Trivia and History

Spice Hut restaurant.
The former AJ's/Little Chef restaurant, now Spice Hut.

The site was planned by a local developer in 1984, on a parcel of land between the road and the canal. It was known as Open Pastures service station.

It may have opened with a transport café, but within a few years it was trading as an AJ's family restaurant. In 1997 it became a Little Chef, who referred to it as their Buckingham branch, with their other branch in Buckingham closing at the same time. In 1999 it closed and the old branch re-opened. The restaurant at this site is now Spice Hut.

In 1990 the Deanshanger Bypass opened, complicated the road layout here slightly by diverting the course of the A422.

The hotel has been branded Deanshanger Motel, Shires Inn, Comfort Inn and now Hotel MK. It is owned by Shires Investments Ltd.

The forecourt was previously branded Shell, then Murco with a Costcutter Express store until around 2014. Murco were then acquired by MFG who rebranded the site to BP, with the store becoming a Londis. MFG then later rebranded the site to Esso in 2018.
