Little Chef Reviews
Newest Review: ... Heston inspired dishes removed, which makes sense as the customers of Little Chef expect a cheap and tasty meal. The prices remain extortionate, especially for drinks. A (small - no pot) cup of tea costs £2.10 which considering a cup of tea costs about 10p maximum to make is ridiculous. The mains are also a little expensive, my risotto for example was just over £7 and I felt the portion was too small to deserve this high pricing. All the staff at Popham were very friendly and helpful although my food did take about 30 minutes to come, which considering the restaurant was not overly busy, seemed too long. Not every resturant is as ni... more

In the past year, I have visited about 5 Little Chefs and I have generally been very impressed with the food and service received. Most recently, I visited the Little Chef in Popham on the A303, which was the first restaurant to receive the Heston Blumenthal makeover in about 2009. It is still reasonably nice but standards have clearly slipped since Heston stopped monitoring the branch as the restaurant was not very clean and one of the hand driers in the toilets were not working. The food however, is delicious and has dramatically improved in the last 5 years, the mushroom risotto which I ordered was one of the best I have ever had but the menu has clearly been ...

We stopped at the Fourwentways Little Chef on a long journey, after difficulties getting into an earlier service station en route. If we hadn't have needed a 'comfort break' we would have passed by [and would have felt better] Toilets were unimpressive - wet floors, unlockable doors, cobwebs, no soap and highly 'perfumed' in an unpleasant way. The tea was OK, but my other half determined the coffee to be undrinkable, and thought it was probably chicory. The table was sticky, and the staff too busy to get any pleasure from their work, making them look pretty much as miserable as they felt. The bacon butty was OK, and the sauce tray looked good. All in all, in the ... Read the complete review

On my many trips between Liverpool and Wolverhampton I always stop at the Whitchurch Little Chef for the Olympic breakfast.The staff are always courteous and pleasant and the food is always excellent and I have never waited more than 10 minutes.The toilets are always clean.The only criticism is please get teapots and milk jugs that pour properley.I look forward to many more visits in the future and keep my fingers crossed that the branch is not axed in the latest cost reduction excercise.

I worked in a Little Chef for 5yrs, and have to say they were worst employers I have ever had. All these complaints of people walking into filthy restaurants with disinterested staff is completely understandable, when on a 'regular' Saturday morning we were only ever allowed 1 chef and 1 waitress to be working. 2 members of staff for the whole restaurant!! Think about the amount of stress these people are under when they have a restaurant full of customers and have to serve all of them, get their drinks, cook their meals, clear their tables, do their washing up, (our dishwasher never worked) take their money, and keep everyone happy with refills etc. This wouldnt be ...
