  • Hi Oliver,

    Late last year and early this year my wife and I visited every Little Chef we could before they started to close. We managed to get around 41 in total finishing up at the Warminster branch. I have photographs of the outside of each branch we visited - we managed to interview staff about their experiences and memories too. The plan is to build up a bit of an archive of photographs and memories and present it back to people.  We have a blog here: everylittlechef.tumblr.com and have started an instagram account here: https://www.instagram.com/every_little_chef/

    If you have anything you would like to share feel free to get in touch over instagram. It's such a shame that they have all closed now but hopefully we can try and preserve as much as possible.



    Thanks

  • Hi Oliver,

    I was just wondering where you had heard that both Kettering branches had closed. They were both open as of 31 March, so I'm not sure that they've closed down and if they have, then it almost definitely wasn't in March. Obviously they are all closing soon anyway, which is a massive shame!

      Ever so sorry for the late reply! Motorway Services Online confirmed that the Ketterings had closed in April. Very very sad indeed. I can confirm that Northop Hall has also gone as well. A picture was sent to me of NH and it's all boarded up. It's the end of a great British institution

  • Hello,

    Thanks for all your contributions and edits over the last few days! I'm going to be quite busy over the next couple of weeks so I won't be doing much in the way of edits etc. I was thinking we should probably split pages like Markham Moor into their separate branches. I tried this out with Barnsdale Bar yesterday and it seemed to work quite well.

    Anyway, really good job on all the work you've done! I agree with you that when it's nearly complete, we should post it on the Facebook page as it will be a great source of Little Chef information!

    • Hi Oliver,

      I've deleted the pages. It looks like someone had confused Little Chef with Bob the Builder!! Not quite sure how that's possible but they've been removed anyway.

      I've been busy the last couple of weeks, but I should hopefully be back editing later this week. You've done a great job with the pages and we nearly have all the Current Little Chef pages completed.

      I was also wondering whether you have heard any more news about Halkyn? I heard it was meant to close mid-March and re-open as a Burger King in mid-April. Has it actually closed now or is it still open for business?

      Halkyn has been given a new closure date. It will close in a few weeks

  • Hi Oliver,


    Sorry it took me so long to reply to you. I was going to message you and tell you about this Wiki but Happyeater1996 beat me to it, You guys have been really busy and the wiki looks great. Happyeater1996 contacted me about a month ago to ask me about this and it's something I'd wanted to do for years but never quite got round to so it's great that you've both taken the initiative. Naturally I'm more than happy to help and I reckon we're going to have a great resource by the time we're finished. Just going through some of your creations just now and adding in anything I can. I have a tonne of stuff for Colsterworth for you!

    • Hello Alan, Could you please check out the New Fox North page. I think some information could be wrong. I try to edit it but can't word It correctly and as your good at wording things I thought you'd be able to help edit New Fox North

      Thanks!

    • Hello Alan,

      I have created the Malton page and explained that it was the second on the A64 to open and presumed that Bramham (A64 near Tadcaster) was already operating at the time of Malton opening. Is this correct? Do you know when Bramham opened? Also please check out the Malton page to see if it is OK

      Regards

  • Hello, just a quick word. I noticed that the image of Alwalton that you uploaded earlier can be found here. Unfortunately, this image displays the text 'All Rights Reserved' below it meaning it cannot be used without the creator's permission so it will have to be removed. It is possible to use images like this under the Fair Use law but it can become quite complicated and only takes one individual to argue that it isn't 'fair use' and report us. In future, it's best to check the licence that an image has. Do you know where you got the other photos from?

    Keep up the good work!

      Thanks again,
