Trivia and History
The Milford forecourt - its name referring to the mill nearby - was built in the 1960s.
After the A11 was upgraded to a dual carriageway in 1986, the site soon gained an AJ's Family Restaurant. At the time the forecourt was branded Fina, who called it Milford services.
The AJ's was broken into on 31 August 1992 when thieves forced entry into the building and stole £400, the contents of a gaming machine and keys to the restaurant.
At one point, the Little Chef gained a takeaway service. The restaurant closed in February 2012 as part of Little Chef's major cutbacks, with this site chosen no-doubt because there was another one over the road. The building was purchased by Corsey UK in 2015 and became home to the Pancake and Waffle Shack, which closed on 6 July 2022 due to financial issues.
The filling station later changed from Fina to Total, gaining a Night & Day store. Following Total's nationwide shutdown, the site was acquired by Rontec in 2013 who rebranded the site to Esso and introduced their own branded Shop'N Drive store to the site. Rontec later rebranded the site from Esso to BP in 2018.
Five Guys have taken over the empty restaurant building, and plan to turn it into their first facility at a service area.
