Clever Marketing? You think Little Chef? The word CON springs to mind. We ordered an Olympic breakfast @ £ 8.00 and an early breakfast @ £ 6.99. When I went to pay the bill, I was charged an additional £ 2.49 for the cold coffee that was not included in the smaller breakfast. I polietly declined the two lollipops that... More

Called in, party of 6 including 2 elderly grandparents.Friendly welcome and staff pushed 2 tables together so we could be seated together. Light and airy, clean surroundings. All drinks and food presented beautifully, loved the little tea pots and the milk bottles. Recommend the Mushroom toastie, lovely presentation with side salad and coleslaw but all our meals were lovely. Staff... More

This review is for the Little Chef on the North bound side of the A1. We stopped here for breakfast on our way North. The service was quick and my American breakfast was well cooked, the bacon just right, the scrambled egg light and fluffy, the only downside, I would have preferred 'Shrove Tuesday' pancakes instead of Scotch ones. My... More

We were overnighting at the adjacent Travelodge and had both an evening meal and breakfast here. Unlike the experience of others we were met at the wait to be seated sign and shown a table, Our orders were taken promptly and we did not have long to wait. Meals were tasty and service good. It was a similar story for... More

I can only echo the review by CBJJW. We were traveling to Durham and this was our halfway stop. We waited by the sign that said wait to be seated but no-one came to show us to a table. A voice shouted across the restaurant to 'sit at that table over there'. Walking to the table we could see that... More

We popped into little chef on way to work after running a errand and we were extremely shocked by the bad service! As we walked in the sign said stand and wait to be seated yet this is not what happened, the lady shouted from across the room table for two yeah sit down then. She then took a long... More

Called in en route for a cup of tea. We were in a hurry. After being rather imperiously told to 'go and sit over there for me' by a waitress who didn't even bother to come away from the counter where she was standing, we waited 10 minutes to be served. The place wasn't busy and the 3 staff were... More

It seems that the morale of the staff seems to have taken a serious downward turn lately. We have been going for years, literally, and have always been happy. However a visit 2 weeks ago (14.5.16) on a Saturday night at 20.30 has made us wonder if its worth going back. We entered and waited patiently to be seated. There... More
