There's not many pics on the site, but the mag showed pics of an American style 50's diner c/w jukebox ect. & a great menu.

I go past everyday on my commute. I suppose I should stop by on my way home one day.
The site it's one used to hold a regular custom/American car meet one evening a month in the Summer. I think it used to be called Michael's...

Could well be. There's a pub on one side of it (now closed) and an Indian restaurant on t'other, if that helps to identify the site. Oh and commercial vehicle parking behind it, too.

Badgers Mount and Poll Hill. Used to be the main road in and out of London before the M25 was built.

There was a pub on the right as you were going up the hill and then the gardening center is further on on the right and there used to be a nightclub opposite almost. You would get to a roundabout and go to Orpington or Bromley.

I can remember this from my childhood as my Grandparents lived in Orpington and we lived in Bexhill On Sea at the time.

If you keep an eye on "Where, What, When", or whatever the other area on the forum is called, you'll see there is a meet here. It's normally on a Tuesday night and they often have Danny Fisher (I think that's his name) singing 50/60s songs. Have been a few times and the food is great but it is worth booking a table. Last time we went we were told they were fully booked even though it was 3/4 empty!!! Shouldn't complain as they found us a table in 40 minutes though. Will be a big meet in the summer but due to the distance it'll probably be summer before we get up there again. BTW watch out for deer on the M25 but that's a completely different story.....
