Not a lot to say. All meals were really substantial platefuls. Tasty and staff were very aware of your presence

Stopped here twice in the last couple of weeks before fishing on the Avon. Ideal for fishermen as open - on the dot - at 7 am. In Ringwood itself have not found anywhere open before 8- shame on you cafés. Little chef serves nice breakfasts - had scrambled eggs first time and omelette second - both cooked from fresh....

Didn't stay here only stopped for brunch at Little Chef. It was delightful and service was good and food tasted lovely. Not what I remember from the past. Would thoroughly recommend this Little Chef as Service was polite and friendly. Restaurant was clean as were the toilets

Reasonably good chips and tea. Excellent for pit stop. Right on the A31, next to Travelodge. Easy access and good parling. Would go again.

Typical Little Chef but ideally placed when staying in Travelodge (in the same building). Friendly staff and very efficient service - ample parking

Stay in the Travelodge next door for a night, so had dinner and breakfast here. The staff where great, with smiling and a warm welcome. Food was very good, served fast fresh and hot. Only thing that let the place down was the décor it needed a overhaul.

Ate breakfast here as we were staying nearby. I hadn't realised Little Chefs still existed but there seem to be loads in this part of Dorset! The restaurant's in need of a refurb - unpleasantly stained ceiling and rips in the seats. Coffee was pretty poor - I asked the waitress twice if Little Chefs still did cafetieres of coffee,...

Travelling from Kent to Cornwall, I made an early start with the intention of finding a Little Chef for breakfast. I've become too accustomed to stopping at motorway services and being ripped off with prices so a Little Chef is a fine alternative. This restaurant was clean and the staff were very attentive. I had scrambled eggs in toast with... More

When staying at the Travelodge next door, give this place a miss. They should be done under the trade description act by calling this chain of café "Little Chef" nothing could be further from the truth. Eggs still snotty on the yokes, chips cold and still a bit hard (or frozen) in the middle, bread & butter! at £1.50 was... More
