Been years since I have been in a little chef so it was a little like going back in time except for the prices. My view of this area is use the Burger King if you want more than just a seat. I opted for the soup that came in two option both in the smallest bowl ever and cold... More

The radio from kitchen is clashing with the music in the dining area - doing my head in. My flat (no foam) cappuccino is not worth £2.79. Those floor tiles look impossible to clean (and are clearly not clean). No wi-if. Red plastic tables. My chilli burger is actually alright. It's Little Chef - pretty much the same as my... More

Rubbish outside entrance, filthy entrance hall, plastic rubbish on floor by reception desk. Indifferent, untrained staff not supporting hard working cook. Tables not cleared or car cleaned properly until requested. Used to be good but now a disgrace to the chain.

Stopped at this Little Chef for a quick lunch. The place was quite empty and my colleague and I dutifully waited by the sign to be seated. A rather disinterested young man came and said we could '.....sit where you like'. The young lady who came to take our order was as equally disinterested. Although quiet there were tables that...

I rather like a Little Chef Jubilee Pancake - but not from here. I specifically asked for the filling to be hot - when the pancake arrived it was like the filling was straight from the fridge. The pancake was really stodgy - almost raw. As it was busy and we had waited a while, I ate some of the... More

A very modern feel to this restaurant. On the morning we visited for breakfast service was friendly and very efficient. Our food arrived quickly and was of an excellent quality. The staff worked hard as there only seemed to be three of them. There is take away and plenty of snack choice. I wish all out little chef experiences were... More

Food was ok, one egg overlooked, one egg ok, breakfast sausage poor quality but coffee excellent. At the end of the day it was s put stop just to grab breakfast and whilst not wonderful it did the...
