Trivia and Design

Right-hand road markings.
The eastbound car park had an unusual layout where exiting traffic drives all the way around the outside, meaning it is encouraged to drive on the right.

Leigh Delamere lends its name to Michael's former protégé in the 2020 American miniseries Your Honor. It was also the name of a character in Jasper Fforde's 2001 novel The Eyre Affair, where Mr Delamere demands that a motorway service area be named after his mother, Leigh.

On TV, Leigh Delamere was a chosen stop-off during a 2009 episode of Gavin & Stacey, a show which spoke a lot about the M4's service areas, but on this occasion the scene was actually filmed at Cardiff Gate.

An Arlo's pantry & kitchen and a Chow restaurant opened here on the westbound side on 8 March 2016 as part of a thorough refurbishment of the dining area. In early 2018, both restaurants were added to the eastbound side nearly 2 years later than the westbound side gained theirs. Both Arlo's closed in late 2019 in favour of fast food options.

In November 2019, Moto were granted planning permission to build a Costa Drive Thru on both sides here. Several locations have been suggested on both sides for the position of the drive-thru units however Moto have decided that the eastbound unit will be positioned at the back of the car park whilst the westbound unit will utilise the former police building at the back of the car park. Works are expected to commence in late 2022 for early 2023 openings on both sides.

Moto are also adding an electric vehicle charging hub on the westbound side in late 2022 as well as a new KFC restaurant on the westbound side in early 2023 and Pret A Manger units on both sides in early 2023. Leigh Delamere has also been selected as the next candidate for Moto's competitive fuel pricing project. There has also been talks to reinstate the westbound Burger King drive thru lane but this hasn't happened yet.
