This is the service area on the Oxford Ring Road. For the site in Devon, see Peartree Cross.
Once a tired Little Chef, these services were taken over by Welcome Break in 2010 and given a completely new list of brands.
Due to a shortage of space HGVs are banned from the services, but there is room for coaches.

No HGV parking is available.
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 as of January 2017 this hasn't happened.
Tesla Superchargers are due to be installed here soon.
