Compared to other services on the road, Strensham sees less of a seasonal spike and is just busy all year round - good job all the old parts are gone and buried and two newer buildings are doing the job instead. Honestly, you should have seen what was there before.

The two sides of the service area are positioned about a mile apart. Originally the service area was built just like any other, if a little too close to M5 J8. However, the original set-up has been removed completely, as explained in its history.
The northbound site is also home to the Midlands Air Ambulance base which was built in 1998.
Strensham is one of Roadchef's most profitable service areas, and is a popular place to trial new ideas. McDonald's, Hot Food Co, Soho Coffee, Boots and Leon all trialled their first Roadchef branch here.
