Trivia & History
The services were built by Pavilion and then sold off to Forte, who branded them as Happy Eater and then Little Chef (for some period included a Burger King as well). In 2012 the filling station was sold by previous owners TCS and in the process the forecourt was changed from Total to Shell.
There is a smaller service area on the A46 north-eastbound too which was originally an AJ's, then a Little Chef and is now an Indian restaurant with Murco and Costcutter filling station (with Jet Wash) which are open 24hrs.
