It opened in 1989 as a Kelly's Kitchen
with a Petrofina forecourt next to the roundabout. The restaurant became the Milton Keynes branch of Little ChefHistory
. It later became a Little Chef Choices
site, which saw it offer Caffe Ritazza
and Harry Ramsden's
In 2012 the Little Chef was closed and demolished. The forecourt changed from Total to Shell the following December.
The roundabout came to be known locally as Kelly's Kitchen despite it having closed in 1991. This looks likely to be added to the road signs in 2018, meaning people may start to call the services by that name too.
