good food and service. shame about the tatty decor

The food is well cooked, hot and tasty. The service is very good and always with a smile. The building lets it all down which is such a shame. To tidy the place up with some wood and paint would not be that expensive.

I am surprised Little Chef are still going as they are a tired model. But the staff and this one are polite and efficient and the food was pretty good. The place was spotless despite being dated. They were in the middle of a refurbishment which would make it more attractive to potential customers. Looking at it from the outside... More

We stopped here on an early morning set-off heading towards Helston, and we were glad we did. The service and food were very good - you probably know what you are going to get at a Little Chef, but this is one of the best I have been to. This makes it all the more difficult to understand why they... More

We tend to try and avoid the "fast food" multiples unless desperate in general and that's just the way we are - usually low quality and therefore usually low expectations. On our way down to Cornwall this Little Chef seemed as good a place as anywhere for a quick break from the road - more to stretch our legs and... More

The food was freshly cooked and really enjoyable. The service was excellent and served with a smile. It really is a shame that the building is rather run down. We will visit again. Just don't look at the surroundings but enjoy the food.

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
