The Littleton branch was a former Little Chef restaurant located on the A51 near Chester, Cheshire.
The Little Chef at Littleton first opened between 1972 and 1976 and was housed in a converted bungalow with a pyramid shaped roof and large windows. The Little Chef was a lone stander with no other facilities to accompany the restaurant. However, the Little Chef was located next to a large population source in the form of Chester and was positioned on a single carriageway road so it should've been easy to access. The Little Chef was reasonably busy and proved to be a fairly successful site. Notice the totem sign at the entrance looks somewhat different and slightly shorter than average - only showing the 'Little Chef' logo with no other details shown below it (see picture).
However in 2004, Permira of Canada decided to sell 131 Little Chef sites around the UK and unfortunately the Little Chef at Littleton was on the closure list. However, good news came in 2006 when The People's Restaurant Group decided to reopen the Little Chef at Littleton. As the Little Chef was still fully furnished, all the restaurant owners had to do was give the interior a lick of paint and all was good.
Sadly, the Little Chef was short lived as after four years since its reopening in 2006, the Little Chef closed once again, but this time forever. The Little Chef closed in 2010 and the site has remained empty until it was finally demolished in 2015.
