Trivia and History[edit]

Services opened 1991
Restaurant closed 2018

This was a comprehensive site developed by Forte in 1991 with a Little ChefHistory, a Travelodge and a Shell garage (operated directly by them).

The restaurant gained a Coffee Stop, which became a Burger King franchise. In 2017, Little Chef was taken over Euro Garages who later changed it to the temporary name EG Diner, as they weren't sure what to do with such a large restaurant. In August 2018, the EG Diner permanently closed, leaving behind the Burger King. The Burger King closed two weeks later at the end of August 2018.

The whole building is currently under refurbishment and a Greggs will replace the EG Diner with the Burger King reopening after refurbishment.

A housing development is being built next to the services, which will be accessed from within it.
