Trivia and History

Le Raaj Indian restaurant.
The Le Raaj Indian restaurant, situated in the former Little Chef.

This service area was developed in the early 1990s by Heron, who opened one of their forecourts in the corner of the roundabout. Trusthouse Forte later added a Little Chef and Travelodge hotel, which opened in early 1995. The forecourt had been sold to Fina by this point.

New owners Granada then added a Burger King to the Little Chef in 1999, and in the same year the forecourt rebranded to Total, following Fina's merger. The Burger King was later removed in around 2005.

The Little Chef continued to trade until the summer of 2010, when it then closed. The restaurant later became an Indian restaurant called Le Raaj.

Following Total's nationwide shutdown in 2012, the forecourt was acquired by Rontec who added their own-branded Shop'N Drive store to the site.
