Chicklade Service Station
Trivia and History
The Pace forecourt.
Chicklade was a small branch of Little Chef. It opened in the late 1960s and lasted until September 2012, when there was a wave of closures of under-performing restaurants. Chicklade was lucky to survive this long as it had a partner site two miles down the road at West Knoyle which was refurbished to a much higher standard.
When the Little Chef closed the service area was removed from Ordnance Survey maps.
The restaurant re-opened in 2013 as Eat & Go, but then closed after a large fire on 10 July 2017. It has since reopened.
The forecourt was previously branded Esso, Q8 and Pace. When it was an Esso (in the 1980s), the Little Chef logo was displayed prominently around the forecourt.
