Trivia and Design

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

The service area was developed by Forte and opened in 1995 with an Esso filling station, Travelodge hotel and the Whiddon Down branch of Little ChefHistory, and was built on the original alignment of the A386 next to a property called Merrymeet. The old road layout now runs through the middle of the car park.

The Little Chef restaurant went onto gain a Coffee Tempo! concession and then Little Chef Express.

The filling station since opening has been operated by Esso themselves and included a Snack & Shop store. In 2008, the filling station was redeveloped and reopened with one of Esso's On the Run cafes which included a Costa offering.

The Little Chef closed in October 2014 and was later purchased by an independent owner. The restaurant later reopened as Hog & Hedge.

Around the same time, the filling station was acquired by Rontec who added their Shop 'n Drive store and replaced the On the Run café with a Subway store. Rontec later rebranded the store to Spar.
