HistoryEdit

The Little Chef first opened between 1968 and 1972 in a small, white, rectangular building, typical of Little Chef's house style of the time. It was the, slightly newer, partner of the North Muskham branch, which is located on the southbound side of the A1 but is now closed.

According to the BBC Domesday report of 1986 the restaurant served on average 400 customers a day although this could rise to 800 in the summer months. A sample from the Children's menu of the time is shown below
