Having stopped here at 10.30am today (only two tables occupied) we 'waited to be seated' and were 'shown' to a table by a member of staff pointing to a table from the other side of the restaurant without speaking. We placed our order, eventually, with same member of staff not acknowledging our arrival with a hello, more a somber what... More

Often call here as restaurant is located on my commute home from work. Typical Little Chef, a bit pricey and limited menu. But the staff here are friendly, welcoming and attentive to one's needs, food always well-cooked and nicely presented. Well done to Paulette and the team.

As a travelling businessman and leisure customer I have enjoyed a good many Olympic Breakfasts in my time. For the second time in a fortnight (at a second location) I have just experienced a terrible plate of food. Not inedible but very varied temperatures across the ingredients and bacon and sausage clearly reheated or kept warm for a long time.... More

Ordered to seating in a rude Sargent Major manner. Only one meal arrived, three were missed. Had to wait 15 mins for re order, while one of us had to eat alone in front of us.!!!! When meals arrived, the chips were wrong, had to wait again...!! Burgers were very greasy. !! Did not enjoy at all...!! Will not recommend,... More

The Little Chef is a very British institution and I am sure the team here do a good trade being next to a Travel Lodge that has not catering facilities. Went for 2 days for late breakfast. The menu seems to have take a recent backwards step, all toasties and junky British food now. That's not really a wise move... More

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
