About this deal

A brilliant book which follows the author and his rag tag team as they go through the highs and lows of the catering industry.

Chris Nye, the author of the memoir and owner of the diner in question perfectly captures the spirit of the town as he depicts the troubles he had in getting his dream project, an American style Diner, from conception to operation in a small Sussex town that didn't yet have a McDonalds. on a Friday night, flexing their tattoos after they've been thrown out of the pub; how to avoid paying VAT on a Big Max and fries; and why you should never, ever, hire an Elvis impersonator on the cheap. We often take our vistors for Breakfast to Maxim Diner, as the quantity and quality of the Breakfast is second to none. Generous portions, the food isn't going to win any awards but was acceptable, perhaps a little expensive as some of the ingredients used are towards the lower end of the scale.We are a family friendly takeaway which specialises in a large variety of Pizza, Breakfast, delicious Charcoal Grills and Turkish cuisine, including tasty Doner and Chicken Kebab, Shish Kebabs and Kofte Kebabs, Combination Kebabs, a range of burgers, chicken nugget, Hash and Kids Meals.

The service was great and my kids were given a lollipop each as we left which was a well received gesture. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). It is humorous, light, eventful and endearing as it tells of the dreams and pitfalls of opening an American-style diner in Uckfield.A bit rambling and directionless, but mildly funny and with a lot of charm, but maybe I only find it charming because I grew up in Uckfield, during the Maximum Diner years. He now lives in Brighton, where he works as a freelance journalist (well, okay, as a mini-cab driver).
