The Route 46 has a nice location being positioned 6 miles from the M5 motorway Junction 9, and three miles from Evesham. The lorry park has quite a good surface, which would/should suit Car Transporters that have a low-slung carriage. I think those drivers would be more than happy.

The actual Transport Cafe itself has long opening hours, which are always a godsend on that horrible winters night when your running out of driving hours and need that not too far off the motorway facility, which can deliver you a hot meal, and quiet parking for the night, also fuel up the tractor unit at any hour of the day or night. A garage shop is also situated on the Fuel Station for those very late arrivals. I suggest you phone in if you are running close to the last meals now time. I am sure some flexibility will be afforded if you give the Cafe a ring.

Coach drivers can also get their passengers fed and watered, again a phone call ahead is appreciated and does ensure that all gears are engaged to serve your passengers. You will see that there are two or three areas which serve customers, a separate small coffee bar and then a larger general public Cafe, plus the professional drivers Transport Cafe which is very smart. The signposts are also shown where you enter the door, allowing you to choose which cafe you would like to use. Even though I am retired I always use Transport Cafes, they have goyta be the best!

Quoting Chris:
Don't go to vale truck stop! It's run by rude staff that demanded money for us splitting our drawbar wagon to shift stock from trl to prime.aggresive and attempting to be intimidating, what a joke. Avoid if possible.

Chris your totally in the wrong also, why do you feel you've the god dam right to drive onto a private car park and do what you want, at least have the respect to walk into the cafe and have a coffee and ask, I know for a fact there are so many companies just turn up with two lorries and start trailer changing without even asking or offering to pay, you can't go any where else onto a private car park and take liberties, so why do you feel your different, when I parked up a couple of weeks ago two live chicken lorries pulled on the car park, then ensured they were hidden behind us paid overnight parkers and then changed there trailers without even going into the cafe, absolutely disgraceful, 'why do it'

What total rubbish, I've used the Vale for 4 years 2 nights a weeks and it's a wonderful friendly family run truck stop, in fact we meet so many guys like across the country who sadly give drivers a bad name, you must be the drive they spoke about who spit in the face of the guy and threw the £20 in a puddle and told him to pick it up if he wanted it, when we stay and get there at the correct time, you receive a warm welcome, free coffee, £1.95, free Shower, £3.00, Free meal (up to) £10.00. Best food at any truck stop or motorway services and a further Coffee if requested £1.95,so come guys £3 approx for parking ' you really need to start being respectful to these truck stops who do care for good honest working people, it's no wonder 3 quarters of truck stops have closed over the past few years with attitudes like yours, stop giving us truckers a bad name,
