Trivia and History[edit]

Little Chef sign.
The Little Chef sign above the door.

The original part of the service area was developed by Kelly's Kitchen and Petrofina in around 1989. Kelly's Kitchen became the West Lynn branch of Little Chef almost immediately. In 2012 it was deemed to be under-performing and closed, becoming the McDonald's after a while.

Meanwhile there was another branch about two miles to the east. The King's Lynn branch of Little Chef opened about a year earlier, probably hoping to compete with Kelly's Kitchen. It lasted until 1996 when it was closed in favour of the larger West Lynn branch (although the King's Lynn branch was briefly brought back as a Burger King).

The Petrofina became Total and then changed to Shell in December 2012.
