Business Description

Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular American diner business, which is ideally located within Bromley, Greater London.

The business was originally established in 1970 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2005. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £295,500 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 59%, as per the 2016 accounts.

The diner is an American gangster themed restaurant, which offers the full American dining experience in one of the American style booths. The walls of the restaurant are covered in old newspaper articles, wanted posters and pictures of infamous gangsters of the 1930s including John Herbert Dillinger.

The restaurant offers a wide range of fayre, including their famous ribs, which are covered in a delicious BBQ sauce and the 16oz or 32oz T-Bone steaks, as well as a variety of beverages.

The property boasts 97 sq. metres of floor space, with the main dining area to the front of the premise, which is decorated to a very high standard with approximately 80 covers and a full commercial kitchen to the rear.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield, for the very high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The diner also has excellent website reviews on the very popular travel site Trip Advisor.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening for breakfast and lunch services. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the food and services offered. The business already has an informative website in place at

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.


Dillinger’s American Diner occupies substantial ground floor premises, which is ideally located within the large suburban town of Bromley, Greater London. The business is situated on the busy Hayes Street and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from on-street parking facilities to the front of the premises.
