We called in here for Breakfast. I used to use it a lot on business trips and preferred it to Popham. It was quiet and the staff friendly and efficient. However, the breakfasts themselves .... whilst beautifully cooked and presented, seemed to be slipping from the quality standard of the older Little Chef. The sausage and bacon were not as... More

This used to be one of the best Little chef restaurants but how things have changed in a few years. The restaurant was dark and dismal looking, it appeared as if many lights were broken. On closer inspection, it may be that some of the lights were not switched on, possibly to hide the dusty, grimy and generally unkempt nature... More

We stopped on our way to a holiday. The staff were really helpful. The food was ok but I wouldn't say tasty. All a bit plain which I don't think is the chef's fault but the quality of the food. Service was quick though!

Well, this isn't what I expected to be writing.... First impressions aren't great - the building is 'tired'. But to our surprise the service was good and the food was excellent! Larger than expected portions, nicely presented & well cooked. Little Chef: this place is crying out for some modest investment in the building - the staff during our visit... More

We stopped at the nearby Travelodge overnight on a trip to Stonehenge. Little Chef was the obvious choice for breakfast as it was a walk across the car park. We had a very good breakfast. It was busy, but the waitress said hello when we arrived and said she would be with us in a couple of minutes. Our breakfast... More
