Trivia and History

Sutterton Little Chef.
The Little Chef in 2011.

In the 1960s a garage opened in the corner of this junction, replacing an existing building.

Meanwhile, about a mile to the east, the Algarkirk branch of Little ChefHistory opened in around 1970, also known as Thorley Farm services. It was a simple, small building with a car park. When the newly realigned A16 opened, Little Chef saw an opportunity to move out of the unsuitably small building and to build a new one here at Sutterton. The Sutterton branch of Little ChefHistory opened in 1991 alongside a new filling station forming Sutterton services and the old one became Steve Thorley Potato Equipment. The new branch later went onto gain a Burger King franchise.

The filling station was formerly branded as Texaco until the early 2010s when the site was bought by BP who added a Wild Bean Café. The site was later acquired by MRH who added their Hursts branded store. This meant that the site became a rare example of a Wild Bean Café that was not paired with M&S Simply Food or BP Connect. The Wild Bean Café lasted until 2019 when it was replaced by a hot food counter and Costa Express machine.

In January 2017, the Little Chef and Burger King were acquired by Euro Garages who only had the rights to the Little Chef brand name for a year so in January 2018 the Little Chef had to become an EG Diner. In August 2018, the diner closed alongside the Burger King. Euro Garages then refurbished the site and on 10 October 2018, an official opening ceremony was held with representatives from Boston Borough Council in attendance with the Burger King re-opening alongside new Greggs and Subway stores which replaced the diner in what Euro Garages described as a new 'food-to-go station'.

In June 2018, the filling station was acquired by MFG following the merger of MRH and MFG. In 2020, MFG rebranded the store to Londis.

In late 2020, just over 2 years after their major 'food-to-go station' refurbishment, Euro Garages permanently closed the Greggs and Subway stores.

Rival facilities

During summer 2018, construction began on a brand new site on the south-west corner of the roundabout here. The new site, known as Sutterton Truck Port, partly opened on 25 June 2019 and offers two forecourts: a Shell filling station operated by AKV Services Ltd. for small vehicles which includes a Budgens branded store and a Starbucks Drive Thru café, operated by Kbeverage, attached to the back of the filling station building and an Inver filling station exclusively for HGVs.

A McDonald's Drive Thru restaurant opened at the back of the site in September 2019. The secure overnight HGV parking and HGV forecourt were also due to open in September 2019 however this was delayed and opened in early 2020. The truck port is signed from the roundabout and on both the A16 and A17 and was erected before the site even opened.

V-Ate Pit Stop Diner opened on 21 September 2020 situated inside the truck forecourt building.
