Trivia and History

This was one of the first Happy Eaters, built on a site called Rest-A-While in the late 1960s, adjacent to the crossroads which is now called Woodsbridge Roundabout. It was converted to a Little Chef and was re-built in 2001, becoming a hotel with a tiny restaurant area.

Despite its size, for a short while it was a Little Chef Choices site, which saw it offer Caffè Ritazza and Harry Ramsden's too.

The restaurant was acquired by Euro Garages in 2017 and was closed shortly after. After some deliberation, they changed the restaurant to a Greggs. A Subway was also later squeezed into the opposite corner on the building.

Meanwhile, the filling station was formerly branded Shell. In the early 2010s, the site was purchased by BP and in 2012 they redeveloped the site turning it into one of their BP Connect sites. As a result, the new forecourt featured a larger sales building with a M&S Simply Food and Wild Bean Café.
