Trivia and History

Boarded-up restaurant building with an empty totem sign and posters on the wall.
The former abandoned Little Chef building before it was demolished.

The petrol station opened in the early 1990s. It was soon joined by the Coventry branch of Little Chef, which temporarily closed in June 1996, with McDonald's taking over the site for a trial.

That trial ended in January 1997, with Little Chef reopening in the building shortly after. This time it lasted until August 2007, when it was abandoned after a fire. From 2012, MFG used a section of the former totem pole to advertise their Subway.

The former restaurant building remained empty until early 2019 when MFG demolished the building and built a new Starbucks Drive Thru in its place, with the store opening on 20 February 2020.

Forecourt History

The filling station was previously branded Texaco, before rebranding to Murco in 2010. During this time, the shop was branded Costcutter Express, with a Subway drive thru which wrapped itself around the shop building.

The site was acquired by MFG in late 2014 as part of their purchase of Murco and its assets, and they converted the site to BP in early 2015. They operate it as their Binley Woods site.

MFG then later removed the Subway in 2018 before redeveloping the filling station in autumn 2019, demolishing the existing sales building and replacing it with a new Londis store with a Greggs concession.
