As a frequent user of Little Chefs this is appaling. We stopped at a westbound Little Chef on the way to Cornwall which was clean, warm, friendly and great food. On the way back we stopped at this one. Ignored on entry, dirty tables everywhere, ignored at table, weak coffee, no sugar or condiments, breakfast wrap with no cheese as... More

Disgusting place. Dirty everywhere. Only 1 toilet in the ladies working. Food very bland. Worst little chef I've been to in 40 years

Just shocking .... Burger King next door is good .... went through to use toilets.... as a restaurant manager it's horrible to see every table dirty in an empty restaurant and the toilets .... well don't even go there , we had to make my 4 year old son wait for the next services ......you've been warned

Attended as part of a service stop. Didn't even stay for food. The toilets are a disgrace! No toilet roll in any men's toilets, no soap, dirty restaurant. Horrible. It's a shame because the Burger King isn't too bad but is let down by what is next door. Little Chef should be embarrassed.

We arrived at the Travelodge next door and stopped here for dinner. We were a group of 10 and felt lucky we could all be seated. If I'd read the reviews first it would've given me an idea of why it was so empty. Firstly there's no clear 'leadership' seemed like all teenagers running the show. Though they were friendly...

Never been in a place that sells food that is so disgusting . The menus are grimy and need replacing as just a sticky mess and as for cleaning table tops they DONT. Avoid if you don't want to be ill .... I will be emailing little chef and putting in a complaint ...

I agree with most of previous reviews. The service was poor and the place is in need of a complete make over, no, a rebuild. The food was edible at a high price. If you stay at the adjoining hotel it's the only place to eat. In the past we have stayed at the nearby Holiday Inn with in house... More

I'm down that way twice a year and it just gets worse and worse, so, luckily for me and sadly for little chef I am now boycotting all little chefs. Its disgustingly dirty with nobody appearing to clear the tables or bother to wipe them. Staff are extremely miserable and have no interest or pride in working there. Time to... More
