Restbite is the last of Roadchef's buffet-style restaurants, with the company moving towards the counter-orientated Fresh Food Café instead.

Despite this change, some Restbites continued to see refurbishment, moving them away from a green colour scheme used when it was introduced in 2007, to a black one. Roadchef appear to be maintaining Restbite in older-style, free-flow restaurant services, and the newer options in services built around a central dining area, which is what the whole estate is moving towards.
