One of Euro Garages' first examples of what modern filling stations are beginning to look like, this service area opened in 2011 and features several small buildings with various outlets, and a pub and hotel next door.
First two hours free for all vehicles, after which cars must pay £8 and HGVs, coaches and commercial vehicles must pay £14.99, or £19.99 to include a meal voucher.
Prices are paid in the Spar shop.
The fees are enforced by ANPR operated by Parking Eye.
As you head eastbound, one mile before the site at the previous roundabout, Euro Garages operate an Esso filling station with a Spar and Subway, and a Little Chef, and there is also a McDonald's and a separate Spar store, all around the officially named roundabout called McDonald's Roundabout. Euro Garages have advertisement boards located around the Esso station advising potential customers to travel on and use the Starbucks drive thru at this site.
Whitbread operate the hotel and pub.
Refurbishment of the filling station forecourt was carried out some time between 2014 and 2016 which included adding a Greggs outlet within the forecourt building.
