Roadchef held planning permission to build an additional Costa drive thru building on each side of the road, plus a northbound drive thru McDonald's which would run a new service lane past the existing kitchen, and an additional southbound Costa drive thru using the existing kitchen. In practice only one Costa drive thru would have been built on each side, possibly in addition to the McDonald's.

The service area is built over large grounds, especially for an A-road site. Each building is divided into two restaurant units and one shopping unit, plus the toilets and game arcade.

The service area has passed between all three major operators, but it is probably better remembered for the period it was owned by Little Chef. Roadchef purchased it from them in February 2014, describing it as being in "very poor repair".

Sutton Scotney is the only trunk A-road service area that is known to have had its fuel problems displayed on the motorway electronic signs, namely on the M27 and M4. Even other service areas on the A34 haven't had this treat.

The WHSmith stores are being refurbished during March 2023, receiving the latest WHSmith branding and styling in the process. The northbound store reopened on 15 March, with the southbound store following on 28 March.
