Trivia and History
A garage has been positioned here since the 1960s, and is positioned on what was the main A12, before the Brentwood Bypass was built.
Norfolk House Group built a Kelly's Kitchen restaurant next to the existing filling station in 1990. Fina took over the forecourt at the same time, as part of a project which had also hoped to add a 49-bed hotel in the space between the restaurant and the A12 bypass. That aspect was unable to secure planning permission.
The restaurant became the Brentwood branch of Little Chef in the following year. This gained a Burger King in 1996. That and the Little Chef restaurant closed in around 2005 and became Elvis' Diner, before becoming Mizu Noodle Bar in late 2007. A snack bar is also now often situated in its car park.
A little further along Brook Street is a former Forte Posthouse which was built in 1991 when Forte took over Kelly's Kitchen. This is now a Holiday Inn.
