Trivia and Design
Until recently, the services were advertised as being open from 11am until "late" - this has recently changed as Starbucks opens at 6am, Waitrose opens at 8am and KFC is open from 11am. These units are all closed by 11pm - Welcome Break were planning to keep the Starbucks open 24 hours a day to match all of their motorway sites but this didn't happen.
As the site is close to the centre of Oxford, it has encountered numerous problems with tourist coaches filling up the coach park.
Tesla Superchargers are due to be installed here soon.
