Sheffield services may well have been intended to be a grand hotel, but it never quite reached that status and it's now the run-of-the-mill Parkway service station.

Trivia and History

Cluck Sheffield restaurant.
The remains of Cluck.

It's built on the site of an old depot. A plan was made by Esso in 1988, and it opened the following year. Granada added a Granada Hotel with integrated restaurant shortly afterwards. Granada called it Sheffield services.

In 1994, this was sold to Forte who turned the facilities into a Travelodge and the Sheffield branch of Little Chef. Shortly afterwards, Forte were purchased by Granada anyway, who added a Burger King.

As recently as 1996, Granada promoted Sheffield as one of their major sites, giving it the same status in leaflets as their motorway service areas.

The Little Chef closed in summer 2010 and became a drive thru restaurant called 'Cluck'. Cluck closed in December 2018 and the building now lies empty. Esso continue to call the site 'Parkway services', and they are presently the main facility.
