Trivia and History[edit]

The restaurant after it first opened.

Opened by Kelly's Kitchen 1987
Sold to Forte's Little Chef 1987
Taken over by Euro Garages 2017

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 ChefHistory. 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.

In 2017, Euro Garages purchased the restaurants, and had a year to replace the Little Chef. This didn't happen, so as time ran out they changed its name to EG Diner.

On 20th May 2018, the Burger King and EG Diner restaurants officially closed. This will be replaced by a KFC Drive Thru within the next two months which will involve a refurbishment of the current building and removal of the bin area to create a drive thru lane around the building. The building work officially begun on 4th June 2018, now with metal fences erected all around the restaurant, displaying a poster with an estimated completion time of 10 weeks.
