“The managers a real piece of work !!!! Beware bad attitude !!!!”
Review of Little Chef

Little Chef
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

Popped in for a quick breakfast as we live locally , have been in a few times the food is fine just the large manager with a serious attitude problem
As we walked in we could see it was fairly quiet as we waited the manager told us to go find a clean table witch was a lovely greeting ! Found a table that was maybe clean by there standards but not mine ( been wiped but still beans n sugar all over with a dirty napkin on floor ) got a paper to look at as we waited she came over with a face like thunder n asked us wot we wanted in a sour tone we ordered and she asked what paper i wanted to buy, kindly told her that i was just having a quick read as i have many times before and my head was bitten off, she rudely told me u have to buy it or don't bother reading it so i asked where the restaurant copies r as u get in macdonalds or any greasy spoon that serves up quick food was told by her big chops that there are none n buy it or lose it, annoyed with her tone and arrogance told her to take it which she then snatched it with a grin on her face like she had won and stamp off like a bull to put it back, to be honest it was 70 p and i wouldn't have minded paying for it just the point of rubbing us up the wrong way , so we decided to vote with our feet, got up asked her to cancel the order which she didn't even bother to look at us as we left , if this is the managers attitude then know wonder the other poor staff look so down , little chef its a disgrace we went across the a34 to eat and go ( which was a little chef but shut down i wonder why ! ) had a great breakfast friendly staff and very clean , will be putting a complaint in to head office as well how did she get the managers job i will never know !!!

Have not been in a L.C. For years!! But as soon as we entered this one we knew it would be good. The two people serving Val. And Tracey were soo welcoming and helpful on letting us know what was on offer.When our breakfasts arrived we again were very pleased as they were hot 10/10 and well presented and above all tasty!! Thank you to Val and Tracey because of your good customer service we chose the right breakfasts and will be returning again. L.c. Hold onto these two members of staff as they are a credit to you.

I have never been a "Little Chef " snob....used them for years, accepting that they were convenient, relatively inexpensive, and serving edible food.
This one however seems to break the mold, very helpful friendly staff, extremely nice food, and with a rather unique warm atmosphere.
Whatever you are doing L.C please continue .
P.S. please keep Heston away !

We loved the new Heston style Little Chefs and started visiting them frequently on long journeys after the transformation from the shabby, outdated food chain they used to be. However we were very disappointed to see that they had dumped the Heston changes and quality food and gone backwards again. The service was poor too. What a shame after all the positive changes they've gone back to their forgettable past. Not a chance we'll be back or singing their praises again.

Second time in 7 days that I stopped at this little chef. First time the service was poor but acceptable. This time however we didn't even get as far as ordering! We were shown to a table and then ignored for over 25 minutes. By then I had had enough and walked out. Never to return to this or any other little chef. No wonder the chain is in desperate straits.
