“You can see why they don't keep trading!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Disappointing quality - it should be standard but the service was poor and quality mediocre. How can it be so poor? Starter arrived afternoon course and order not correct either. All very rushed and had hazard. It wasn't exactly busy but so so chaotic . Little Chef is gwnerlly good. This one simply isn't .

“Why Is There Complaints? Its Amazing!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

While staying on Holiday near this Little Chef we visited the restaurant twice, both times the service and food was amazing. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by a waitress who told us to choose a seat, she then handed kids menu's out and took a food and drinks order. Then about 2 Minutes later she brought the drinks over. Then about 3 Mins later the food arrived, all fully cooked. As soon as we had eaten we paid the bill which was great value for money. I hope people begin to realise that Little Chef has changed for the better.

“Some staff would help...”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Second day of breakfast at Little Chef which is attached to Travelodge.

Sunday morning there was one highly competent member of staff waiting and one new and not yet proficient chef. Two more waiting staff arrived about 9am and didn't really add much to the service. Food was OK although the Breakfast Wrap was missing ingredients...

Monday morning arrived later and more staff are around but all are pretty ineffective.

The staff are all very friendly but the service is terrible overall.

“Under staffed”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten here before but today had a jacket spud which as Luke warm and with a black rotten piece. However the kids seemed to enjoy their burgers. Felt sorry for waitresses as understaffed and did try and remain polite
