Trivia and History
In 1984, Hamblin Group proposed three possible sites for an eastbound service station between here and the next roundabout, all called Sanders Lodge. This had a workshop to the west, a café in the middle and a motel behind it. In 1985, Norfolk House applied for another site here, with a slightly different building to what's there now. The hotel was added in 1988.
The restaurant was opened by Kelly's Kitchen, which became Little Chef. This closed in 2005 and was purchased by local restaurant chain Buddies USA Diner. Following the coronavirus lockdown, the restaurant permanently closed in summer 2020.
The forecourt was a Petrofina (later Total).
