  • Truckstop Review – Avon Lodge café, Avonmouth

    7th March 2019

    More industrial estates should have quality truckstops, and it would be nice to think any planning permission for future sites should include provision for an establishment as a requirement to gain approval to build. One truckstop on an industrial estate…

  • Truckstop review – Samantha’s Diner, Goole

    7th March 2019

    Samantha’s Diner in Goole is a typical truckstop; it might look like a no frills establishment but it delivers what it sets it to do – being geared up to cater well for truck drivers. It’s clean and a pleasant…

  • Truckstop review – Coneygarth Services, Leeming Bar

    7th February 2019

          The A1 in North Yorkshire has undergone a lot of investment in recent times and remains a busy trunk road for heavy good vehicles. That means there is a great need for decent truckstops. One such site…

  • Truckstop review – Nunney Catch café, Frome

    22nd January 2019

    The Nunney Catch café is a real old school, traditional truckstop near the town of Frome on the roundabout where the A359 road from Bruton joins the A361 Shepton Mallet to Trowbridge main road at Nunney in Somerset, close to…

  • Truckstop Review – J31 Café Aston, Sheffield

    22nd January 2019

    Sadly, the need to keep the premises secure means the Junction 31 café is surrounded by rather uninviting palisade fencing, but don’t let that put you off as the establishment is not only incredibly friendly but it offers good, honest…

    22nd January 2019

    Few truckstops have the stunning views that are afforded from the Stainmore café and if you sit in the right seats, you can enjoy those scenic views of the Northern Fells while you eat! Stainmore café is on the busy…

  • Truckstop Review – Whitley Bridge Truckstop 

    22nd January 2019

    Those of us in the transport industry know there is a chronic shortage of overnight suitable parking for lorry drivers and while big truckstops with lots of facilities are all well and good, sometimes they are not commercially viable in…

  • Truckstop Review – Junction 38, Tebay, Cumbria

    26th November 2018

    It’s easy to feel for those ‘forced’ to use motorway services when there are far superior facilities just a stone’s throw away from some junctions, and that is the case with the Junction 38 truckstop just off, not surprisingly, junction…

  • Truckstop review – Trucker’s rest, Cannock

    23rd October 2018

    The Trucker’s Rest is a family-run, real ‘old school’, or ‘proper’, transport café. It’s on the busy A5 trunk road in Cannock, Staffordshire, just a short distance from junctions 11 and 12 of the M6. Sure it’s not going to…
