A typical Kelly's Kitchen building

Kelly's Kitchen was a Little Chef rival who, by 1989 operated 18 waitress service restaurants on A-roads. It's not known when the chain started but they were developed by Norfolk House and Petrofina, later bought out by Bass and then Forte in 1990/91, at which point all their restaurants were re-branded as Little Chef.

Kelly's Kitchen restaurants were all built to the same style with red brick built buildings, traditional cottage-style windows, tiled roofs which came down over the tops of the external walls and large funnel-like chimneys. They were all adjacent to Petrofina petrol stations, now Total.
