Trivia and History

The Starbucks here is also operated by Euro Garages.

The service area is not signed from the motorway, but it is visible and advertised as a motorway facility by Euro Garages. The trend of offering fuel and a restaurant next to a motorway junction is very American in nature, and becoming increasingly common in the UK as brands such as McDonald's become more popular and planning laws are relaxed.

The Ordnance Survey now shows Markham Vale as a full motorway service station.
