Trivia and History

Subway car wash.
The Subway store here is a converted car wash.

The service station was built by Kelly's Kitchen in partnership with Petrofina in around 1988. In 1989 Kelly's Kitchen applied to build a Travelodge here too.

Kelly's Kitchen were taken over by Forte shortly afterwards, who changed the restaurant to become the Lincoln branch of Little ChefHistory. A Burger King was added with plans for it to become a drive thru - the drive thru didn't happen and the Burger King closed. Despite attempting to sell the unit, the Burger King reopened in November 2013.

The Little Chef became EG Diner, which closed in July 2018 ready to become a refurbished Burger King and Greggs. These reopened in October 2018. A Sainsbury's On the go also joined the site in the summer of 2019.

The Subway here is not directly attached to the filling station shop, as it is actually a converted car wash.

Likewise there was another Little Chef at the Haddington Lane junction, the Fosseway branch, which opened in around 1980 and closed in 1999.
