Widely known as Huntingdon services, this site was located on the eastbound side of the A14 Fenstanton Bypass, within what was known as junction 27. The entrance is direct from the road and the exit leads to the old Cambridge Road.

On 9 December 2019 the new A14 opened, and the road past Fenstanton became a local road called the A1307. It remains to be seen how much traffic will pass by here and want to stop at the services, but the recent refurbishment suggests the owners are hoping to pick up some local traffic.

History

The site opened in 1989 as the common combination of a Shell forecourt, a Travelodge motel and Little ChefHistory - known as the Huntingdon branch. It was the eastbound partner of Abbots, built a few miles to the west, and opened at the same time.

The Huntingdon branch was later painted blue by Forte in an attempt to attract more formal diners in the evening. When Granada took over they undid this, but they kept the furniture and introduced a Burger King franchise.

In 2006 a Coffee Tempo! was added, but in 2012 it became a Little Chef Express.

The amenity building was taken over by Euro Garages in 2017, who were forced to change Little Chef's name to EG Diner. The EG Diner and Burger King both closed in summer 2018 for refurbishment and later reopened as a Burger King, Subway and Greggs combination site.
