Trivia and History

Eye Green Little Chef.
The Little Chef occupied a small corner of the hotel.

Plans for a service station here first started in 1989, before the Eye Bypass was built, with a petrol station, motel 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.

In 1996 the petrol station and McDonald's were built, with a motel planned to open separately.

A Travelodge and integrated Little ChefHistory 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.
