Kelly's Kitchen was a waitress service restaurant chain with 18 branches by 1989.
They were developed by Norfolk House and Petrofina, providing food and fuel, and became a rival to Little Chef. Their 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.
The brand was bought out by Bass, who were themselves purchased by Trusthouse Forte. Kelly's Kitchen had a number of outstanding planning permissions which were included in the sale.
Forte changed all the restaurants to become Little Chefs.
