We called in for our breakfast on our way north. The building is in dire need of refurbishment but reasonable clean. We received a friendly welcome from the waitress and our breakfast was served quickly. the Olympic and the pancakes were tasty and hot.

What a difference between the old little chef eateries. The venue was very clean and staff were outstanding. Hannah, the server/chef stood out as we had a change to the menu. Nothing was a problem for them and the food was great. It was nice to see there were healthy options available too.

My two young children and I were staying at the travelodge next door and this little chef was perfect for breakfasts and evening meals. Good value for money, lovely food, and extremely friendly staff. Thanks.

We nipped in before checking into Travelodge adjacent to it. However I could not get over the price for things. Looking at the menu a breakfast starts from 6.99 (roughly), which is disgusting. I only had a coffee and pancake and few other things with the family which ok but the price took my breath away, after loosing my breath... More

I had arranged to meet up with an old friend I had not seen for some time at the Little Chef. We planned a quick lunch and a catch up. I had some poor experiences of Little Chef's recently but as this location was easy to find I decided to give it a go. From the outside it looked a... More

We enjoyed a lovely fish and chip evening meal. We were served by two lovely very helpful staff who even though it was closing soon nothing was to much trouble and we certainly didn't feel rushed Thankyou

I must admit I'm a little surprised by the number of negative reviews about Little Chef Alfreton. I have been a regular for a few years (living locally) and have always been happy with the food and service. It's also a good place to go if you want a quiet coffee/meal as it's never all that busy (unlike most restaurant... More

Over priced terrible breakfast! First of all the whole place needs a full refurbishment and clean. Unwelcoming staff with no get up and go. Myself, my wife and 9 years old son stayed at the adjoining Travelodge for the weekend and decided to have breakfast at the above little chef. We ordered drinks, my coffee came with a separate jug...
