Some very sweet people working there but some strong management required to bring it up to any kind of standard one would expect of a restaurant. Staff serving food in filthy clothing makes one worry about general hygiene. Generally it appeared that there was no clear leadership just a bunch of pals mucking about in a kitchen. It did not...

Urgh the toilets in here were distgusting and filthy. Out of the 3 ladies cubicles only one had toilet paper in despite the fact that loo roll and strewn all over the floor. Dirty toilet bowls. Could not believe the state of the basins and tiles around them- thick grime/ tide marks absolutely revolting. Couldn't see any member of staff... More

Stopped off here for a snack with my son. There's a restaurant and takeaway, serving up similar meals. We were short of time so chose the takeaway. Whilst queuing we were told the terms were exact cash or cards only, no explanation. Limited menu so chose a 'fish' burger meal. The tiny piece of fish was ok but swamped by... More

Service without a smile seems to be the order of the day when we visited. The older woman working seemed to walk around pushing a broom rather than acknowledge actual customers. When asked about coffee she said 'what about it?!!!' Classic customer service!!! Absolutely filthy, a big queue for only one male toilet as the other one was out of... More

I needed some food and it wasn't until I got inside this Little Chef that I realised I had been there before (see previous review) Well, I can safely say they have not improved We stood waiting to be seated for about 10 minutes. There were only 4 tables occupied so only 9 other diners max. The waiter ambled past... More

Bad service followed by a cold breakfast (plus it wasn't what I had asked for). The cleanliness of Little Chef was unpleasant. Wouldn't recommend stopping off for a breakfast or anything if I am being honest.

There is no wonder that there are so few remaining Little Chef restaurants, if this one in anything to go by. Although the young lady who served us was pleasant and polite, her demeanour matched the general decor which gave the impression that it had simply given up. The men's toilet was closed (at breakfast time) and the soap dispenser... More

Visited this place yesterday. It was awful. The meal was almost burnt, the gents toilets were overflowing, water all over the floor. No toilet paper anywhere and the staff were abysmal. We complained, but nobody seemed to care at all. I have complained on main Little Chef website, but looking at other comments on here, will not hold my breath... More

We stayed at the Travelodge next door for one night and popped over for breakfast. We walked in and stood where it said wait to be seated, staff saw us and ignored us. A girl then said go and sit down and I will come over. She then did and took our order. We waited a while then she brought... More
