It has always been a pleasure to have a meal at this Little Chef and last Thursday was no different - tasty food which was well presented and attentive staff. Sorry that it is closing in January.

we visited there this evening whilst travelling to Bristol. The deep fried food was all over cooked and tasted like old oil the ham and coleslaw were very cold and the restaurant itself was really cold. The service was ok but half hearted.
