Trivia and History

The Brewers Fayre pub-restaurant.

Glews used to be the name of a vehicle workshop located on the old A614, before it was diverted to meet the new M62. The current service area is not signposted from the motorway, but calls itself Glews services and relies on it being visible and easily accessed.

Following the opening of the most easterly section of M62 in 1976, the workshop was acquired by Jos Richardson & Sons. They went on to add a Texaco forecourt in the 1980s as well as a Vauxhall franchise. In 1990, the Richardson family demolished the original Glews Garage and added Richwood Garage, which became a Peugeot dealership.

First Expansion

The forecourt was significantly expanded in 1992 with the Richardson family purchasing neighbouring land to add additional pumps and a new convenience store, built in an usual brick building. The site also rebranded to Shell at this point. It continued to be accessed from a small stub of road that was left over from its old route, but with an additional slip road to cut the corner.

The forecourt and car dealerships were joined by a McDonald's drive-thru restaurant in 1997. The restaurant was used by the local community, and featured a McDonald's Party Bus in the car park in 1999. A Travel Inn and the Aire & Calder Brewers Fayre pub-restaurant later joined the site in 2000 creating the service area we see today. The hotel later rebranded to Premier Inn.

The forecourt sales building gained an extension in 2005, adding additional sales space and new toilets. The store was also rebranded to SPAR at this point. The food to go area later gained a refurbishment in February 2024 and now features additional offerings.

There were plans to add five business units to the south of the hotel in 2010 but these weren't built.

New Entrance

The old Peugeot dealership was demolished in the mid-2010s to make way for a large site redevelopment and re-alignment of the neighbouring A614, with Peugeot relocating to the former Vauxhall dealership. The Airmyn Road Roundabout was added to accommodate the new trade park opposite, and new 'services' signs were placed at the entrance, along with a namesake 'Glews services' bus stop. The new entrance meant realigning the exit from the forecourt, which was still loyal to the original line of the A614.

Jos Richardson then added a new secure HGV parking area and HGV forecourt in 2016, utilising the former sales space for the Richwood garage. This is accessed from the new roundabout. The company's second Subway franchise was also added to the forecourt shop at the same time.

On 20 December 2019, the Peugeot dealership permanently closed after trading at the site for 40 years. In April 2021, EG Group received planning permission to demolish the car dealership, replacing it with a Starbucks Drive Thru and a KFC Drive Thru. This was later picked up by Jos Richardson themselves, who received planning permission in October 2023 for the two drive-thrus along with an eight-bay EV charging hub as well as a 50-bay extension to their HGV parking area. A new toilet and shower block is also expected to be added, funded partly by grants from National Highways and the Department for Transport.

Works are set to commence on the former dealership site in June 2024, with the new facilities set to open in early 2025.
