Not to be confused with the smaller Eye services on the A15, this is Eye Green, just north of a roundabout at Eye.
Although the approach signs state that HGVs are banned from the services, the filling station does have HGV pumps.
Short stay customer parking is available for cars. No HGV or overnight parking is available.

Trivia and History
Plans for a service station here first started in 1989, before the Eye Bypass was built, with a petrol station, hotel and restaurant planned to be built next to the existing council depot. It was designed by London Brick Property Limited and planning permission was refused.
An Esso filling station and McDonald's were built, and opened in 1996, with a hotel planned to open separately.
A Travelodge and integrated Little Chef were built in 2001. Originally the 36-seat restaurant would have been at the back of the building, but it was moved to the side. It was one of the last Little Chefs to open; a tiny restaurant provided for the benefit of the hotel.
For a short while it became a Little Chef Choices site, meaning the menu offered Caffè Ritazza and Harry Ramsden's too. The restaurant withstood competition from the McDonald's next door for a long time, but it closed in 2017 as part of the brand's shut-down. It was replaced by Starbucks.
The filling station previously included a Snack & Shop store. In 2014, it was acquired by Euro Garages who rebranded the store to Spar and added a Subway store inside. On 15 August 2017, Euro Garages' 114th Greggs store was added in an extension to the sales building.
