Very small services located off the M6 at J16 and at the end of the Stoke D-Road, for traffic on the A500. The services do not allow lorries, but on both sides of the A500 on the other side of the motorway is a large lay-by which lorries tend to use instead.

Trivia and History
The services were built by Kelly's Kitchen in partnership with Petrofina. This was built with a large building, with an overhanging roof and a tall chimney.
As soon as it was opened, Kelly's Kitchen were purchased by Trusthouse Forte who re-branded the restaurant as Little Chef. Forte added a Travelodge next to the restaurant, which took the name Barthomley.
After Granada purchased Forte, they added a Burger King. This closed a few years later (with Burger King signage still visible but covered up), but it re-opened in 2012. Following various closures, it became the only Little Chef close to a motorway.
The Fina garage became Total. In 2012, the Total garage changed to Shell.
