Trivia and History

A two-storey McDonald's restaurant.
The McDonald's restaurant.

The area around Snetterton Circuit is being developed into a business park, known as the Snetterton Heath Employment Area. This growth was mired by the abandoned Ships Galley Restaurant, uniquely shaped to look like a ship, which stood in the field opposite. That building used to face the main Snetterton Circuit and was removed when the A11 was built in the 2000s. That former restaurant was acquired by Euro Garages and demolished to create this service area.

There had previously been plans to turn the former restaurant into offices, and the first plan from Euro Garages would have had a single amenity building with five food units around it. The filling station and Starbucks Drive Thru opened in July 2019, with the McDonald's Drive Thru opening in October 2019.

The SPAR store was rebranded to an Asda On the Move store in February 2023. The forecourt later transferred into the Asda estate in March 2024, relaunching on 26 March with a new Asda Express store.

Previous Facilities

This is not the first time a service station has been built here. The southbound side of the old, single carriageway A11 London Road had a petrol station built in the 1960s, which doubled-up as an entrance to Snetterton Circuit. The Snetterton branch of Little Chef was built next to it in 1980.

When the A11 was upgraded to dual carriageway, the service area was provided with a new access from the roundabout at the new Snetterton Park junction. The forecourt was demolished shortly afterwards, and the restaurant closed in 2002. The building was re-used as Flame Restaurant, and was more recently home to a sales facility by Holbrook Leisure. The former Little Chef restaurant was later demolished in 2024 after sitting empty for a number of years, removing all traces of the original facilities.
