Having stayed at the Travelodge in Adlington Cheshire the Little Chef is next door. So my husband and I decided to have a full cooked breakfast before our departure. We walked across the car park and entered the Little Chef at which point a waitress ushered us to our seats. She handed us some menus and immediately took our drinks order. On returning with the drinks she then took our breakfast order - quite simple - 2 early starters, a portion of mushrooms and two slices of toast. By the time the food had arrived the tea had been drunk, so we asked for another 2 pots of tea. I don't know why they insist on using these small teapots as half the contents end up on the table as you pour the tea out. The breakfast did not look very appetising, the food was served on small plates and everything seemed to be floating in beans, we also had no cutlery. By the time she had got back with the tea the toast had still not arrived, neither had the mushrooms! When I asked about the cutlery she pointed to another table and said "there's some there". I got the cutlery, the toast and mushrooms had still not arrived! My husband then started to question the breakfast that was served as it looked like a child's portion at which point she got very angry, stormed towards the chef who then told us to leave.
We did and we won't be going back again.
This is the worst Little Chef I have been to, and obviously gives an awful impression of the company. The staff here could do with visiting the Little Chef at Bangor to see how the food should be cooked and how the staff respond to the customers.
Summary: Some are great places to eat others need to be avoided like the plague
