Martlesham Heath services
Martlesham Heath retail park has grown around one of the roundabouts on the A12, but it includes a signed service area. As a result there is competition from the Tesco Extra across the road.

Trivia and History
The two facilities were built as a Happy Eater and an accompanying petrol station. The restaurant became the Martlesham branch of Little Chef in 1996, which gained a Burger King, but the restaurant closed in 2007, and is now the KFC.
Between 1975 and 1989 Little Chef attempted several times to build a restaurant just north of here on Grove Road, both next to the petrol stations or on the roundabout. They were probably motivated by competition here.
