Trivia and History
Outline planning permission for a filling station and restaurant on part of Waresley Green Farm was first sought in 1988. Permission was granted after an inquiry.
Esso picked up the planning permission and developed one of their forecourts along with parking for all vehicles here, opening in late 1992. The site included Esso's Snack & Shop offering until 2009, when it was redeveloped to gain a larger sales building with an On the Run café and a Costa offering.
The filling station was acquired by Euro Garages in late 2015, who rebranded the shop to SPAR and replaced the On the Run café with Greggs and Subway concessions. The HGV parking area was removed shortly after the takeover and Euro Garages built a Starbucks Drive Thru in its place, which opened on 30 March 2018.
The SPAR store was replaced with an Asda On the Move store in late November 2021. It was the second store in the UK to open as a premium Asda On the Move store with its additional 'Asda Extra Special' range. EG Group also added a jet wash to the forecourt.
A LEON Coffee machine trial was introduced in summer 2022, replacing the former Starbucks on the Go machines. If successful, EG Group intend to roll-out LEON Coffee to replace Starbucks on the Go across their network.
Half a mile south of here is the former Hartlebury branch of Little Chef and a Travelodge hotel, which also nearly gained a filling station in the 1990s. That Little Chef closed in 2012 as part of a closure of underperforming restaurants and is now home to Royal Spice.
