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. Former Little Chef site, it closed on 31st July 2012 and is now owned and operated by Starbucks. The eastbound filling station was formerly operated by TCS.

The Shell & BP filling stations are both open 24hrs
