When we arrived for our meal, we discovered there was only one waitress, and one cook on duty. Had to wait a while for our meal, which was understandable due to being understaffed. Had a double burger meal, tasty burgers, lovely thick cut chips, onion rings, coleslaw all done to a good standard. Brilliant service from our waitress.

No shown to a table - just had to find one. The person who served us was wearing a filth apron - if boiled it might have produced a soup. The toilets were disgusting - better to find a bush outside. The food was mediocre at best. On the positive side the person who dealt with us was pleasant. I'm... More

Called here on our way home from holiday hoping for some lunch. Visited toilets first, disabled one was out of service, gents was flooded with one of the two cubicles out of service and ladies had broken locks. This had not just happened. Our experience in there put us off eating and we left quickly. Clearly the place is lacking... More

I called in with a coach party on the way home from Holyhead and was appalled at the state of the place. Only 2 staff who were run off their feet. Unable to provide hot food as short staffed. The toilets were disgusting. The accessible toilet was out of order and one of the three toilets was also out of... More

After waiting ten minutes without any service at all, I asked at the counter for some service. I was told that this was on its way. Five minutes later, without even a drinks order having been taken, I again went up to the counter, suggested that at least this could be done. Instead of apologizing, which she steadfastly refused to... More

Stayed at the Travelodge next door,which has no cooking facilities,so was obliged to eat at the Little Chef next door.Haven't been in one for many years and the menu seemed remarkably familiar.Had scrambled egg and bacon and a cappuccino.Well served by a very pleasant waitress in a short time.Typical Little Chef layout.Food fine and reasonably priced.
