Trivia & History

Little Chef/Granada Era

Also known as Raglan services, it was taken on by Granada as part of their grand expansion and was a bit unloved when a MSO member visited in July 2012. The Burger King logo on the sign in the car park had changed to the new Little Chef logo, and all Burger King branding had gone leaving Monmouth a little bit bare. In 2012, The Coffee Tempo! here was also replaced with Little Chef Express along with 10 other former Coffee Tempo! sites.

The Little Chef & Total filling station closed here on 24th September 2012, leaving only the Travelodge on the eastbound side. Finally, in summer 2013, the Travelodge on the eastbound side closed, meaning that as of summer 2013, Monmouth services were left derelict.

The future of Monmouth

In September 2013, Euro Garages took over the services. Then, in late April 2015, they demolished the old buildings and rebuilt them, with Starbucks, Subway and Greggs all being introduced to the site, similar to Rivington. The northbound services opened on 16th March 2016 and the southbound building opened on 21st May 2016. A hotel called 'Raglan Lodge' is due to open on the north side soon.
