“Don't expect a welcome or chit chat”
Review of Little Chef

Little Chef
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Well. What can I say a bizarre visit. No welcome no general chit chat or conversation of any kind. Actually the waiter just stood at the table looking at his hand held device, no, 'And what can I get you?'

Food was quickly served and hot. Dirty mugs and cutlery. Shame as I love little chef.

Thank Nat E

Following a bad visit to the Burford little chef this restored our faith. The staff were friendly, well turned out the food delivered amazingly fast. The food was great. The chef appeared to work so hard, the meals were prepared in
Lightening speed & the presentation was very good. A most enjoyable experience we will definitely visit again.

I have to say that the comment from Honestlyjonny [not so honest] regarding the manager is UTTER rubbish. I have known her for many years and she is probably one of the best managers i HAVE ever known. She runs a tight ship, is very fair, TOTALLY committed to her job, has extremely high standards and expects only the best from her staff and herself. She and her Restaurant are top in the company, she is highly respected by managers at other LC's and also by top company management. She stands in many times to do double shifts even though she has a young family and partner at home, and NEVER lets her standards slip no matter how long her shift has been, she can run that place on her own with her hands tied behind her back if she has to, but will NEVER be rude to a customer under any circumstances. The comment about her size is a disgrace, she may still be the same size tomorrow Honestlyjonny, but you will still be writing rubbish on this site as a bitter imaginary customer !!!!!

Second visit here within three months, since it's almost exactly midway between home and son's new University. Welcome was warm and the service was rapid, friendly & efficient. Breakfasts were rapid and tasty. Appearance wise, it's always the little things that you notice - like a small 'puddle' of dust and crumbs around the base of the condiments/menu bases - which suggested that the tables are not completely cleared before being wiped. Also noticed that some of the light fittings, both in the main restaurant and the toilets are hanging out of the ceiling somewhat. Gives the impression of a facelifted outlet, that's now not receiving quite the attention to detail, maintenance-wise, that it should. C'mon LC - don't spoil this improved venue by taking your eye off the ball now!

Have not been into a Little Chef for many years ( 30+) as they seemed over priced and dreadful. I was very impressed with this one. It's clearly had a big improvement on the Little Chefs of old. It was clean , up to date environment with friendly prompt staff. The food, cooked breakfasts x4 with extra bits and bobs was freshly cooked, well presented and all correct. A hearty breakfast which sets one up for the day. Well done Little Chef. I shall return sooner than last time.
