Fatboy’s Diner is a 1940s American-style diner hidden away in the Docklands area of London.
Fatboy’s Diner is a true gem. It’s located in a most unexpected place. There isn’t much else around other than some shipping containers, a few boats, and some warehouses. However, there is something else that is very unique out here…London’s only lighthouse. When you visit the diner, you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. There isn’t much else out here to convince you that you’re not actually back in the 1940s.
Fatboy’s Diner features a traditional, American-style menu of burgers, fries and shakes. Of course, there are several other options. Fatboy’s has their own special secret recipe for hot dogs. I personally recommend “The Superdog”, which is smothered in every topping imaginable!
