from your location
This New Lorry Park Transport Cafe has been built because the owner wants to look after the professional driver,, it's a big undertaking and not one for the faint hearted,,, there are very very few in Britain which have this capacity and are actually owner operated. !
It requires the love of the business, which Venture capital owned operators couldn't or don't in practice touch for quality. This owner wants every meal to meet the standard he would like for himself,,, that's his determination, ,,, which is good news! The food is mainly if not all,, home made.
This new operation has 25 rooms for accommodation.
This facility is now fully operational in December 2010. It is worth mentioning that this is a good stop for those tourists who want value for money and a fair priced B&B for the night. The B&B is not en suite but two very nice and modern separate shower rooms are available with a number of fully enclosed separate showers in each, one shower room for males and one for females. Separate ablution rooms, spacious & modern are also part of the facility. Disabled have full Facilities.
Hours are Sunday to Friday 17.00hrs to 23.00hrs.
