Trivia and History

Old Little Chef.
The Little Chef in 2012.

A service station here was first developed in the early 1970s and opened with the Morcott branch of Little ChefHistory and a Texaco filling station. In 1985, there were plans to add 20 'motel units' here for overnight accommodation however these weren't added and a 40-bed Travelodge later joined the site in 1989.

The filling station was later purchased by MPK Garages in 1990 who operated the site under Total and Esso.

Following the closure of several under-performing restaurants, the Little Chef was one of a number of branches which closed in September 2012. Following the departure of the Little Chef, the Travelodge closed in July 2014 but was later purchased by Redwings Lodge who refer to this hotel as their Rutland hotel.

The former Little Chef building was later purchased by an independent owner in 2015 who refurbished the restaurant, reopening as the Country Lodge restaurant. At this point, the filling station had been acquired by MFG and was trading under the 'low price fuels' banner with a Costcutter store. The restaurant was later extended in 2016 to add en-suite accommodation.

MFG added Murco branding as well as a Londis store in 2018. The restaurant, bar and en-suite accommodation were also sold to a new owner in the same year, and was renamed to Rutland Point in 2020.
