“An Oasis in the desert”

published 21/08/2001

Very handy

Expensive

Service stations in England have often been criticised for their outrageous prices, so what do you get for your money? In the last few years I have visited Service stations up and down the country, mainly due to weekend breaks with my girlfriend. Travelling for hours can eventually drive you...

“Wee stop wonderland”

published 14/09/2001

great food

pricey sandwiches, FORMICA

Service stations; a very big car park, full of very small parking spaces, 40 toilets decked out in formica, peach for gals, blue for boys, (with those little adverts for breakdown coverage on the back of the door), Sock shop, mobile phone retailer, Burger King and extortionately priced shop. You...

“THE FRENCH DO IT BETTER.”

published 30/07/2001

Great driving experience.

You can get tired easily.

I have driven to Spain for my holidays on four occasions and the worst part of the journey is getting to Dover. I have driven from Tyneside and lately from Suffolk (I moved home). I have managed to drive from Suffolk to the Costa Brava in 19 hours with generous stops but I suggest that you take a...

“A Costly Convenience”

published 22/04/2001

Let me start by saying that I like others do find the cost of service stations to be extortionate. But I do see the reasoning behind them. Service stations cost massive amounts to build, they have to build exits and entries from the Motorway and have stringent regulations to comply with. They are...

Good

A stop could save your life...

...and leave you bankrupt!

Many of you will have seen these signs as you travel across the country's extensive network of Motorways. The advice is remarkably sound, and, having experienced the perils of tiredness taking over, I wholeheartedly support the campaign. However, when I take a rest stop, I expect to find adequate...

Satisfactory

break

expensive

Motorway service stations are a complete and utter rip off. They have the monopoly on everything on the motorway. You stop for a break and suddenly your wallet is empty. Don’t get me wrong motorway services are an essential part of the transport system and without them there would probably...

Not for me

published 16/04/2008

WESTMORELAND SERVICES ON THE M6 IN CUMBRIA. On the surface this looks like a charming, one-off service station. Apparently family-run with a quaint farm shop and homely atmosphere. However, our experience last Saturday (12.4.08) was anything but when three of us were struck down with food poisoning after eating at the hot food counter in their self-service restaurant. If I could definitely prove it was these buggers which poisoned me (which is almost impossible) I would sue them to kingdom come and back for the three days off work I've missed and the misery of vomitting and shitting continuously for 24 hours!
