The Tube Diner
Charlie who operates The Tube Diner at Paintworks is passionate about food having come from a family of foodies, all cooking from a young age. He has catered at many festivals over the years including Glastonbury and managed a successful country pub in West Dorset. Charlie offers a great selection of breakfast and lunch items, pancakes, smoothies & shakes, freshly made sandwiches, salads and daily specials.
The iconic diner was part of the original vision for the site at Paintworks. Ashley Nicholson from Verve Properties included a diner in his original sketches which, rather appropriately, started out on the back of a napkin!
Months were spent searching the internet for suitable ideas for the body of the cafe. Plane fuselages, silos and buses were just a few of the options considered. Finally when tracking a converted American school bus, he came across the Airstreams and, like buses, there were not one but three. At that point they were sitting in a field in Pudding Swamp Road, South Carolina, owned by one Billie-Bob Donmar.
