Trivia and History

Closed restaurant.
The Little Chef after it closed.

When the Maresfield Bypass was built, provision was included for a service area here. The finished road had an embankment provided for the slip roads. Plans started in 1985, put forward by Norfolk House and Forte, and the site eventually opened in 1998 with a Little Chef and a Total filling station.

The Little Chef, which looked sunk down away from the road, used their newest generation of prefabricated building design, with what they called a "traditional look" and a fast construction time. It quickly gained a Burger King Drive Thru but the whole building closed in 2010. There was a plan for it to be converted to a KFC, but it re-opened two years later as a McDonald's Drive Thru instead.

Since 2012 the petrol station has been branded Shell. The filling station closed in late 2018 for major refurbishment works reopening on 22 February 2019 with a refurbished forecourt and Little Waitrose & Partners branded store. A Shell Recharge electric vehicle charging bay was later added to the back of the forecourt in 2021.
