Services on the A27

Below is a list of all the signposted services on the A27 between Portsmouth and Polegate.

The following roads meet the A27, and also have services guides on this website: M27 and the A3.

Farlington

Single site located at a junction. 24 hours: The filling station is open 24 hours  At Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO6 1UN. (Google Maps)
The filling station is open 24 hoursHoliday Inn ExpressbookShell, Select, Deli2go, Costa Express, Car Wash, Air1 AdBlue
Shell operate the filling station
Notes: Also accessible to traffic on the A2030. The hotel underwent a £5 million refurbishment from June 2015 until January 2016 where it was re-branded as a Holiday Inn Express.

Emsworth

Eastbound

StarbucksTravelodgebookShell, Select, Deli2go, Costa Express, Air1 AdBlueHGV parking available


BP Express operate the westbound filling station
Shell operate the eastbound filling station
Notes: The services are exactly 15 miles from the unbuilt Meon Valley services on the M27. Given that this section of A27 was planned to be part of the M27 right up until the last minute, it is quite likely that this was supposed to become a full motorway service area.

There have been several plans for a westbound service area to accompany it but finally, in early 2014, a BP filling station was built.

The Starbucks is housed in a former Little Chef building, which closed on 31 July 2012. The eastbound filling station was formerly operated by TCS.

Stockbridge

Eastbound only. No HGVs. Single site located between junctions on the Eastbound side only. 24 hours: This site is open 24 hours  Eastbound at Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 8TH. (Google Maps)
This site is open 24 hoursEsso, Spar, Costa Express, West Cornwall Pasty Company, Car Wash
Rontec operate the filling station
Notes: This is also home to a bed store which occupies a former AJ's restaurant, which then became Starvin Marvin's. There is an Esso/Spar combination forecourt on the westbound side too: these are not signed but did have the same restaurant history. Both of these were former Texaco and Co-op Food sites.

Fontwell

No HGVs. Single site located at a junction. 24 hours: The filling station is open 24 hours  At Fontwell, West Sussex, BN18 0SB. (Google Maps)

Euro Garages operate the restaurants
Notes: This is actually located off the Arundel Road. The Shell station is branded as Deli2go only with no Select branding to accompany it. There is another Travelodgebook 200 yards away from the hotel at this site. For a time, the Little Chef here was a Little Chef Choices site with Caffè Ritazza and Harry Ramsden's menus. A Coffee Tempo! was later added. The restaurants were taken over by Euro Garages in 2017 and the Little Chef is expected to close this year. It will be replaced by KFC soon.

Crossbush

Single site located at a junction. 24 hours: The filling station is open 24 hours  Between Arundel and Worthing, West Sussex, BN17 7QQ. (Google Maps)

Rontec operate the filling station
Notes: The site is a Highways Agency approved truckstop and is located off the A284. The shop here was formerly branded Mace and operated by Snax 24. The position of the services leaves space for the Arundel Bypass to be built, which was cancelled in 1996 but may be brought back. If this happens, the facilities will see a drop in passing trade.

Polegate

Single site located at a junction. 24 hours: The McDonald's and filling station are both open 24 hours  At Polegate, East Sussex, BN26 6QL. (Google Maps)

Notes: The filling station was formerly branded as Somerfield, then Total, and was the final Total site on the a-road network. The position of the services leaves space for the Polegate Bypass to be completed, if this ever happens.

Notes: The last services on the A27, located at the end of the road. There used to be a Little Chef here; it opened in 1995 and closed in 2008. It is a former Esso On the Run/Costa site, which was very briefly taken over by MRH in late 2015 and then refitted and reopened as a BP site on 10th February 2016.
