This was the self-service restaurant for Granada in the 1980s and early 1990s. It had tables with fixed seats attached and these seats were usually made out of fairly thin wood or MDF. Lighting was diner-style with an American-style lightshade over most tables. The last remaining Country Kitchen was in Stirling services, but it disappeared in the late 1990s, becoming a Fresh Express. However, much of the décor remained unchanged until Costa landed earlier this year. There are still some Country Kitchen features if you look hard enough though.

Country Kitchen was re-branded as "Granada Restaurant" at most services in the early 1990s.

The brand capitalised on the fact that operators were no longer expected to provide different restaurants for different class of customer, and they could now use one brand and apply it to everyone. Previously, Granada Chef was the name applied to its budget restaurant.
