Rating: See the reviews

Knutsford is an old service area with the restaurant on the bridge. The services are very close to J19, and the northbound onslip is very short.

There is very little space for lorries in the services (hence a half-hearted ban on them), so instead lorries are directed to Moto's nearby Lymm Truckstop.

Full details: History:Knutsford

The stand-up comedy show 'Rhod Gilbert and the Award-Winning Mince Pie' is based entirely on his experience here, although he talks about service stations in general.

On the 9 December 2004 an M&S Simply Food opened here - Moto's fourth at the time. The large restaurant was later shrank down to make space for Greggs and Costa. Together with the M&S, this makes up the bridge-based food court.

The northbound side has two female toilet blocks: an older one underneath the bridge and a newer one by the hotel.

A Costa Drive Thru opened on the northbound side in Spring 2019. A southbound one is due to join it soon.
