Overshadowed by the Thickthorn park and ride is this small service area.
Trivia and History
The site was built at the same time as the Norwich Bypass, and is widely known as Norwich services.
Forte built the services as a restaurant, motel and forecourt operation. It was the new Norwich branch of Little Chef, which gained a Burger King. In 2002 it became a Little Chef Choices, gaining a Harry Ramsden's and Caffe Ritazza. These were later removed.
In 2018, Euro Garages' rights to use the Little Chef name expired, so it was quickly replaced with EG Diner. This was closed in October 2018. It is set to be replaced by Greggs and Subway in late 2018.
A McDonald's opened opposite the services in early 2018 however it isn't part of the signed service area.
Shell operate the filling station.
