About this deal

But for Chris Nye it was the perfect choice: a small town, but not too small; a town with a rising, young population that was literally crying out for an American-style Diner; a town without a McDonalds. This book should be required reading for any company that specializes in a food takeaway platform - it gave me a lot of empathy for the restaurant owner and everything they have to go through. Like many others I have very fond memories of good food and good times spent at the 'Max' - a trip to the cinema on Saturday afternoon wasn't complete without popping in for a burger or the massive Dime Sundae! on a Friday night, flexing their tattoos after they've been thrown out of the pub; how to avoid paying VAT on a Big Max and fries; and why you should never, ever, hire an Elvis impersonator on the cheap. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. But for Christopher Nye it was the perfect choice: a small town, but not too small; a town crying out for American-style diner; a town without a McDonald's. Why not try our Doner Kebab, which is Cypriot style doner kebab with herbs and spices, served with daily prepared fresh salad and pitta bread, or our delicious speciality kebabs, such as Maximum Kebab or Combination of any 2 Kebabs.

Also in our Breakfast menu is Maximum Buster, which is 2 sausages, 2 bacon, fried slice, tomato, 2 eggs, chips and beans, or our Veggie Breakfast, including 2 eggs, 2 veggie sausage, 2 hash browns, mushrooms, tomato, chips, beans and fried slice! Christopher currently lives in Lewes, where he works as a freelance journalist (oh alright, and as a taxi driver).

The joys of owning a restaurant, the pleasure of dealing with the public, cooking for people who don't appreciate it . But for Christopher Nye it was the perfect choice: a small town, but not too small; a town crying out for an American-style diner; a town without a McDonald's. And what a sad ending - without giving it away, it just shows that business owners can do everything right and.Thoroughly enjoyed reading Christopher Nyes memoirs of battling on the front line of catering, with only a spatula and a wonky home made griddle (and the occasional unexpected act of god) by his side. Chris Nye gets plenty of fun out of the deeply ordinary and is particularly good on the drink-fuelled undercurrent of malevolent violence which is rarely far below the surface in English country towns. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). A brilliant book which follows the author and his rag tag team as they go through the highs and lows of the catering industry.

The service was great and my kids were given a lollipop each as we left which was a well received gesture. I spent the first 23 years of my life living in Uckfield and its surrounds and the Maximum Diner was the best thing that happened to the town in all the time I lived there!Chris Nye, the author of the memoir and owner of the diner in question perfectly captures the spirit of the town as he depicts the troubles he had in getting his dream project, an American style Diner, from conception to operation in a small Sussex town that didn't yet have a McDonalds. His childhood ambitions were to become a Zulu, and then a diplomat, but thwarted by poor A level grades he settled for a course in hotel and catering management at Leeds Poly. This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use.
