When Jo/Steve cleared the starters he gave us an update on the progress of the mains, which sure enough arrived a few minutes later. Again nothing missing or wrong. Experience has taught me that to get anything approaching a rare steak in England, you must a) border on the theatrical in your explanation to the waiter of how rare it must be. b) cut the thing through the middle the moment it arrives and before the waiter has time to disappear. c) almost inevitably sen... more

I took ten people to Arbuckles in Stoke on a busy Saturday night. We were shown straight to our table, our order was taken quickly by a friendly waiter called Steve (curiously he wore a badge identifying him as 'Jo'). Starters arrived within 10 minutes, were nice enough and were what we had ordered; nothing missing or muddled. When Jo/Steve cleared the starters he gave us an update on the progress of the mains, which sure enough arrived a few minutes later. Again nothing missing or wrong.

Fatty Arbuckles American Diners are totally committed to two major principles: 1. Customers should be provided with all round value for money that cannot be beaten. 2. Anyone eating at Fatty Arbuckles will enjoy the experience so much that they will want to return again and again. Obviously their words and not mine. Well, starting logically, lets have a look at ‘Principle Number One’; the food is reasonably priced. Cannot be beaten? Well, Pizza Hut is around the same price and is the most similar establishment I can think of. However, the second ... Read the complete review

I've had good experiences at Fatty's before, and last night I thought I'd go again, since I haven't been for over two years. I had a few friends with me who were both first time Fatty eaters, so we decided to go for it. I arrived at the site in Festival Park, Stoke, about 9pm, and the first thing I noticed was the makeover that seems to have taken place over the last few years. Firstly, the Fatty's part of the name has been dropped - it's just Arbuckles now. This could be a bad thing - Fatty's were always known to me as a source of huge gut-busting meals. Does the lack of Fatty mean the portions are now smaller? On our ... Read the complete review

American Diners are ten a penny these days, springing up at most major 'Entertainment Parks' (Cinema/Bowling/Diners/etc). Fatty?s as a chain therefore has a certain appeal, but it is not bearing up well against some good competition who appear to be able to do it that little bit better. I've so far been to 3 Fatty-Arbuckles, and overall they don't appear to be hitting the market they are aiming for. For those who have never been to America, the Vacation Diners serve large meals (usually containing unhealthy amounts of meat), absurd sweets, at normal prices, and all with excellent service (for they count on your tips to top up their meagre ...

Our annual visit to Alton Towers this year, was, bravely on my part to be a two day event, naturally including an overnight stay for a very cheap price at the Moat House Hotel, Stoke-on-Trent. However, the price did not include an evening meal, and with a Doctor Who convention taking place simultaneously (yes, there were Daleks walking around doing what they do best), it was time to examine what eateries could possibly be found in the middle of a trading estate in this part of the world. Amazingly, there were quite a few to chose from including KFC, Pizza Hut, McDonalds and , yep, you've guessed it Fatty Arbuckles (well not Arbuckles to be precise ... Read the complete review
