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

Stayed at the grotty travelodge next door, the garage and shop were closed so had to eat here, prices are extortion, everyone's meal was poor, I had ham egg and chips, I thought I couldn't go wrong, later that night I couldn't get of the toilet, I was in agony all the next day, feeling sick and having chronic diarrhoea,...

Once upon a time, deep in the wooded everglades 5 miles north of Hampstead Heath there existed a little old man who lived on his own, a chef by trade and a rather stoutly fellow by nature and hardly because of it. His haggered appearance was a reflection of his many years as front line chef at the Palace of... More

We stopped here to get a break from slow moving Saturday traffic on the A30. Had we not been very hungry & tired of sitting in the car we would have left and gone elsewhere. I ordered bacon/scrambled egg/toast, my partner fried eggs with toast and we shared a bowl of chips. The grill clearly hadn't been cleaned in a... More

We used to live near here so went here a few times when we were growing up, it wasn't fantastic back then. Whilst driving past last week we were all hungry so called in for a quick meal. It has not changed at all in all those years! We ordered three main courses and a kids meal. None of which... More

Not a great start to find they'd run out of both ham and baked potatoes. Although the restuarant was very quiet we had a very long wait for our food. The waiter eventually brought our order and asked who was having the "cheese sandwich". That turned out to be my ploughman's. Basically a cheese and pickle sandwich in soft white... More

I stopped at 8pm on a mid-week evening and there was only 2-3 people in the place. I tried to order the chicken and ham pie off the menu but was told that they don't do pies anymore. The chicken burger and chips was ok, but the bread was cold and the salad a bit tepid. The chicken and chips... More

Stopped here for a snack on the way back from Falmouth on business. We knew the food would be cooked to order & acceptable as it usually is in these places. And the service was very good too. But the 'kerb appeal' of the site leaves a lot to be desired. Flaking paint on the windows & walls, rotting wood,... More
