Trivia and History
With the Sleaford Bypass under construction in the 1980s, developers looked at possible service areas.
Limes Developments Ltd were granted planning permission for a restaurant, hotel and filling station in March 1990. This was taken up by Trusthouse Forte who opened a new branch of Little Chef in 1991. This was to replace the original Sleaford branch, which had been demolished to make way for the new road.
The Little Chef gained a Burger King franchise in 1998, which at one stage looked likely to gain a drive thru lane. It became a Little Chef Choices site in 2002, which saw it briefly gain Caffè Ritazza and Harry Ramsden's menus.
By the early 2000s, the filling station had rebranded to Total. Following Total's nationwide shutdown, the forecourt was acquired by Rontec in early 2013 who rebranded it to Esso. They introduced their own brand Shop'N Drive to the site and added a Subway store.
The restaurant was acquired by Euro Garages in January 2017. Euro Garages' aim to rebrand all of their Little Chef restaurants faltered, partly because their preferred brand partner, Starbucks, didn't want to share with the Burger King. Their right to use the Little Chef name expired in January 2018, and as a result, the Little Chef was quickly changed to EG Diner.
EG Diner and its Burger King franchise both closed in May 2018. The building reopened in June 2018 with a refurbished Burger King and a new KFC Drive Thru.
Rontec rebranded the filling station from Esso to BP in late 2018.
