After waiting ten minutes without any service at all, I asked at the counter for some service. I was told that this was on its way. Five minutes later, without even a drinks order having been taken, I again went up to the counter, suggested that at least this could be done. Instead of apologizing, which she steadfastly refused to... More

Stayed at the Travelodge next door,which has no cooking facilities,so was obliged to eat at the Little Chef next door.Haven't been in one for many years and the menu seemed remarkably familiar.Had scrambled egg and bacon and a cappuccino.Well served by a very pleasant waitress in a short time.Typical Little Chef layout.Food fine and reasonably priced.

I have been in the little chef on a number of occasions and I have been extremely. Happy with the polite friendly team who have always greeted myself my daughter and sister with a very warm welcome. I have had an Olympic breakfast on many visits and it has got to be the best breakfast around by Far! The standard... More

We were staying at the adjacent Travelodge for 2 nights and had breakfast at the Little Chef. 20% discount for customers of the Travelodge so well worth mentioning to the staff. We found the staff very helpful with local knowledge and they recommended a lovely restaurant in Llangollen which we tried and found excellent.

Filthy dirty, one not working and full. Felt the whole place needed a good clean and even the welcoming front door was grit. Decided not to stay... More

Took me about 40 minutes to get my breakfast and the restaurant wasn't particularly busy at the time. The food wasn't great but it was edible I guess and the table hadn't been wiped down. The staff didn't really seem interested in serving people either. There is free wifi though which allowed me to write this review 👍 On the... More

After a lovely weekend myself and partner stopped for a cup of tea on the home. How we wish we hadn't. This place was filthy, I have been in cleaner greasy spoons. Cutlery dirty, floor filthy, uncleaned tables. Toilets terrible, every door filthy and dirty, blocked toilets, no toilet paper. Staff indifferent, waiter had on filthy apron. We also ordered...
