Trivia and History[edit]

A417 Diner.
The A417 Diner.

The petrol station first opened in around the 1950s, along with two dwellings called The Gables. One of these was extended in 1990 to become the Duntisbourne Abbotts branch of Little Chef. This closed in around 2005 to become Olive's Family Restaurant, which itself closed in 2014 and became an American cafe.

The American Cafe became A417 Diner, with branding very similar to Little Chef's, but it has since been re-branded again.

The forecourt was previously branded Texaco.
