Trivia and History
After the A30 bypass of Victoria was built, a Little Chef and petrol station in the town (known as 'Mid Cornwall services') received a significant drop in trade. To make up for it, a large service area was proposed at the junction with the new road. It was officially opened on 1 July 2014, but the facilities were open from 24 June.
It was originally set to include a Burger King and is set to feature a Tourist Information Centre. Construction started on a Holiday Inn Express hotel in 2019, which was due to open on 29th February 2020 but was pushed back to April 2020. It was then further delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, eventually opening its doors on Saturday 4 July 2020.
Woody's opened on 8 July 2016, and it was an external store which sells timber items however this has since closed. The external store is now being used as Teddy Freddy’s Barber Hut.
The Cornish Kitchen, which was a café, closed in March 2020. Cornwall's only Greggs store replaced it in October 2020.
A Costa Drive Thru was added at the back of the services here in August 2020.
The Clip n’ Climb section of Indoor Active closed here on Sunday 3 January 2021 and is set to be replaced by a Co-op Food store opening later in the year.
