|Location||Grange Moor, Huddersfield|
The Little Chef at Grange Moor first opened between 1972 and 1976, just off the Grange Moor roundabout (A637/A642 junction). Serving the shortcut between the M1 and M62 motorways and not far from Huddersfield, this was a decent location and, like so many, was next to a filling station to help attract added custom.
Built in Little Chef's flat-roofed, white painted house style of the early 70s, the restaurant typified Little Chef of this era. In 2002, Little Chef was sold by the owners Compass Catering to new owners Permira of Canada, along with Travelodge. It this time there was a cull of sites with some older, standalone sites closing and sadly Grange Moor was one of the casualties.
Since the site closed in 2002, it had been demolished and it is now occupied by an Italian restaurant called Orlando's. It is unclear if the building has been heavily modified or completely rebuilt but it certainly stands in the same place.
