I should state that I used to frequent the Maximum Diner regularly back in '92 I think. 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! (Sorry Uckfield) 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. My friend and I would leave college on Tuesdays and head down to Uckfield for a burger at the diner - also to watch MTV which for us was the only place we could watch it as we didn't have satellite tv - and have a chat with Chris, an amiable chap who seemed to work the longest hours of anyone I had known to that point. It was a great place to eat and I especially remember enjoying the 'hash', a house speciality! this book deserves to be read by anyone who ever thought about running their own business - you will find it sobering but very amusing!
