Trivia and Design

Hog and Hedge.
The Hog and Hedge restaurant, situated in the former Little Chef building.

The services opened in 1995, with a Little ChefHistory. This gained a Coffee Tempo! and Little Chef Express, but the branch closed in October 2014.

The filling station formerly included a Shop 'n Drive.

Running through the middle of the service area is an overgrown, abandoned road and building. This is the original alignment of the A382, with a property called Merrymeet.
