Big Run To Little Chef

Big Run to Little Chef - By Fatwomble

How could we pass up a chance to take a drive out to Popham to sample the new menu devised by Heston Bluminhell.

16 Cars turned up in a Winchester lay-by on a cold Sunday morning ready to take the scenic route there. The pace was restrained due to the sub zero start (complaints were received for certain parties that I was going too slow, however I didn't have traction control on my car so favoured discretion over valour).

The roads however were clear and good progress was made by all, although some obviously felt my route was too short and took a diversion via Petersfield and Winchester before finally arriving at the restaurant (Huey and Mrs Huey).

Everyone else got there without incident other than the 5 lead cars which ended up on someone's driveway having followed the wally in front.

As for the new Little Chef experience, the food was not bad (other than the strange glass like bits in Stuarts breakfast) and the service was pretty good other than the waitress who accused Fordos of telling her we didn't want the coffees we had ordered (even though she hadn't even approached us).

Not sure if it was the omlette I had but I was rather ill in the evening, I think though in future we will stick with Loomies.
