Trivia and History

Starbucks shopping centre.
The Kingsley Village Shopping Centre next door.

The A39 and A30 used to meet in the centre of Penhale, where there was a petrol station. With the Indian Queens Bypass being planned in the early 1990s, Kingsley Developments Ltd proposed a new facility and commercial development be built at Fernside Farm. Planning permission was first requested in July 1992, with full permission being granted in January 1995.

The bypass had already opened in February 1993. During its construction, an archaeological excavation unearthed remains of the 'Penhale Round', a dry-stone structure and a stone-built hut/ancillary building which dates back to the Iron Age, possibly being built around 100 BC.

The first phase of the service area opened in late 1995, starting with a Jet forecourt. The McDonald's opened in Spring 1996, having previously been planned as a Burger King.

Phase 2 later materialised as Kingsley Village Shopping Centre, built around the original farm site. This would later include a Starbucks coffee shop that would be advertised from the neighbouring McDonald's.

The third and final phase of the development was completed in early 1996, with Whitbread Inns opening a Brewers Fayre pub-restaurant and a 40-bed Travel Inn. Both branches were named 'Penhale Round', in reference to the excavation.

The forecourt was purchased by Shell in 2010. Whitbread changed the pub branding to 'Cookhouse & Pub' in 2018.
