Forte planned a service area for the new A421 Marston Moretaine Bypass. It opened in March 1988 with a large Little ChefHistory restaurant, a Travelodge hotel and a Fina filling station, with "a PUNCH station!" written across its canopy.

The site was built to the north of the new Marston Moretaine Roundabout, on Beancroft Road, with a restaurant overlooking the road. The junction was upgraded in 2010, with the service area being accessed from a new interchange.

The filling station went onto become Total but was later sold to Shell in 2012 following Total's nationwide shutdown.

Restaurant History

A Burger King was added in 1998, but removed in the 2000s. This was replaced by Coffee Tempo! but the Burger King was brought back in 2012.

The Little Chef became the first ever Little Chef Choices site in 2002, which saw it gain a Harry Ramsden's and Caffè Ritazza. It reported a 30% uplift in sales, but the choice was soon removed.

Euro Garages took over the building in In January 2017, and it was one of the last Little Chefs to continue trading, lasting right up until EG Group's use of the brand expired. It's thought their preferred franchise, Starbucks, didn't want to share the building with the profitable Burger King.

The building closed on 20 July 2018, with the Burger King reopening alongside a new Greggs store in October 2018. A Sainsbury's On the Go store was later added in summer 2019. The Sainsbury's On the Go store was rebranded to SPAR in 2021, before the store permanently closed in late 2021.
