Trivia and History

OK Diner branded building, with chrome-effect panels.
The OK Diner.

A pair of petrol stations were built here when the bypass of Great Casterton opened in the 1960s. The southbound side was abandoned and later demolished.

The northbound filling station was abandoned at some point during the early 1980s, and in 1989 Pace redeveloped the filling station opening a Texaco forecourt. Throughout the 2000s the site included Texaco's own-branded Star Market and offered a Coffee Nation machine.

Plans for a restaurant to join the filling station date back to 1989 when Trusthouse Forte were granted planning permission to add a restaurant here. This didn't happen and instead in 1996 OK Diner built their Tickencote branch here.

The garage was also signposted as the exit for a campsite.

Forecourt History

The forecourt rebranded to Jet in 2011, and was acquired by MRH in 2014 who rebranded the store to their Hursts own-brand. The site then transferred to Esso branding in 2016. The forecourt was sold to MFG in 2018, who rebranded the store to Londis in 2020.

MFG had intended to add two EV charging hubs here on either side of the forecourt, but these plans were later withdrawn as MFG sold the forecourt in May 2023 to Platinum Retail, to placate the Competition and Markets Authority. The site rebranded to BP with the shop becoming a SPAR store.
