Opened by Kelly's Kitchen 1988
Sold to Forte's Little Chef 1990
Restaurant refurbished 2018

This was developed by Kelly's Kitchen in partnership with Petrofina. It was taken over by Forte who turned it into a Little ChefHistory, partnering it with a Travelodge and, in 1995, a Coffee Stop. Granada then added a Burger King in 1998, and the petrol station became Total and then Shell.

The Little Chef was transferred to the holding name EG Diner in January 2018, after new owners Euro Garages lost the rights to the name. With no plan for it, the EG Diner closed in October 2018 and was later replaced with a Greggs with the Burger King also receiving a refurbishment in the process.

In late 2019, Shell submitted plans to redevelop the forecourt. The plans include demolishing the existing sales building, jet wash and canopy and building a new sales building with a new canopy, pumps and 1 Shell Recharge electric vehicle charging bay. Planning permission was granted in March 2020 and work is expected to begin in 2021.
