Trivia and History
For some reason, this service area has always been given undue prominence by some road atlases. It is often one of the only A-road services they mark.
This site opened in 1965 as one of the first Little Chef restaurants, at the Fourwentways crossroads, next to an existing forecourt. This was known as the Cambridge branch. Miraculously, it managed to survive the A11 being upgraded to a dual carriageway and is now tucked away on an old section of road.
The Travelodge and Burger King were added in 1998.
In 2002, a refurbishment saw it become one of the Little Chef Choices, whereby Harry Ramsden's and Caffe Ritazza were added. These were later removed, and the Burger King closed too. In 2013 the Burger King reopened.
In 2018, Euro Garages' rights to use the Little Chef name expired, so it was quickly replaced with EG Diner. The EG Diner closed in August 2018 and the whole building was refurbished, re-opening in January 2019.
A ShellRecharge electric vehicle charging point is due to be installed here soon.
