The original Eynsham Little Chef is a little to the west of these. It closed in 1986 and became a bungalow, but is now a restaurant. The plan was to build a new restaurant and lodge to the east of what's now Tesco (a site called 'Wasties Garage'), but instead a restaurant was built to the west of here. This one gained a Burger King and later closed and became a car dealership.

At the same time another new Little Chef was built at the westbound services, which became a café and then a shop. Meanwhile, in 1990 two different developers also applied to build new services on the A40: one north-west of the Lower Road roundabout and one west of Cuckoo Lane.
