What is there to eat and drink at Mollie’s Motel & Diner?

If you’re dieting, head elsewhere. If not, whack on your comfies and slide into a diner-style booth for a slap up dinner of loaded burgers, humungous fried mozzarella sticks and thick shakes topped with whipped cream and drizzled in sauce.

It’s proper American-style grub here, but they do have salads if you’re after something a little lighter.

It’s not just hotel guests that eat at the Diner either, on a Saturday night it’s crammed with locals, while outside cars queue for the drive-thru.

The breakfast menu is equally indulgent and delicious.
