Barnetby Top services
A former Little Chef restaurant situated where two major routes in Lincolnshire cross.
Trivia and History
Sometimes shortened to just Barnetby services, it opened in around 1990, with the typical A-road combination of a filling station and a Little Chef restaurant. The restaurant was housed inside of a building with a pitched roof, double front and red bricks which stood facing the eastbound M180 exit slip road.
It was planned as a motel as early as 1977, with further plans for a service station through the 1970s.
The interior of the Little Chef had darker wooden dividers and wooden beams on the ceiling. It traded for 22 years until it closed in February 2012 along with 66 other under-performing sites.
The filling station was previously branded Jet. In summer 2017, MRH gained planning permission to demolish the current filling station and the abandoned Little Chef building and open a new BP filling station. These plans were amended during 2019 to demolish the Little Chef building and replace it with a Starbucks Drive Thru. Work commenced in January 2020 with demolition of the Little Chef. The Starbucks Drive Thru is expected to open in 2020.
