Trivia and History
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 Chef. 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, but it 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.
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.
