Used this Little Chef twice due to staying at the Travelodge nearby. I was a bit sceptical after reading not so good reviews here about the staff. So 5 of us first time and 7 of us the second experienced breakfasts and thought the place was clean and the staff pleasant, no problem. Food was pretty good for a services... More

Called at the SUBWAY Outlet on a busy Friday evening and what a refreshing change to have such helpful staff. Would you believe this was our first visit to a Subway in the UK so they talked us through everything including all the offers. So all 4 of us had a sub, drink, crisps/cookies for under £13 - Fantastic

Due to a lack of service stops on the A1 and in need of a break this little chef was almost the only option (should have gone to the subway next door). Menu is as you'd expect and not awful but also not great. The staff were dreadful, so brash, rude, loud and generally off putting.

We had accidentally missed the Little Chef we normally stop at on our way North and this was the next available. The staff were very friendly & welcoming. Our food, which was tasty (is this so surprising for a Little Chef?) arrived promptly and, including toilet breaks, we were back on our way in 30 minutes. This is exactly what... More

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
