Recently, I haven’t posted many reviews to this blog. For a number of reasons, mainly that I am busy doing the same stuff I do most days and because I usually have to wait until payday before I can afford to eat out. I have been trying to find more businesses to review from in and around my area. I hoped to go out last weekend and find something really good. Something that would excite my readers and although I believe I did find something really brilliant with Elm Tree Pies and The Cherry Tree, it certainly was not Retro Diner. This is my ‘review’ of Retro Diner in Abergavenny.
This will be the first negative review I have written. I almost don’t want to post it but for what purpose? Even the Twitter page says, “Trying everything once and telling you all about it.

Just recently I made myself the best Full English Breakfast I have ever tasted. I know that sounds unlikely to you, but I believe everyone makes the best Full English Breakfast, in their own opinion. Only you know how you like it and nothing else quite steps up to the mark. Despite there being a massive selection out there for alternatives, most people still choose the Full English Breakfast when they want to indulge.
This had me wondering, is there anything out there that can really rival the great Full English Breakfast?
