The greeting and staff were all very friendly and helpful directing us straight to our table and very efficient taking our orders. The wait for the food was not too long and when it came it was hot and delicious. My only complaint would be the music at the time we were there did not need to be so loud. Would recommend to anyone great place for food and beer.

It was a highly anticipated Sunday Roast that lived up to expectations. Surprising added extra half way through the server comes round with extra Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes. I had the beef and my friend had the chicken....both enjoyed very much. The apple crumble with custard was amazing. I probably shouldn't have ate all of it as it was a hearty portion....but I did! Only negative roasties could have been more crispy and buttery but will definitely be back!

Food for all four of us was delicious. We were given our favourite table. Service was generally good, except we had to ask for water 5 times before it arrived

About the restaurant
Karen's Diner is an interactive diner located next to the Kitty Cat Cafe in the Bull Ring, and an absurdly fun experience. At Karen's Diner, 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....

A very warm welcome on arrival. Drins at the bar as our table was being prepared. The servixe was excellent, as was the delicious food. Thoroughly recommended you dine here, but make sure you pre-book your table

Perfect restaurant for pre dinner before show at the arena. Service was amazing, very quick, attentive and the food was gorgeous and very hot, perfect! Only slight criticism would be the tables for 2 are quite closer to each other and maybe a little on the small side with multiple drinks/plates. Would def come back and recommend!
