Trivia & History

This was originally a Granada Hotel with an AJ's. In 1994, it was sold to Trusthouse Forte, who kitted it out with a Little Chef and Travelodge.

Granada later bought Forte, and decided to add a Burger King to the restaurant, which then closed. It then spent some time as a Little Chef Choices.

Euro Garages operate the restaurants, and are expected to close them this year.
