Trivia and History[edit]

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. This and the forecourt are run by Rontec.

There is a Brewers Fayre, McDonald's and Premier Inn on the opposite side of the roundabout, which are not part of the services. Likewise there was another Little Chef at the Haddington Lane junction, the Fosseway branch, which opened in around 1980 and closed in 1999.
