Spur End services
A rare example of a signposted service station deep within an urban area, although as the A3060 is a local authority road some inconsistency could be expected. The "Services" signs direct traffic towards the restaurants.
The facilities are easily accessed from the A338 Bournemouth Spur Road via the Castle Lane Roundabout, but not signposted from it.
Short stay customer parking is available for cars at all facilities. No HGV parking is available.
Parking within the Burger King car park is limited to 90 minutes maximum stay and is strictly enforced by Civil Enforcement Ltd.
Customers of Toby Carvery and Travelodge are also required to provide their registration number to comply with their parking policy, which is strictly enforced by Euro Car Parks.

Trivia and History
The service area dates back to at least the early 1990s and began with a BP filling station, with the turning into it replacing some properties called Butler's Cottages. The filling station was joined by The Starfish pub and indoor soft play area and a Burger King Drive Thru with external play area in 1996, which at the time of opening was a rare example of a Burger King drive-thru in England.
The filling station went onto receive a major redevelopment in 2001 gaining a larger sales building, which later became a SPAR store.
Meanwhile, The Starfish pub and indoor play area both closed in the early 2000s and became a Toby Carvery restaurant, with the indoor play area becoming an Innkeepers Lodge. The Innkeepers Lodge later became a Travelodge in the early 2010s.
