Trivia and History

The site was built in 1991 in the corner of this busy roundabout, as the 'Kilmarnock' branch of Little ChefHistory, alongside the Travelodge hotel and a Q8 petrol station. It was built with spacious surroundings, probably to make use of all the available land, with the facilities based around a roundabout in the centre of the site.

The restaurant here had originally been planned as a Kelly's Kitchen by owners Norfolk House, intended to open in Summer 1990, but this later became the Little Chef after Trusthouse Forte purchased the Kelly's Kitchen chain.

The Little Chef closed in January 2012, and was demolished and replaced by the McDonald's. There had been a plan to try to salvage the old building but it didn't happen.

The filling station later became a BP site with a SPAR store in the mid-2000s. During late 2015, the car wash was removed to rebuild the sales shop and add a Subway store to the new sales building. The position was moved from the right of the pumps, to in front. Current forecourt owners MFG later rebranded the store to Londis in 2020.

In the 1970s there was another Little ChefHistory on the A71 a few miles to the east of here, at Galston. There was also a branch on the A77 to the south at Symington, which closed in 2004.
