Trivia and History
Plans for a service station at this location date back to the late 1980s where a 'motorists facility' was proposed.
In 1988, planning permission for a petrol station, restaurant, tourist information centre, picnic area and associated parking was granted. In 1990, these plans were amended to just provide a petrol station and restaurant with associated parking. The site opened in around 1992 and included an Esso filling station and the Whitchurch branch of Little Chef.
In 1995, the restaurant was extended to add a Coffee Stop to the Little Chef. The restaurant was extended again in 1998 and gained a Burger King franchise in 1999.
In 1999, plans for a 40-bed Travelodge here were granted planning permission but this was never built.
The Little Chef closed in 2012 and the building was converted to a McDonald's Drive Thru, still retaining its red brick.
In 2016, Euro Garages built a Starbucks Drive Thru next to the petrol station replacing the car wash.
