Another sad looking Little Chef..... but staff very efficient !

Having decided to miss our usual Little Chef at Honiton, due to bad experiences with the food there (not the staff), we opted for this Little Chef. Again, like many Little Chef buildings, its very sad looking and in need of urgent updating and repair. On arrival the staff were very attentive and... read more

The interior was clean, tidy and well looked after, however the state of the exterior left a great deal to be desired with gaps in the window frames and woodwork rotting away. The building is in dire need of refurbishment. Despite these working conditions the staff members were friendly and helpful. There were some items unavailable from the menu but... More

We visited on Easter Monday, for breakfast. This Little Chef is in dire need of renovation, the carpets are torn and worn, window frames are rotted almost to the point of disintegration and tiles missing from the walls in the bathroom. Business was brisk, with holidaymakers returning from Cornwall. My breakfast order took almost half an hour to arrive, yet... More

Called in for coffee. Huge gaps under rotting window frames and distinctly tired feel. Ok coffee...two mugs for just under a fiver. Pretty grotty really and felt sorry for the staff. Good position and needs investment!

First time in a little chef for many years, the staff were not only attentive but also eager to please. Had their tuna salad which was very well done and presented, followed by their syrup pancakes which were delicious. Have they turned the corner? I'm not sure as that was the first I had tried, but will certainly try others... More

What did the Little Chef at Sourton Cross remind me of on a damp misty November day with the afternoon light rapidly diminishing - a warm sanctuary of comfort from the cold of Dartmoor? No, more like Bates Motel!! Potholed large and unsurprisingly almost empty carpark at the rear of a one story building, walk past rusting hand rails to... More

Not a good start - was ignored whilst wait at the "wait here to be served" board, so found my own table. The staff outnumbered the diners so not sure why this was so. However, once we were wandering around the restaurant, we soon got some attention and from that point, we got good service. The food is always good... More

We have visited here many times over the years on our way to Cornwall and it became a regular stop for drinks, toast and pancakes. But this was the first time back for about 10 years and what a change! First the good points: very friendly welcome from the waitresses, the tea, coffee, tea cake, scone and ice cream were... More
