    If you're looking for a good classic English style breakfast diner then this is the place to go. Good decent food for a very good price. Friendly staff with a retro looking joint, will be coming back again!

    Since my previous review I have been visiting here quite often and really glad to see its getting busier they deserve a good trade, Good basic british food, and drinks. Very reasonably priced. If you want a decent mug of tea and old fashioned British Sausage, Egg and Chips you will be hard pressed to find anywhere local that can beat the food and prices of Hungry Diner

    I don't live in Southampton and a visit back to the mutant mile is always an eye opening one. Once I approached the Hungry diner the us usual mutants were sat outside, one eye between them, six toes on each hand and 50 cigarettes being smoke between the toe jam. I sat down to be approached by a lovely lady that always cooks the cheese omelettes. Now this cafe is flawless, a real greasy spoon and the coleslaw is amazing. You can get a decent cuppa (remember to check for lip stick marks, if you find them just wipe them off and carry on) the tomato ketchup is watered down to pink sauce with vinegar but if you like a chavvy delight then this is the place. If they still allowed smoking this would be the place where the staff would have massive fag ends dropping off in your food. But it's clean and the food is great. Just look past the mutants outside, if they approach you act foreign (don't take your Waitrose reusable bag anywhere near them though they will rumble you) Will I be back? Of course just for the omelette and appreciation of looking back :)

    Visited today and had the hungry diner omelette with chips salad and lovely creamy coleslaw. Really nice hot coffee. Lots of locals visit as it's so popular and value for money. Recommend don't eat breakfast before you visit as there's so much.

    We had a lovely breakfast here when we stayed in Southampton earlier in the year and we would definitely recommend this place for a great breakfast

    If you want a no frills diner where all the food is cooked fresh at reasonable prices then look no further. Service is excellent with my drinks arriving within minutes of placing the order. The omelettes are to die for freshly cooked with almost any filling you want. Good food, great service, reasonable price what more could you ask for, I will be eating breakfast and lunch here again.

    Omelette and chips yum. The prices haven't changed in years and it serves honest cheap grub. The sausages I would avoid so have an omelette instead

    I've had breakfast here on many occasions and it's always the same, bacon, egg and chips. It's always cooked the same and the chips are the best chips in Shirley. I've tried the other greasy spoons in Shirley High St and The Hungry Diner wins me over with its chips. Yes, it's a greasy spoon but its clean and it does what greasy spoons do. The girls are always nice and pleasant and they seem to be eager to please. I'll be back for my bacon, egg and chips with a smile sooner than you think.
