Trivia and History

Shell filling station.
The Shell forecourt, featuring the new MVI branding in 2024.

The service area was developed by Trusthouse Forte in the early 1990s and opened in 1993 as the 'Middlewich' branch of Little Chef alongside a Travelodge hotel and Shell filling station. Trusthouse Forte had initially applied to build a Little Chef restaurant further along the A54 at M6 J18 in 1988, but this was refused planning permision.

The Little Chef restaurant was extended in 1998 and gained a Burger King franchise however this later closed in 2009. Following the closure of the Burger King, the Little Chef was one of the victims of the January 2012 closures.

Travelodge planned to extend the hotel in 2006, but later withdrew this plan.

The filling station underwent major redevelopment works in 2011 which saw the existing car wash removed to make way for a larger sales building. It gained the new MVI branding in early 2024, including the new 'floating pecten' on the canopy.

The restaurant building was later acquired by Euro Garages in late 2012, who turned the restaurant into a Starbucks store and the Burger King unit into a Subway store. The Starbucks store opened on 18 April 2013.

A small business park is accessed through the service area.
