A small service area positioned at the eastern end of the M180, Barnetby Top services has the ability to serve four different routes including the A180 from Grimsby, the A15 from the Humber Bridge and the M180 from Scunthorpe. The site suffers from a lack of advanced signage but nevertheless, it can still be easily seen from the interchange.
The services used to have a Little Chef/filling station combination but the restaurant ceased trading in February 2012.
The services opened in the 1980s/90s, sporting the typical A-road combination of a filling station and a Little Chef restaurant. The Little Chef here opened in 1990/91 and was housed inside of a building with a pitched roof, double front and red bricks (the typical house design of Little Chefs opening in this era of the mid 80s to early 90s) which stood facing the eastbound M180 exit slip road. The interior of the Little Chef was very distinctive here compared to most other restaurants as it had darker wooden dividers and wooden beams on the ceiling.
The Little Chef traded here for 22 years until it closed in February 2012 along with 66 other underperforming Little Chef sites which closed throughout the year.
