Trivia and History

Abandoned restaurant.
Some Little Chef signs stored in the former abandoned building.

The petrol station was built in the 1960s, on the old alignment of the A30. It was joined by Hayle Little ChefHistory in 1989.

The Premier Inn, adjoining pub and McDonald's all opened around 2000.

Facing increased competition (especially as the McDonald's is more visible), the Little Chef closed in 2004. Travelodge then built a hotel in the former restaurant's car park, and plans were made for the Little Chef to reopen to coincide with the hotel opening. However, the owners of Little Chef got into financial difficulties and the restaurant remained closed. The building was filled with original signs, equipment and promotional materials, which remained there for a long time, even after every other Little Chef had closed.

In January 2019, Euro Garages were granted planning permission by Cornwall Council to demolish the former Little Chef building and replace it with a Starbucks Drive Thru. These demolition works commenced in September 2019 and the new Starbucks Drive Thru opened at 8am on Friday 20 December 2019.
