Trivia and History

Little Chef Liphook.
The Little Chef.

This section of the A3 opened in 1992, and it was always going to be a target for Forte because they operated a Happy Eater on the old road in Rake. This reported a significant drop in trade as soon as the new road opened, and Forte expressed their intention to close it; it was gone by 1994.

Back in 1989, Forte had registered a plan to build a pair of Little ChefHistorys as part of a full service station here at Liphook. The northbound restaurant opened a few years later accompanied by a Travelodge and was developed under the name Griggs Green Service Station, but there was a battle to build a southbound side which was given up in 2001.

In 2010, an independent plan for a 40-bed hotel and restaurant on the southbound side was granted planning permission but was never built.

The Little Chef closed in August 2012 and the Travelodge closed in August 2013 to become Metro Inns. The restaurant was later purchased by 23.5 Degrees and opened a Starbucks store in the building on 6 February 2013. This was 23.5 Degrees' first ever store and Starbucks' first ever franchised store.

Metro Inns closed on 24 July 2017 after falling into rent arrears with the local council. The hotel is now up for sale.

Both filling stations underwent refurbishment in early 2018.
