|Location||Bardon Mill, Hexham|
The Little Chef at Bardon Mill first opened in 1980/81. The restaurant was housed inside a small, triangular building with a single front, pitched roof, wooden gable and large windows. As for the interior, it had the usual 1980s decor with the furniture, lampshades and curtains dating back from around that era. In terms of facilities, a small filling station was built directly opposite the Little Chef. This presented a great opportunity for Little Chef to attract extra custom from the facility.
The Little Chef at Bardon Mill was positioned in the perfect place in terms of location. For starters, it was positioned next to a single carriageway road, meaning that the restaurant could be easily accessed by all traffic from the A69. Also, the restaurant was surrounded by some beautiful Northumbrian Hills, meaning that travellers could enjoy the view whilst dining.
In early August 2017, Bardon Mill closed down following the takeover by Euro Garages. It is set to re-open as a Starbucks in late September/early October.
