Trivia and History

Just a mile west of Solstice, this site is located on the A303 eastbound, but immediately after a roundabout and with a link back to it. Inside the services is an odd road layout, offering parking spaces in many different places.

It opened in 1990 as the Amesbury branch of Little Chef. This gained a Burger King, then Harry Ramsden's and Caffe Ritazza as part of Little Chef Choices. A Coffee Tempo! was later added. In 2011, it received a thorough refurbishment as part of the Wonderfully British project, where it gained a Good To Go.

The Little Chef closed with the other remaining restaurants to fall under the holding name, EG Diner. It is due to eventually become a Starbucks.

Despite the name Amesbury being well-used, the roundabout and services are officially called Countess. The motel here is very close to Stonehenge and sometimes takes that name.
