The services are accessible to westbound traffic, but it requires quite a circuitous detour. The services consist of a hotel and petrol station on the old A31, which also takes in a couple of houses and a bus stop.
It's the former site of a transport cafe, later a Happy Eater, then a Little Chef, which was demolished to make room for an expanded forecourt. The forecourt was taken over by Euro Garages in 2015 and formerly included On the Run and Costa.
The hotel was formerly branded as a Ramada Jarvis Hotel.

Notes: The services were built at the same time as the A31 Hogs Back was upgraded to a dual carriageway, which made the previous services at Hogs Back difficult to access when travelling west.

The Little ChefHistory
closed in March 2017, but then re-opened for a short period pending a permanent closure in January 2018. The Little Chef formerly included Little Chef Express
, Burger King
and Coffee Tempo!
It was formerly the Compton Arms Hotel (which is likely to have provided fuel at some point), and appears to have become part of a larger service area with the dualling of the A31 in the 1970s, with Little Chef then moving into the main building as part of their rapid and immediate expansion. It is connected to the local area by a public footpath.
