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 restaurant was then left abandoned for a number of years following its closure.
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 announce that the former Little Chef building was set to be replaced with a Starbucks Drive Thru. Work commenced in January 2020 with demolition of the Little Chef with the forecourt works commencing in spring 2020. The refurbished forecourt opened in August 2020 and included a rebranded Londis store. The Londis store was also MFG's first site to feature their new 'food to go' concept which includes multiple grab and go food and drink options. The Starbucks Drive Thru later opened at 8am on Monday 24 August 2020. The forecourt was also due to gain a Greggs store however this was scrapped and replaced with the grab and go options.
The filling station was previously branded Jet.
