The site is home to a Travelodge hotel and a Little Chef restaurant. The Little Chef first opened in 1987/88 and the Travelodge was originally a Little Chef Lodge. The Little Chef Lodge opened in 1988 and traded until 1989 until it was of course rebranded as Travelodge.
In 2002, the Little Chef recieved the New Choices Makeover, giving it some smart new furniture and access to exciting menus from Harry Ramsdens, Upper Crust, Wiseguys Pizza and Caffe Ritazza.
In the 1990s, the Little Chef recieved a Burger King outlet but it had closed in the mid 2000s, only to reopen in 2013 when it was resurrected by the Kout Food Group.
In 2013/14, the Travelodge hotel was refurbished, giving it a completely new look with updated furniture, paintwork and curtains.
