Trivia and History
The official name of the area is St Kew Highway, which appears to be named after the road which passes the nearby village of St Kew.
The exit here is the original route of the A39, which took a sharper bend later on. A garage was built here in the 1960s, which became the modern day service station.
Fuel has been provided by Jet and Gulf. High Noon Stores purchased the site for £1.4 million in 2016 and opened a Spar store. Unusually, the services had two stores; an own-brand Gulf Store and a Costcutter/Post Office, before the Gulf store closed in January 2017.
Euro Garages purchased this site along with three others on 24 February 2017, and it partially reopened on 10 March 2017. It was fully reopened in early April 2017 removing the Post Office in the process and adding a refurbished Spar store and a new Subway unit situated inside the Spar store. The Subway unit has since closed.
