Trivia and History

The site started out life as a transport café which dates back to at least the 1970s. Back then, the site was home to the Rendezvous Café, better known as 'Tubby's', which provided overnight parking for truck drivers. Throughout the 1980s, the owners of the café intended to add a hotel and fuelling facilities to the site to increase their custom however by the mid-1980s the café had closed. The site was later purchased by BP in 1988 who redeveloped the site into the truckstop we see today.

BP later sold the site to Nightowl in 2001, who were later acquired themselves by the Stobart Group in 2013. Stobart have since built a new transport depot on previously unused land to the south of the truckstop.
