Trivia and History
Both service areas were built in the 1980s, with a forecourt and Happy Eater on each side. Confusingly, these became the South Cave branches of Little Chef in 1994, meaning one of the buildings at West Cave services was called South Cave East.
The eastbound side was built on a much larger plot of land, with dedicated lorry parking, a field behind the hotel and space for an additional restaurant. The parking earned it a place in the Highways Agency's 2006 truckstop guide, where it was shown as having 15 free parking spaces but no restaurant.
The additional restaurant space was never used, and the Little Chef closed in September 2012. It has been left empty since. Meanwhile the westbound restaurant closed in 2009 and is now the adult store.
The westbound petrol station was originally Mobil, becoming BP in 1997 following the merger of the two companies. The forecourt was later sold to Total in the 2000s. In late 2012, the site was acquired by MRH who rebranded the site back to BP following Total's nationwide shutdown.
The eastbound petrol station is named Beacon, though some call it Everthorpe, and has been branded Shell since opening. Travelodge call it South Cave, not to be confused with another service area.
