food was really tasty, and the portion sizes were good, however, the prices are higher than similar venues, and overall we didn't think it was value for money. Burgers range from £16 to £20, then the sides are £4.50, and a bowl of 14 chicken wings is £17!! The one excellent part of the experience is the staff. They are fully in character 100% of the time, and Fizzy who was assigned to us, was hilarious, rude, offensive, honest, direct, and very intelligent with equal measure. Her conversations with all members of the party were funny to hear, and her memory for names and things we'd mentioned meant she could return to conversations that had taken place 90 minutes before to add a new layer of insults, and make it even funnier. The staff try to involve diners in mini games, which our group were invested in, but there was another large group who were not bothered about being included, and I'm not sure they actually really wanted to be there, so that made some of the games fail. Once you've experienced Karen's once, there's nothing more to see, so it's not currently a place you would ever go back to, so they need to develop a way of attracting repeat business. To summarise: Strange location Restaurant too small Prices too high Atmosphere lacking due to other guests Food very tasty Amazing staff

    Had a fab time for my son’s 16th birthday. Laugh a minute! Staff were rude :) but so lovely! Food was so good- top quality burgers. I don’t think the birthday cake package is worth the money but that’s just some constructive feedback. We had a great time and will definitely return! Thank you

    Not enough rudeness was some children there so they may have turned it down a bit for that but at the end of the day if the parents want to take the children there they should know and the staff should still be as ruled as any other time
