Trivia and History[edit]

Little Chef blue sky.
Inside the refurbished restaurant.

The services started out as a Happy Eater and a Texaco forecourt, where it became known as the Doncaster services, occasionally called Skellow. In 1996 it became the Doncaster branch of Little ChefHistory. The branch received investment such as air conditioning and a blue colour scheme to try to attract evening diners. This was removed after a couple of years.

The Little Chef featured a dedicated coffee shop, which became a Burger King and then Coffee Tempo!. In 2012, it was refurbished again and gained a Good to Go takeaway offer. In 2015, the Burger King reopened.

In January 2018, Euro Garages' rights to the Little Chef name expired, so it was quickly changed to EG Diner. The EG Diner closed in July 2018 and was replaced with Greggs in September 2018.

MFG operate the filling station and Euro Garages operate the restaurants.
