The services were built by Granada in 1988/89 to coincide with the completion of the Edinburgh City Bypass and A1 Musselburgh Bypass. The restaurant, under Granada ownership became Scotland's only AJ's in 1992, gained a Burger King and then had the AJ's changed to a Little Chef by Granada in 1996. Like Colsterworth services, Musselburgh was sold off by Granada/Moto in 2002 along with the Little Chef brand, which closed in 2010.
