Trivia and History

Planning to build a service area on the fields to the south of the roundabout here started in the late 1980s, with BP the first to propose a forecourt and restaurant in 1988. A rival plan came from Esso in 1989 for a forecourt, restaurant and hotel however both plans were refused. BP eventually gained planning permission in 1993 for a forecourt, restaurant and hotel which was built, and opened in 1994 as a BP forecourt, Travel Inn and the Monkton Lodge branch of Brewers Fayre.

The Brewers Fayre restaurant was the victim of a major fire on 2 April 2000, which saw 50 firefighters spend more than 5 hours tackling the blaze. Following the fire, the restaurant was demolished and replaced with the building we see today, opening later in the same year.

Both the hotel and restaurant later gained extensions in the early 2000s, with the hotel rebranding to Premier Inn in 2007. The forecourt sales building also gained an extension in 2008, with the site becoming a BP Connect site and gaining a M&S Simply Food store and Wild Bean Café.

2 bp pulse electric vehicle charging points are due to be installed here in 2021.
