Tag Archives: Coq au Vin

Great food, sensible prices

Finally, we made it to the famous Little Chef at Popham.You can’t miss it as the sign is unique [see below].

Lunch on Monday was really great. Fantastic service and delicious food. It was a world away from so many roadside eateries, and the countless other mediocre meals served up daily in restaurants and pubs all over the country to the unsuspecting British public and tourists. I had the Coq au Vin with tasty and fluffy mashed potatoes and excellent peas.

A freshly cooked main course is served up for under a tennner and if all meals out were like this when we went out to eat life would be so very much better. As it is we frequently struggle to eat as well out as we do at home. Pubs and restaurants are rarely visited more than once, sometimes only twice.

Be assured Little Chef @ Popham, we will be back and we urge anyone who is passing westwards down the M3 and onto the A303 to stop for a meal. If you are keen to have a traditional LC fry up then you still can but I urge you to try a real meal from the menu. Next time I shall to try the signature dish. We did not try a pudding as we knew we’d be out again for a meal in the evening, but hope to next time.

The family will tell you what a very bad customer I can be when out for a meal but it is only because the food and service is often so lacking. The last previously good place we went to delivered a human hair under my salad… As I finished the salad I found the hair.. and no¬† I did not have pudding after that, you can imagine I did not feel like it.

Keep up the good work Popham LC and grateful thanks to Heston Blumenthal and Channel 4!
