Beverley Hills Diner & Bar is Flemingate’s newest addition, drawing inspiration from classic American diners. Nestled amidst the hustle and bustle of Flemingate, this Hollywood-inspired diner and bar provides a modern, classy spin on the traditional American eatery.
As we headed inside, we were greeted by the lively tunes from their video jukebox, churning out music videos on the massive video wall. Combined with the classy decor and comfy, cubicle-style seating so reminiscent of the traditional American diner, it created a lively backdrop to our upcoming feast.
The menu, brimming with American staples, took our tastebuds on a gastronomic journey from coast to coast. We started with their ‘Ultimate Loaded Sharer Nachos’, a heavenly mix of crispy tortilla chips layered with gooey cheese, sour cream, creamy guacamole and tangy salsa, along with a plate of corn dogs; an American fun fair food we found surprisingly moreish.
When the main course came, we were not disappointed. I had the full rack of ribs, a smoky and succulent feast complemented by crispy fries and arguably the best coleslaw I’ve ever tasted. Laura opted for the LA Cheese Dog, a delicious combo of juicy all-beef hotdog, rich cheese sauce, and crispy pancetta. The kids were thrilled with their Margherita pizza and pasta Neapolitan, which they polished off with gusto!
We pushed ourselves for desserts, and it was worth every bite. The gooey chocolate brownie, melting against a scoop of cool vanilla ice cream, was a match made in heaven. We also opted for a classic American pancake stack doused in syrup, with a side of ice cream – they really do taste as good as they look! We were especially impressed to learn that a large portion of the menu, including the ones we tried, are available gluten-free.
But what’s a Beverly Hills-inspired joint without some cocktail glamour? The bar, with its extensive drinks menu, pays a fantastic tribute to Hollywood, with an extensive menu of drinks all inspired by classic films. We loved the unique touch of being able to print a photo or logo on the cocktails – after trying the first ever Hull What’s On cocktail, we won’t be forgetting it for a while!
What stood out most, however, was the warmth and attentiveness of the team. They treated us great, making us feel at home from the moment we walked in till the second we stepped out.
In short, our visit to Beverley Hills Diner & Bar wasn’t just a meal – it was a Californian adventure. With its stylish ambience, fantastic food, and exceptional service, it’s become our go-to spot for a slice of the American dream. We can’t wait to return and try the rest of their Hollywood-inspired menu.
