“A good grilling”

My name is David, and I actively *like* eating at Little Chef restaurants, and find their "chubby chef" logo friendly and welcoming rather than the modern equivalent of a plague marker. I know that this will be a shocking confession to many of you, but bear with me if you would. I'm not going to...

ProMany facilities; greatly improving in areas.

ConsStill poor in areas.

Stopping off at a Little Chef these days reminds me of the long distance travelling that I used to have to do as a young child, in order to go and see members of the family who lived in far away places. But to be honest with you, I really can't see why we did it back then as Little Chef seemed to...

ConsThe chavvy customers, expensive food.

I have to admit to having a slight weakness for the Little Chef, mainly because when I am driving my little Mini on long road trips and having to fill her up every 3 hours or so due to her little fuel tank I invariably stop at a petrol chef with an adjoining Little Chef for a bacon bap and cup of...

UPDATES MOVED TO END I tend to travel quite a bit in both my business and personal life, and much to my partners annoyance love visiting Little Chefs. I must confess that the only meals I have ever eaten in them have been from their wonderful selection of 'All Day Breakfasts' and can honestly say...

“Carry-on eating...”

ProAvailable everywhere

ConsHideously overpriced, poor service, terrible food

Yesterday (Sunday 9th July 2006) I had the dubious pleasure of visiting on of Little Chef's restaurants (near Morcott on the A47 between Leicester and Peterborough). I feel I must register my disgust at the service myself and my companions recieved in return for what I feel was a ludicrously...

Once through the Dartford Tunnel it is a straight haul up the A12, to drive from London to East Anglia. However, there are no roadside cafes virtually from the moment you leave Catford all the way to Colchester. It was only when we reached the other side of the ancient roman and military town...

“Littel Chef, Large Rip Offs”

published 03/11/2007

ProLocation

ConsFood, rip off prices, surly staff

Feeling hungry & on a long journey in a strange area, you have little option but to put your faith in a motorway service station or a Little Chef. I stayed at a Travelodge at Washington services in the north east of England just south of Newcastle on a number of occasions & had the choice an...

“Little Chef big rip off”

published 09/07/2001

ProConveniently situated all over the place

ConsAwful food, poor service, expensive

The Little Chef chain has been owned by Granada for some time. Granada are currently in the process of renaming all their Granada services into MOTO presumably to fool us that awful old Granada services have gone and the new ones are better. Like that’s going to work for precisely one visit...

While staying at an adjoining Travelodge, I visited the Little Chef in Uttoxeter, for an evening meal and also breakfast the following morning. - APPEARANCE - Little Chefs can be spotted by the red and white logo (with a picture of a chef and the title 'LITTLE CHEF' underneath, amazingly). There...

Consoverpriced

The last time I was in a Little Chef I think I was about six. I can’t have been with my parents as they grimace just at driving past one, and I can’t imagine for a moment they’ve ever ventured inside. Anyway I ended up in one this afternoon, and was actually pleasantly surprised. Menu The Little...

ConsA litle expensive

It’s been a good while since I last set foot in a Little Chef restaurant, over a year in fact, until yesterday that is. I’d always remembered them as expensive places to eat, not particularly comfortable and with rather a bland café style menu and a long wait for your meal to arrive...

Can’t you just picture that little piece of heaven just off the Motorway called ‘Little Chef’. Succulent, tasty meals all reasonably priced. Somewhere to relax a while and break your journey. What would we do without them? Hey hold on a minute... – what am I saying...

Consbad service and inedible food

I am not a fan of Little Chef restaurants due to a couple of bad experiences which I will tell you about here. The first was when visiting Little Chef at Doncaster when myself and my partner were staying overnight at the adjacent Travelodge. We were hungry and thought we'd give the Little Chef a...

“The not so little chef!!!”

published 24/02/2004

ProFood is freshly cooked, vouchers

ConsYou sometimes have to wait ages

I am a snob when it comes to most things in life, I should probably re-phrase that to "wannabe snob". I don't mean to be, it's just the way I am. In my job, I stay in hotels a lot, and get taken for lots of meals, so I have aquired a taste for fine wines and great food! I have a simple rule when...

Consthe food, staff and prices

…I was a gymnast. To hear the rest of the story, scroll to the end. For the op itself, keep reading. Almost all motorway service stations these days seem to have a Little Chef somewhere inside, and numerous winding country roads are home to them too. Although we drove past a million on the...
