It's a little chef so you know what you are getting

Fantastic Olympic breakfast as always at the little chef chain. It's a bit dated but I guess that's because it's not busy and at £7.99 it's good value.

My Dad and I stopped off here for a bit en route to Stoke and of course we expected to over pay for food here but expected it to be good. I have to say that the Works Buger I had, thier speciality burger, was the worst ive ever had. It was dry, over cooked and tough as old boots.... More

Expensive and average-quality fast food with deceptive policy of charging extras. The best thing about this place is the free Wi-fi to avoid paying the fees at Travel lodge! I had two meals there: the lunch of baked potatoes and salad was quite good ith a nice glass of wine. However the breakfasts are expensive and best avoided. I chose... More

Poor service and poorly cooked, overpriced food, need I say more. Why are all of the staff at Little Chefs so surly?

Stopped there for a breakfast on the way back from Darwin forest holiday park, its next to the travel lodge which appears to be ok, inside it's very run down, the toilets are just disgusting and the staff don't seem to know what they are doing and are rude. Save yourself the awful visit and don't go.

Rather disappointing visit. Long wait despite not many in. Food below usual reliable standard. Place is a little tired and needs some TLC. Shame really.

Not the best of food but service was friendly and the restaurant was convenient for my Travelodge. It's fine as long as you don't set your expectations too high

To keep it simple...The staff are superb. Their service is superb. The cooked breakfasts are superb. The owners really need to back the staff... ensure that the air conditioning works and the staff don't need to resort to opening the fire doors to get a 'through draft' that chills those sitting too near the door (food goes cold quicker). Tired,... More

A pleasant open dining room with basic dishes well cooked at the right price. Service was efficient and friendly.
