It has always been a pleasure to have a meal at this Little Chef and last Thursday was no different - tasty food which was well presented and attentive staff. Sorry that it is closing in January.

we visited there this evening whilst travelling to Bristol. The deep fried food was all over cooked and tasted like old oil the ham and coleslaw were very cold and the restaurant itself was really cold. The service was ok but half hearted.

Visited for both breakfast and evening meal. Prompt service with a smile. Food was well prepared, simple but tasty. Would recommend a visit for non-fussy food at a good price.

Stopped off after a long journey for a business breakfast. I was pleased to see a more healthy porridge option which was really nice. Coffee was decent too.

When staying at adjacent Travelodge, enjoyed a reasonable evening meal at the Little Chief, with excellent table service. Next morning went there again for an 'Early Riser' breakfast, but the seating area was strewn with rubbish and uncleared tables. There were many potential Customers standing...More
