We were staying in a Travelodge for a couple of days, and just by it was Herbie’s Diner; if you are driving eastbound along the A14, the Huntingdon Road in Cambridgeshire, just near Swavesey, or even if you’re driving north, you can pull of at a handy junction and loop round to get there – you will see Herbie’s Diner and I really urge you to pull over, take a break and have some decent refreshments.
There were five of us and we had two breakfasts and two dinners, so we managed to cover quite a bit of the menu! As the name suggests it is an American themed restaurant, but even if you don’t like burgers (I don’t) there is an amazing array of other things to tempt you. Everything we had was cooked to order and was hot and delicious and there was lots of it – very generous portions! All the staff we met were friendly, pleasant, and efficient, which adds to the enjoyment if you feel comfortable and welcome! There was also a selection of beers and wine which we enjoyed with our dinner:
An added extra is the great decor – it is all in jolly red and white and themed as the menu is. There were plenty of pictures, but maybe the star was the jukebox. it was playing Herbie’s selection of 1940’s, 50’s and early 60’s classic rock and roll, plus the occasional number from ‘Grease’.
I’m not sure when we will be able to go again, Cambridge is a long way from Somerset, but we’re looking forward to it!!
Rather a fuzzy picture, but you get the idea!
