Trivia and History

Little Chef restaurant.
Inside the Little Chef.

The site was built on the Oswestry Bypass in 1987 to replace facilities in Whittington which had lost its traffic to the new A5. It was proposed by Esso.

It was the Oswestry branch of Little ChefHistory, which gained a Burger King. It was built with a large tourist information centre, with a spire making it look like a supermarket of the time. The hotel was briefly branded Little Chef Lodge, but soon changed to the main Travelodge brand.

In 2001 the restaurant became a Little Chef Choices which saw it gain a Harry Ramsden's, Upper Crust and Caffe Ritazza. Those were later removed, but Coffee Tempo! was added.

Euro Garages acquired the forecourt and began adding their own catering facilities, providing a wide range of choice here. In 2017 the Little Chef was then also acquired by Euro Garages, and later became EG Diner. The EG Diner closed for the final time on the 28 October 2018. This part of the building now lays empty awaiting the decision from Euro Garages on what to do with it.
