The eastbound services are a former Little ChefHistory site; it closed in April 2017 reopened as a Starbucks in June 2017. In 2012, A Little Chef Express was introduced on the eastbound side along with 10 other Little Chef sites.

The eastbound filling station closed on 23 May 2016 for a major refurbishment to the pumps, tanks and shop, and reopened in early October 2016 with these improved facilities.

The westbound services consist of several separate facilities built on a large hill. The Subway/Costa claims to be the main public facility.
