The Milton Keynes branch was a former Little Chef restaurant located at the junction between the A5 and A4146 in the small town of Fenny Stratford near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. 

The site was first built during the 1980s by Little Chef's rival chain, Kelly's Kitchen and was a joint venture between a Brewery Company, who ran the restaurant and Petrofina, who ran the filling station. This was one of 18 Kelly's Kitchens/ Petrofina sites operating across the UK. Other examples include Black Cat, Seaton Burn and Crewe.

In 1989/90, Forte were on the hunt to expand the Little Chef chain and decided to buy out Kelly's Kitchen and rebrand all 18 restaurants as Little Chef. Kelly's Kitchen restaurants were very distinctive, housed inside a building with an overhanging roof, cottage styled windows and a large funnel-like chimney built into the wall and the roof.

Milton Keynes successfully operated for over 20 years due to its great location which satisfied travellers along both the A5 and the A4146. However, at the start of 2012, Milton Keynes was listed as one of 67 branches under review. The branch closed shortly afterwards.

The Little Chef has since been demolished and replaced by a McDonalds.
