Services on the A5

Below is a list of all the signposted services on the A5 between Dunstable and Bangor.

The following roads meet the A5, and also have services guides on this website: M6, M42, M56 and the A55.

Fenny Stratford[edit]

The filling station and McDonald's are both open 24 hoursMcDonald's Drive ThruShell, Select, Deli2go, Costa Express, Car Wash
Shell operate the filling station
Notes: 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 too.

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.
