Trivia and History

Little Chef Liphook.
The Little Chef.

The road opened with a pair of forecourts here. In 1989, Forte planned to add a pair of Little Chefs. The northbound restaurant opened a few years later accompanied by a Travelodge, but there was a battle to build a southbound side which was given up in 2001.

The Little Chef closed in August 2012 and the Travelodge closed in August 2013 to become Metro Inns. 23.5 Degreeswebsite then took over the restaurant and re-opened it as a Starbucks. Metro Inns closed in 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.
