Trivia and History

Cars parked under a Texaco-branded filling station, with snow on the ground. A sign says The Bridge Cafe Bistro Open.
The forecourt with Texaco branding, pictured in 2005.

The filling station here dates back to at least the 1950s and was formerly home to Newby Bridge Motors.

Planning permission was granted for a 16-bed hotel to be added to the site in 1991, but this wasn't built. There were also plans in 1999 to convert part of the café into a toy and teddy bear museum, but these plans were later withdrawn.

The site was formerly branded Texaco and included the Bridge Café until 2010. The filling station went on to gain a Mace store the early 2010s before rebranding to Shell in 2016. The café later became a coffee lounge before eventually being closed to the public.

The site was acquired by MFG from AUK Investments Limited in December 2020. During early 2021, it underwent refurbishment, reopening on 18 February 2021 with new Budgens and Greggs stores in the former redundant café space.
