The car park / lorry park is a bombsite, the crockery is chipped and dirty and the food was distinctly average. It may have changed but it the truck park is as bad as ever so I doubt the cafe has improved.

This transport cafe has loads of parking space, is large inside and beats the pacey atmosphere of motorway services anyday and the staff are more human too! They certainly know how to cook a traditional breakfast with loads of choice and fast service to boot. Proper mug of tea, coffee etc. On site facilities for lorry drivers include overnight parking with breakfast, showers and B+B with comfy clean rooms. They have recently expanded the site cafe with another room with a licensed bar, having bands performing etc. and can cater for private functions, weddings and such. I first went here for a Ton-Up Day Motorcycle event as I'm a keen biker, and the experience has brought me back time and again as it has such a great retro quality of that traditional 1950's - 60's appeal that you just don't get anywhere else this side of the Ace Cafe London :-)

WIth my wife we discovered this unassuming cafe, busy with local tradesmen and lorry drivers, right in the logistics heart of the country.
Lovely bacon butties, nice window seats, plenty of room and quiet, ideal to relax during a long car journey.
Not to be missed
