Large restaurant or small service area? Inside it's hard to tell.

Trivia & History

Bangor was built by Pavilion and sold to Forte in 1994 as the company wanted to focus on motorways. Pavilion wanted £750,000 for the services, although it's not thought that they got this.

Newark suffered a similar fate.

The building design reflects its history, with a large restaurant, and a separate unit to the side of the main corridor.

Euro Garages will demolish the filling station and reopen in late 2016 with facilities including BP, Spar, Starbucks on the Go, Subway and Greggs, as well as a Starbucks drive thru next door. Wales Online has more information on this.
