A little bit of old America

This place has just opened in Worcester and I understand it recreates the old American diner of the 1950's, which, of course the people of Worcestershire have fond memories of.

 

No doubt the prices will not be 1950's but bang up to date.

 

I suppose it can't be any worse than Frankie and Benny's

The folks who live under the boards will welcome an occasional crumb, Bill.
Bill Phillips: This would be the Borrowers perhaps?

Worcester is often a great disappointment to me. There are interesting nooks & corners, the Cathedral is nice, for instance, but a lot of the City is little more than an object lesson in how the post war planners got it wrong. I'm sure this lovely diner will fit in perfectly
Bill Phillips: It was a car showroom before this. no doubt it will flourish as it is opposite the new University campus. The 60s planners wrecked Worcester.
Great POV Bill. It definiteley has a 1950's look!
Bill Phillips: I haven't tried it and am doubtful that i want to!
I have plans to go to New York for a city break next year and high on the itinery is to photograph Amrican diners. Cor blimey great news ... I can now save myself loads of money and just go to Worcester ... yipee
Bill Phillips: Go to New York for the diner....there are some good eating places in Worcester however and a very fine cathedral!
Well i had the same plans as Mr T,looks like a place for a meet up.
Bill Phillips: That's a thought!
I've never been in one of these facsimile American diners although my daughter does quite often in Nottingham.
Bill Phillips: Nor have I Brian. This may be very good

Nice angle for this shot Bill....now get up and dust off your clothesgrin....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha...I was stood on the pavement (sidewalk?)
Nah, that's not a proper American diner - it doesn't look a railway carriage. "Webster's Dictionary defines a diner as "a restaurant in the shape of a railroad car."" See http://www.americandinermuseum.org/site/history.php smile
Bill Phillips: I would never argue with Webster's. I would think the food is probably as authentic as the building
Makes a good picture, though. Great viewpoint.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Graeme
