My wife and I had breakfast here after a night at the nearby Travelodge. Neither of us had eaten in a LIttle Chef for many years and ultimately we were pleasantly surprised by the food. We were greeted and seated quickly, and asked what drinks we wanted. These arrived fast, but we were then left for a long time without... More

We stopped here for breakfast and was very pleasantly surprised not only was the breakfast really good but the outstanding service from the young lady (we believe her name was Tabby) was incredible nothing was to much for her. considering we was not expecting much from a road side restaurant this one was very good would defiantly recommend

It has been a decade or more since I have visited a Little Chef, and enroute back to the Frozen North from London this was an option that presented itself, and we took it. Having seen celebrity endorsements come and go, and myself calling it The Little thief for years, I take it back and the three of us definitely... More

Visited at opening time (7.00am) on a Friday morning, having been on the road for a couple of hours and enjoyed an excellently cooked & well presented Olympic Breakfast, served by extremely polite staff. I found the selection of Little Chef Jams for sale at the tables to be a good idea and bought one for my wife. This is... More

Warm welcome from staff, firstly noticed how clean & tidy the restaurant was. Ordered the Olympic breakfast (fried bread, black pudding) & Americano which came first, followed promptly by the food. I have to say it was fabulous & delivered with the nicest smile. Had another coffee whilst browsing the Internet on the free wi fi which is simple to... More

Went in for a meal after a long day and immediately noticed the extortionate prices and thought well maybe the food is worth it. Sadly not even close. The "gammon steak"wasn't a steak more a very thin and large slice of bacon with chips (all eight of them) in a twee fryer basket which they use I guess. To limit... More

Visited for breakfast. One Olympic breakfast and one American breakfast later, no food needed for the rest of the day! Food is good, service is quick and the restaurant is clean. No frills food which was what we wanted.
