|Road:||A1 between Doncaster and Pontefract|
|Address:||Great North Road|
(Google Maps link)
|Signposted from the road?||Yes|
|Services type:||Two sites located between junctions, with no public connection between them.|
An old former Little Chef restaurant and still a large service area, part of the signed route to the south.
This site is open 24hrs
The southbound site was originally a Trusthouse Forte TRSA, is very similar in design to Oxford Peartree on the A34 and was probably branded as a Welcome Break for a short time. However in the 1980s, Forte re-branded it as a Little Chef and gave it one of the original Little Chef Lodges to boot.
Siesta Inns currently operate a hotel on the Southbound side with rooms from £29.95 it has recently changed hands. The hotel was formerly a Days Inn.
The northbound side has always been a Little Chef, although it definitely closed in 2003, but was re-opened by The People's Restaurant Company in 2005 when they took control of the Little Chef brand.
There used to be a footbridge between the two sites but it was demolished a few years ago.
Both Little Chef's closed on 27th September 2012.
