We were served by the chef Daniel who was working on his own. He was friendly, polite and helpful and served up two excellent meals. If only all staff were like him.

Stayed in the Travel Lodge next door and we were going to have breakfast in this Little Chef, which is right next door. I checked that the place opened early and the website and the printed sign on the door said it opened at 7 am. So I was surprised when the door was still locked at twenty five to... More

Had the old Olympic Breakfast this morning. The place was busy and only two staff but still got my food fairly quick and cooked very nicely. Main reason for the review is to give the Chef some credit, he was cooking, helping out on the till, waitering. Was polite and worked under pressure brilliantly, he's a real credit to the... More

This place is disgraceful. Came with a 4 year old and 9 month old. Took 30mins before they even came over to take an order. It wasn't busy so they had no excuse! I had to go find a kids menu! When they finally came over. No "hi how you" it was " what u want!" Got told there's no... More

The food was excellent value for money and very tasty. The food filled us up well and was served quickly. The service was good, the waitress brought drink and food to us promptly. The atmosphere wasn't so good as it was rather quiet inside.

Quiet for an early breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff. I had a great cup of coffee and a tasty bacon sarnie.

Not having visited a Little Chef for some time, I thought I would give this one a try; I wish I hadn't! On arrival, I was directed to a table by a wordless wave of the hand by what I took to be the manager. Not a great start. My order was taken by a new member of staff, who... More

Due to prior experience with Little Chef restaurants I was in good spirits about having one to wake up to as working in area and a breakfast, in my opinion, can make or break a working day. Upon entering the building was greeted by the sight of what can only be described as a group of adolescents/ young 20s huddling... More

The only reason why I visit this place is because of its proximity to my client's premises. I avoid the morning rush hour and can prepare there and because customers are conspicuous by their absence I am guaranteed a table to myself. But boy is it grim...let's start with the loos. Filthy, smelling, the sani bins overflowing, grimy basins, no... More
